Paul Gale, who first reported that Retro Studios was working on something for the Wii U, has shared a huge rumour that their “something” might be a cross-over title that combines the Star Fox and Metroid franchises, which is probably already making you drool with anticipation. And yeah, me too.
The game, referred to as Fusion Saga, begins with Fox McCloud amidst a deep-space mission in his Arwing and a high-speed collision with a ship piloted by our beloved Samus Aran. She plummets to the surface of a planet and is “stripped down” with “the most basic of weapon abilities, in first person perspective, traversing through this unknown planet”. As for the general gameplay, it switches between:
…intense Arwing space and planetary battles as Fox makes his way to the planet that Samus crashed on and a Metroid Prime-like experience of gameplay as Samus on this planet, gradually uncovering its mysteries, leveling up, etc.
(Please tell me you’re drooling like I am.)
This sounds incredible, but it’s a huge rumour, so don’t go around saying this will definitely happen. For the time being ( and to find out more), click here to read the full report. Then come back here and say how badly you want this game in the comments. It will make this feel like a lot more of a possibility.
