A rumor has been flying around today about a new Star Fox game being made by Retro Studios called Star Fox Grand Prix. Here’s the rundown according to Nintendo Insider:
“What Retro Studios is working on is a spinoff based on an existing Nintendo IP that they haven’t worked with before…. Star Fox.
It is actually a racing game. Something like Diddy Kong Racing mixed with F-Zero essentially. But more like F-Zero gameplay. It will have a adventure mode of some kind (think Diddy Kong Racing) and there will be some boss fights and a hub world like it too.
It is called Star Fox Grand Prix.”
They are giving credit to this post over on reddit. Here’s the issue I have with it, however: The reddit user is giving credit to Twitter user, part time Did You Know Gaming? member, & well known Nintendo leaker Liam Robertson. The issue is, when Liam tweeted about this, mere hours later he deleted said tweet and essentially admitted he was trolling people for fun. Why would he do that? This happened around the time certain “other” leaks were occurring, making me assume he was mocking the nature of believing those leaks to be fake.
The question is, was he really joshing people, or did he maybe go too far and is trying to pass it off as a joke? I suppose that’s up for you to decide.
