Cor, it feels like it's been a sweet minute since we last jumped on the rumour train, and this one is too interesting to pass up. It looks like there might be a new Star Fox game in the mix. Just remember to take everything you read here with a big ol' pinch of salt.
With E3 only a month away it's about the right time for rumours to start flying, but this one's got a lot of traction fast. According to Reddit user DasVergeben, Retro Studios (Metroid Prime) may be working on a mashup game called Star Fox: Grand Prix.
"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."
While DasVergeben's record isn't spotless, Eurogamer earlier confirmed that its own sources had heard something similar. It'd surely be interesting to see Star Fox reimagined in such a way, though not everyone is too chuffed with the idea, even in rumour stage.
But, hey ho, we all thought Mario x Rabbids would be an awful combination and look how that turned out.
What do you guys think of the news? Do you think a mashup like this is just what the franchise needs? Let us know in the comments below.
