Remember that rumour that a Diddy Kong Racing 2 would come out in 2016?
They said Retro Studios would work on the Wii U version, Monster Games would work on the 3DS version and Nintendo bought Timber out from Microsoft and Rare.
Diddy Kong Racing 2 Rumour Details:

Tanabe is a key player and is largely responsible for making this all happen
Amiibo’s were critical in reviving NoJs interest in DKR2. internal forecasts show Amiibo’s will sell like hotcakes and nintendo is going to make amiibos of nearly every franchise they have ever owned. one major objective of the game is to boost the popularity of lesser known franchises in order to push amiibos
“I’m gonna have to finally come out and be “that guy” in this thread.
Never thought this would be something I could say, but I have a line of communication with Monster, and while I can’t confirm 100% it’s DKR2, I can confirm, perhaps well outside my comfort level, that they’re working on something for the WiiU that is pretty much talked about by everyone involved as the most exciting thing to be done on WiiU yet, and that they are certain it’s going to blow people away upon reveal. I genuinely wasn’t told details because while I may want to know, I don’t trust myself with that much knowledge, so it’s likely best they didn’t either.”

“More fuel to the fire; Nintendo might have bought Timber in Oct 2012″

So, could this be?
I honestly hope it happens at E3.
It looks like the game would use Diddy Kong, Timber, and a bunch of other small Nintendo characters, and have its own amiibo series.

Ugh, I honestly hope not. I'm not a fan of Diddy Kong Racing, and I feel like there's enough racing going on for Wii U already with Mario Kart 8. (unless, of course, it's a 3DS game, which I'd be fine with as long as we're still getting something else from Retro)

Maybe it's related to an Amiibo though?

The original rumour said Nintendo was interested mainly because they could sell amiibo.
They also said it was why Diddy Kong was kept from Mario Kart 8.
The rumour also said Dillon from Dillon's Rolling Western, Mallo from Pushmo and Rusty from Rusty's Real Deal Baseball would be playable.
I think they could sell really well here, both the games and amiibo.

I would rather just see Diddy be DLC for Mario Kart 8. I also think it's fake since Retro is likely going back to Metroid or working on a new IP.
