Rumor: Retro Studios Developing a Star Fox Racing Game for Switch

A new rumor is making the rounds – one that points to a new Star Fox game being developed for the Nintendo Switch.

The new rumor first appeared on Reddit and 4Chan, and it claims that Retro Studios are working on a Star Fox racing game spin-off, appropriately titled Star Fox Grand Prix.

Whomever made the original post claims the game will be “something like Diddy Kong Racing mixed with F-Zero, but more like F-Zero gameplay. It will have an adventure mode of some kind (think Diddy Kong Racing), and there will be boss fights and a hub world like it, too.”

Here’s what the game’s logo is purportedly like:

Eurogamer weighed in and said that while they haven’t heard the official title, details surrounding the project match what they’ve heard thus far.

For now, chalk this up to a rumor until we hear something from Nintendo – probably at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. Sound off in the comments below if you’d like a Star Fox racing game! Also please join me in a joint scream of anguish that we might be getting a spinoff racing game for  Star Fox but not a proper new F-Zero game.
