    That's like.. Your opinion, man.

    Anyway, a new Ridge Racer title? Oh maaaaan... Hopefully it feels more like the classic arcade titles than anything.

    Tell that to my wallet....


    I don't think they are, because they said "unnannounced" which sets off some red flags,
    like, lets be honesty, if I was telling people that(I was deving for Metroid), I would just be bland and be like "First person shooter, exclusively on switch"

    "May 2016" tells me this position came well before the official announcement.. So they may have not updated the description.

    Eh, I think it'll be okay. I mean when Retro first made Prime, it was their very first FPS game. As for Retro, do they even want to work on another Metroid game? Or are they sick of working on the series after 3 games?

    Personally, I hope the team that made Samus Returns works on a Super Metroid remake for 3DS/Switch. :D I know this is a very unpopular thing to say, but I played Fusion/Zero mission first, and found Super Metroid's controls to be clunky compared to the GBA games. I beat it, but I hated the controls.

    I wouldnt be worried, Kensuke Tanabe is still the producer of the Game. Namco mainly does the Design and Programming.
    And thats where I think they are best at.

    As long as they have some one highly capable of producing the high-technical pseudo-scientific scan entries the series is known for. God, I love those.

    its not an opinion its a fact lol every mario party on wii and wiiu sucked balls, just look at reviews or even play it, the car thing made them so bad they lost all the fun they had, that and the minigames got progresively worse :S

    i wish mario party top 100 was a switch title instead of 3ds.

    Strange to call games as "title" as it devalues and makes it rather vague what one is referring to. Then again, I've seen eBooks on the Play Store being called "titles" so.. fuck. When I'll want to search something in the future it won't be easy. Everything's a title. Title this, title that. Title, title, tile.

    Anyway, BANDAI has some great devs so if that's true then it's good news.
