Retro teasing new game with pictures of Prime Steaks

Postby Big Guy » 02.09.17 5:02pm

I didn't see anything from the MDb staff so I thought it would be worthwhile to make a thread about it.

When asked about it Retro posted the following

It's worth noting that all the pieces have prime numbers on them

Needless to say this has me pretty hard. If it's revealed to indeed be a proper Metroid Prime game and it looks to be shaping up well I'd have trouble not dropping $300 on a console for it, I'm that starved for some quality Metroid action.

It's because there's nothing to report on. The staff at Retro ate some TX BBQ. The end. It's the fucking overhyped media putting ideas in your head. :/

I would agree with you if it wasn't 4 years since they released Tropical Dong. As for overhyped media, as far as I know the media hasn't reported on it since not very many people really follow them on twitter, where they've been putting up notices that they're hiring for new positions: https://twitter.com/RetroStudios/status ... 7622742018. Though I admit this is grasping at straws, a man has to keep hope alive somehow.

Less of a tease for Prime and maybe more that they may just be trying to draw attention to themselves in general. After Tropical Freeze there was a lot of media hype about where Retro will go next but it never went anywhere and Retro fell off the map (I would even say people stopped caring and they went kind of irrelevant for a while). Maybe this is an attempt to draw some of those eyes back on them just to remind people they aren't dead.

If it was Donkey Kong, it would be bananas.

Developers like to be cheeky. It usually doesn't mean anything. Retro's due to reveal whatever they've been stuck on but I'd not expect anything before E3.

I assumed as much, this was obviously something to garner attention since they've been quiet since 2014. Still, I think it's funny and I thoroughly enjoy conspiracy theories.

I'm not sure if I'm ready for this new age of the MDb where IE makes Metroid memes and the Facebook page is extremely active.

Well crap.


Retro still has no involvement so it likely wasn't a tease on their end.

Nintendo apparently has a new internal development team on the project. Their new blood has been on a roll lately with Splatoon and ARMS so if nothing else we can expect something unique, or at least a unique twist on the established formula. Right now I'm just hoping that if they stick with FPS that Nintendo doesn't feel the need to shoehorn in some form of competitive multiplayer. There's more than enough of that on the market at the moment and it's never sat right with Metroid in the first place. If anything hold it off for another spinoff, like a proper Hunters sequel, and leave MP4 singleplayer focused.
