I agree: this rumor sounds incredibly bizarre, but it really seems that a Star Fox racing spin-off is coming.

The rumor of a racing game based on the Star Fox universe began to spread yesterday and, today, Eurogamer has confirmed they have also heard similar.

Retro Studios (Metroid Prime trilogy) seems to be developing the game, which (according to the sources) would feature an adventure mode and will be titled Star Fox Grand Prix

The title will be a racing game “like Diddy Kong Racing mixed with F-Zero”

“It will have an adventure mode of some kind (think Diddy Kong Racing) and there will be some boss fights and a hub world like it too.”

“It is called Star Fox Grand Prix.”

As always, take this info with tons of salt.

Stay tuned.
