The Redditor shared information about the game on the Star Fox subreddit and compared the project to some of Nintendo's past racing games. So, the new Star Fox - whose name apparently is Star Fox Grand Prix - would have a kind of story mode with battles against bosses and a world that will work as a Hub. While that's pretty shady, it's worth noting that outlets like Eurogamer confirm that numerous details that have emerged since the initial Reddit report do match some of the information they've heard regarding Retro Studios' next project.
Reports suggest that Retro Studios is working on a racing title based on the Star Fox series.
Supposedly the gameplay will be similar to F-Zero but the structure will be closer to Rare's N64 classic Diddy Kong Racing. These rumors appeared on both Reddit and 4chan, with one of them even including an image with a logo.
While this rumor has some steam behind it, Nintendo has not commented on the game's existence. An F-Zero game from Retro is something I can get behind.

I laughed everyday, and I will miss that the most", Remini wrote. 'I wouldn't trade this experience for anything in the world... I was so blessed to be able to work every day with the most wonderful cast, crew, writers and support team! So thank you all.
According to a Eurogamer report, Retro Studios is now developing a Star Fox spinoff that will have players race instead of fight in space.
The idea that the studio responsible for past Metroid Prime games and more recently the Switch version of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is working on the racing spin-off comes from the Redditor DasVergeben (via Nintendo Insider), a Redditor known for leaking information on games in the past.
When Metroid Prime 4 was announced previous year at E3, the conclusion most came to was that Retro Studios was working on it. Instead, Bandai Namco has taken the reins and will bring the franchise to Nintendo's surging new hardware. So completely different to normal F-Zero and with seemingly nothing in common with any previous Star Fox game. If you're a Retro Studios fan, though, you may have been hoping for something a bit grander.
