Alexander Brandon – composer, audio director, voice actor and more – recently posted about his projects for 2017 on his Facebook page. One interesting tidbit was about the fan favorite Nintendo game dev, Retro Studios.

“I’m currently working with Retro Studios here in Austin. As much as I’d like to say more (except the work is incredibly exciting and the team is awesome), I can’t. ”

Yes, Retro Studios. The lack of a title name drop coupled with the fact that Alexander is a Metroid fan… Let’s just say those fanboy and girl heart strings are getting tugged hard. The chance of it being Metroid? It would be lovely to see Retro Studios return to the franchise, but given that it’s 2017 and the Nintendo Switch is building its library up, maybe a sequel for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is in the works?

For a bit of background, Alexander Brandon worked on music for the likes of Vigilante 8, Deus Ex, Unreal Tournament and more.

Time to place your bets and hopes to where this may lead. A Metroid game with the sound stylings of Deus Ex would be fantastic – do you agree?
