I have been waiting 10 years for this game.
Soooo I may have just found the profile (which looks very legit) and a few others which definitely match timelines of said person and unannounced titles.
I mean, seriously lol.
Ugh...remember what happened the last time Metroid was farmed out?
Nintendo is going after some pretty crazy exclusives lol.
Ridge Racer, Shin Megami Tensei and Bayonetta. Cool stuff.
It sounds too real I have to believe.
Strange choice. Why groom an external development studio that is owned by another company? Maybe they had a really talented pitch or something.
Stranger things have happened, but this is most likely fake.
Era: Support small devs
Also Era: Never heard of these guys before... their game is gonna suck lol
I know you are probably talking about Other M and Federation Force. But that was more the fault of the people at Nintendo (Sakamoto and Tabane) than the team they hired to work on the games.
Also remember when Bamco said they were gonna reveal 3 exclusives for the Switch in Spring-Summer of this year? Well Ridge Racer could be one of those exclusives announced in the coming months.
I would think of this as more of a Smash 4 situation.
Seems weird that devs would confirm unannounced games via their profile page.
At least for ridge racer.
I really want a new real Ridge Racer but AC7 is PC, Ps4 and XB1 (yay) so I can't really take this as confirmation.
This is a bit of a stretch but someone at Namco asked and provided polls for which Ace Combat and Ridge Racer they would like to see remade. Now it would make sense for them to think about that kind of stuff with Ace Combat as they will be able to reuse assets post release. My hope is they will do the same for RR too. I'm dreaming at this point though, I just want my RR8 and R4 faithful remake.
Pretty sure I'm the only person in this thread who don't care about Metroid and wants to know more about Ridge Racer lol
Will take these rumors with a grain of salt.
Ace Combat isn't exclusive though
edit: oh, the VR mode. Carry on.
But I really find this line quite strange, MP4 has been announced since E3 2017.
That might be interesting to check the date of the last update of the linkedln profile - if even possible- that's seem quite a big hole if they still consider MP4 as announced and really working on it (except if, obviously, Nintendo does not want them to reveal this information for some reasons).
I really don't know what to think, I have the feeling that's not MP4.
If this is true and this new Ridge Racer would be somewhat like the GOAT 4, I'd buy a Switch in a heartbeat.
So, are we ignoring the false information about Ace Combat while believing the other info nonetheless?
I’ll wait and see if thr rumours are true. If Metroid Prime 4 turns out to be the next Tales of Samus...I’ll be sooooo disappointed :’(
I hope Bamco doesn’t pooch this one up. I have faith Nintendo is directing the game with Namco artsyle..
Edit: Riidgggggeeeeee Racccccceeeerrrrr, here’s to Kaz Hirai’s giddiness and ackwardness at that E3
It's not even really about Tanabe here. Nintendo tends to bring out the best of the developer that's doing the work under them (exception to this might be the Star Fox franchise). We can be reasonably sure that more than Tanabe is working on this from Nintendo. If Bandai Namco IS working on it, I'm sure it's a matter of working under Nintendo's direction on most-if not all- matters.
Nintendo probably needs to outsource for the man power.
Is the Ridge Racer series good?
The listing is 100% not fake. The dev that this was pulled from is extremely reputable and has worked for other very reputable publishers. Whether it's Metroid Prime 4 is another thing.
Ridge Racer 8
Tales of _
And I mean, Retro was a ragtag mess of nobodies and former Acclaim devs in the days that Metroid Prime 1 was made, so it's not like this is without precedent.
These 3 exclusive games Bamco promised for Switch could be Metroid Prime 4, Ridge Racer 8 and the new Tales of.
We will see how this looks probably within 4 months.
Not much reason to get excited as of now, but no reason to be that worried either. If it looks good, then we can get excited. If it doesn't look good, then probably OK to be disappointed.
It definitely is a STRANGE choice, but we'll see soon enough...
Maybe you play Ridge Racer inside Samus' visor while exploring?
If this turns out to be true I think we should give them the benefit of the doubt, I remember how people overreacted when the Mario+rabbids info was out and the game ended up being a freaking awesome game.
IDK. I think it would be cool if this were true and pans out well.
I don't really have a developer in my mind that I think should and would do Metroid Prime (Retro/EPD being the should but probably wouldn't) so...I'm wait and see on the product, if it lives up to my hopes and dreams or not and to what extent either way.
What exactly has led people to believe the next tales of is a switch exclusive now that its even a regular on pc of all things?
However the last time namco managed a Nintendo ip on their own we got that less than stellar starfox game.
Neither Nintendo nor namco have inhouse FPS experience which adds additional concerns but I have a feeling prime 4 won’t be first person.
Ridge Racer exlcusive to the Switch?... say it ain't so!
