Star Fox – Metroid: Fusion Saga rumour put to rest

The rumoured development of crossover title Star Fox – Metroid: Fusion Saga has now been debunked.

Paul Gale Network, where the rumour originated, have today shared an update detailing that whilst it had been a working concept, it isn’t the project currently in development at Retro Studios.

“According to my source, the game was indeed at one time a proposal,” Gale explains. “Furthermore, the idea of Star Fox and Metroid crossing paths in a more unified Nintendo universe represented but one of several potential team-up projects that Nintendo has been considering.

“Games like Pokémon + Nobunaga’s Ambition and Project X Zone (Capcom/Namco Bandai/Sega game in development by Monolith Soft) were also thought up during this period of establishing more Nintendo character familiarity, helping build up less popular franchises, and showing the core demographic that going into the eighth generation of gaming with Wii U and 3DS, Big N is a forward thinking company.”

So, what exactly are Retro Studios up to…?
