Nintendo has always been full of surprises. When the industry zigs, they zag, and when fans expect them to announce one type of game, they give us a completely different one (for example, the recent Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake). They are also notoriously perfectionist in nature, with the recent development restart of Metroid Prime 4 being a paramount example.

But now there’s word of them doing the exact opposite. Last week, Game Informer senior editor Imran Khan was on the Kinda Funny Games show, where he teased a potential new announcement for the Big N:

“Let me hint at something, I guess. This is a thing that I’m going to write up at some point as soon as I get some more sources on it. But there’s a game that’s thought to be dead that Nintendo’s reviving, and it’s not one that people would expect. It was very much a title that was dead and buried – very officially canceled.”

There was, unfortunately, no word on what the game is or how long ago it was canceled, so there isn’t a whole lot to go off of here. Some speculation out there includes the likes of Donkey Kong Racing, which was announced for the Nintendo GameCube. Personally, for no reason at all, my money’s on Raven Blade, an old Retro Studios game that was supposed to come out on Nintendo GameCube.

Given how much success RPGs have been on the Nintendo Switch, I can see this being an interesting new I.P. to exploit. That being said, it could literally be any project ever, so it really is up on the air as to what this game could actually be. What do you think? Let us know your thoughts down below!
