Ok, what the hell; Metroid/Starfox Mash up by Retro

The Paul Gale Network, which is renowned for posting rather obscure rumours, claims that the game Retro Studio’s is working on for Wii U is a Star Fox and Metroid collaboration. We already know that Retro Studios are possibly working on a Star Fox title for Wii U, although this idea sounds a little too far-fetched. All will be revealed at E3 which takes place in just a few weeks.

Some folk at Retro Studios wanted to develop a new ip that involved 3rd person sci-fi action with intense aerial combat.
Others apparently were leaning towards taking the Star Fox helm.
Nintendo sees Retro Studios as a very competent developer and worked with them in creating the hybrid title of Star Fox – Metroid: Fusion Saga.
The title has multiple gameplay mechanics and needed a wide staff of talent to incorporate the many ideas.
The story begins as you control Fox McCloud and the Star Fox team on deep space mission in your Arwing, flying through a Meteos-like stage. As you enter a light speed warp, there’s a collision with an orange ship (Samus’) and the game continues with you now plummeting to a planet as Samus in her craft. You’re in mild control of her ship, using the Wii U controller to look around and touch screen press the lit up buttons to prepare for impact (while the TV stays locked on what you see out of the cockpit). You’re now on land, as a “yet again” stripped down Samus Aran with the most basic of weapon abilities, in first person perspective, traversing through this unknown planet.
The game switches off between intense Arwing space and planetary battles as Fox makes his way to the planet that Samus crashed on and a Metroid Prime-like experience of gameplay as Samus on this planet, gradually uncovering its mysteries, leveling up, etc.
The Star Fox stages represent what the series is best known for, including the chatter and coming to the aid of the rest of your team, all range mode battles, and on rails stages.
The Metroid part of the game puts you alone, void of human or any talking character contact, and like the Prime series, sees you gaining upgrades, battling bosses, and in this case, repairing your ship.
The game is said to be epic in size, scope, ambition.
The pacing has been perfected to not interrupt what the feeling is behind either franchise, since Star Fox is more often known for being acceptable to have short sessions with and Metroid rather the opposite. You can opt to continue playing either just Samus’ part or Fox’s part without crossing over for much of the main game (or play it as it’s scripted back and forth), but will eventually have to complete both, as the characters will ultimately meet up.
There will be later parts in the game where you do get to control Samus’ ship and fly it Star Fox style.
Likewise, Fox McCloud will be controllable by foot (both the above and this bullet point represent a period in the game after the two sides meet up) and be played via 3rd person perspective. Think of Jet Force Gemini with Fox’s known agility as he’s portrayed to having in the Smash Bros. series. (Fox will move more like Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden and less like he did in Star Fox Adventures).
Though a tentative title, the idea behind the story of “Fusion Saga” is both a play on the fact that the two series are fusing together into one game and of course, a storyline behind Andross using Metroids to enhance himself, his army, etc.
Star Fox – Metroid: Fusion Saga is wholly a satisfying adventure game as Samus, an equally electrifying aerial combat game as Fox, and something that delivers an exciting, special change that fans will love.
In consideration was the Star Fox portion having 4 player co-op online, but instead the game will have leaderboards for time and percent complete for all parts of the game and multiplayer will be simply versus mode based.

Ummm.....that sounds...interesting?

While this was the same site that leaked Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale and DKC Return.....This is still hard to wrap around my head

Thoughts?

I've heard about this rumour just a few days ago, but it seems like that this crossover idea was really just a rumour and Retro Studios will work on seperate titles for Star Fox and Metroid. It's clear that Star Fox won't be a launch title for Wii U, but Retro Studios don't even have an idea of what kind of Star Fox game they should produce. I've read in a German discussion topic that many people want to have a Star Fox Adventures 2, but I don't really think that it would work out well since Star Fox is actually a Shooter franchise. For me, Star Fox Adventures should stay unique, Retro Studios should carry on with the franchise like it's known, maybe putting back the air and ground missions like in Assault, and make them a bit more challenging (though getting Gold Medals in Assault is pissing me off). It is kind of hard to guess what Retro Studios is actually planing with the Star Fox franchise, but I have a good feeling that they will do a good job no matter what they will produce. Remember Donkey Kong Country Returns... brilliant, just brilliant. Nuff said.

Just take the Metroid elements and replace them with a different side of the story or something.

Agreed!

I also hope we never get another "Star Fox Command", that was a disaster.

Heh heh heh. Some people didn't like it.

You gotta admit, though, the gameplay to the very core itself wasn't that bad besides the time limit.

Ugh, the time limits...

Now, Star Fox Adventures was cute, but wrong. A direct sequel to it...naw, not worth it.

Also very expressive and cute. Also, you can see the individual hairs sometimes.
