The Official Nintendo Magazine asked Nintendo supervisor Hiro Yamada if Retro is not making making Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, then what is the Austin, Texas developer up to?

"I wonder what kind of game it is? I hope to introduce it to you in the not so distant future."

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said in September that Retro's Wii U game will be "fantastic."

"Rest assured that Retro is working on a fantastic project," he said at the time. "We've got big games in development that are coming that are going to continue to drive the install base of the system."

Last week, Nintendo announced that it would not host a major presentation at E3 2013 in favor of smaller events to showcase new titles.

Retro Studios' most recent game was Donkey Kong Country Returns, which was released in November 2010 to a warm critical reception and sales of nearly 5 million units. The studio also collaborated with Nintendo EAD on 2011's Mario Kart 7, and was named by Miyamoto as a candidate to work on a future Legend of Zelda installment.
