Nintendo has cancelled the current development of Metroid Prime 4 after subpar results from the current team. Retro Studios has been assigned to restart the project from square 1. Naturally this will set Prime 4's release quite significantly, making me wonder if perhaps it will just end up being moved to Switch 2 in the end.
^ That's what my hope would be, whatever project they are working on (including that Star Fox Grand Prix rumor) would be announced/released this year while it wraps up giving them the resources to work in Prime 4.
After looking through the credits list for DKCTF (Switch) it appears Retro did that version all by themselves with no assistance from Monster Games unlike the Wii U version and credited 69 employees compared to 105 for the Wii U version and that includes a few extra individuals for "contract sound". So there at least another 30 Retro staff who are either gone or are still working at Retro on SOMETHING.
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
