NintyChronicle recently interviewed Collin van Ginkel of Two Tribes, the company behind Toki Tori 2 for the Wii U. One of the questions asked was this:
Is there a company or franchise that you really want to work with someday, if given the opportunity?
I think we could make a damn fine Star fox game for Wii U. Yes, a classic Star Fox game would be awesome to work on.
The Star Fox series is in the same boat as the Metroid series: neither have received a new game on the Wii U nor has a new game in either series been announced or hinted at by Nintendo. Retro Studios proved their worth with the Metroid series in the Metroid Prime series, and again with the Donkey Kong series in Donkey Kong Country Returns. Team Ninja was sadly brushed aside by many Metroid fans in their work with Metroid Other M (although many fans do like the gameplay itself).
So the question is, if given the opportunity, could Two Tribes develop a game in the Star Fox series that would be well-received like Retro Studios or would they make a game which would be tragically looked down upon by the fanbase? What do you think?
