This comes from ResetEra, where a member stumbled upon some interesting tidbits regarding Nintendo-owned Retro Studios.
User ItWasMeantToBe19 discovered that a writer from the Metroid Prime developer recently updated their LinkedIn profile details, to offer details about an ambitious-sounding upcoming project.
Here’s what it says:
“Working with a highly skilled team to bridge the gaps between game design needs and telling a compelling story in a meaningful world. Finding the best ways to construct the narrative we want the player to experience with the tools and restrictions available through text, dialogue, and non-traditional storytelling.
* Key team member for collaborative worldbuilding, story construction, and IP development.
* Point of contact for supplemental prose writing.
* Special focus on designer collaboration for player experience storytelling.
Narrative specializations in worldbuilding, character development, design integration, non-linear storytelling, prose fiction”
Yep, that’s definitely not a new Donkey Kong game.
Considering legendary composer Alexander Brandon is confirmed to be working with the Texas-based studio on an “exciting” project, we think it’s a new, sci-fi based game for the Nintendo Switch.
Are you looking forward to this mysterious project? Could we see it in today’s Direct? Let us know what you think.
