Electronic Arts isn’t the same Electronic Arts of the past. It’s quite different now with its EA Partners program which includes the likes of id Software and Valve. Today, Kotaku revealed the latest EA Partner: Armature Studio. Armature consists of the former Retro Studios big shots who left the Nintendo second party developer a few months ago. According to the interview, they’ll be working on a new I.P. for EA.
This is a pretty big deal considering these are the main guys behind one of Nintendo’s greatest franchises, the Metroid Prime series. I can’t wait to see what these guys do with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 hardware.
