Will Star Fox X Metroid be shown at E3?

Two weeks ago one megaton a rumor started swirling around the Internet in the form of a Star Fox, Metroid, crossover. Well more info on that game has surfaced today. Does that mean we can expect to see Star Fox X Metroid at E3 next week?

In a word, no. The rumor originated on the Paul Gale Network on the 19th of May. Yesterday, Paul Gale himself put the rumor to rest stating: “The good news is that going into E3, I have an answer: No. This game is not what Retro Studios is currently working on and will not make an appearance at E3 next week.”

Personally, I had a hard time believing the rumor in the first place, and am glad that Retro Studios isn’t going to be making something with such a cockamamie premise. What does this mean to you? Well, perhaps the dream is still alive of Retro working on the next Zelda, amirite?

    Well, on the bright side…a developer somewhere is STILL working on a Star Fox / Metroid crossover…but it’ll also involve Mario / Kirby / Link / Captain Falcon / Ness and others…it’s called Super Smash Brothers 😛

    But seriously, This idea could have worked, but one end of it (either SF or Metroid) would have had to have been stretched or nerfed incredibly.

    This gives me an idea, actually…put one of Samus’ ships and one of the Arwing models (although preferably not the ones from SF Command) in the next F-Zero game! Sure, we already have a Star Fox reference, but that’s not good enough. I want to see Fox and Samus trying to race around the Blue Falcon. Make it happen, somebody.

    Hmm. Why not make some kind of new Nintendo Universe series for the Wii U, that will combine different ninty titles, with plenty of online play and DLC? Maybe a series of four games or so with each game combining two or more series, and all being able to access stuff from the other. Ooh ooh, and make it all available on the 3ds as well.

    It’s a shame. Considering that Nintendo pride themselves on innovation, they have to resort to rehashing the same old ‘save the princess’ formula 25 years later, and I for one am not impressed.
    They’re really going to have to wow me next week if they expect me to buy their new console (though the name alone has already drawn a strike against it).

    Personally, I think a game featuring Samus versus an army of Kirby-metroids would have been the way to go.

    El Demonio, have you said anything positive about Nintendo since you’ve commented here lately without it being a backhanded insult? Just curious.

    It seems I’m the only one disappointed here…

    This has already been proven false, so don’t worry it’s not happening

    Thank goodness this foolish nonsense is done. I hope Retro is doing some kind of Metroid HD or maybe Excite Truck HD.
