Rumor!!! Rumor!!! Rumor Alert!!!
Retro Studios getting Primed for Metroid 4 on Wii U and 3DS
I highly doubt this site's credibility but man I wish this was true.
@yellowflash, you mean to say you were in the room when the site owner got an email that even he himself doesnt trust the source. AND you make an article about it? I thought N4G was not going to allow hearsay articles. I guess anyone could claim they heard something as a rumor, make up an article about it and submit it for all to read. I just....the words escape me (facepalm).
Dude, relax... He told me to publish it because he felt that it might be true. We hear all sorts of rumors and NEVER post them. Our site mainly does opinion articles and news. The ONLY reason we posted this is because we feel it has a good possiblity of being true. We both felt it was important to state we don't trust this source all the time cause hes only right 25% of the time. But he has told us rumors that did come up to be true.
Well, it HAS been at least 6 years. A new Metroid game is inevitable. Other M was in 2010, but developed by Team Ninja. Other than that, yeah, new Metroid game is definitely coming. However, it won't be for another while.
I work for the site, The site is credible. I was actually in the same room when the site owner got this email. If you read the article. He Clearly states its a rumor and he doesn't even trust the source of where he got it from. But he felt it was necessary to post because it is not out of the realm of possibilty.
Well I'm convinced. /sarcasm
The fact that Retro Studios "wasn't ready" at E3, screamed new IP. Retro invented the entire Prime concept. Metroid Prime is also a proven series that speaks for itself. I doubt that it would be considered for the "overhaul treatment". The article claims that Retro has had kits for quite some time. So, how long does it take to produce a 30 second clip? Retro Studios is incapable of this level of incompetence. Prime 4 may come eventually, but I doubt it's being worked on right now.
If you remember Retro had a few key staff members leave the company. Those distractions could have slowed the team down a bit. Or even the production of the 3DS game might have got them off track. Either way we all want this to happen.
They had people leave but they also recruited A LOT of help. They hired people from Vigil, Crytek, DICE, and even Naughty Dog. They have some serious talent on their team right now.
I'd really rather see a 2d metroid on 3DS or even something like other M... which imho was a great game.
screw you other m was crap give me retro back with a fps metroid and with online these are the rumors i like to hear come on nintendo give me the games i want metroid fps enternal darkness 2 zeldas as good as the n64 ones wii zeldas stunk i also want new games and ones you didnt give us this gen project hammer and luigis mansion ive been waiting to use my wiimote like a flash light
Screw punctuation too!
A 2-D Metroid in the same manner as Shadow Complex would be the bees knees.
What, the same Shadow Complex that was inspired by Super Metroid?
Yes, the one that appears on HD consoles, and took that concept to new hieghts.
well you know what they say, you can't have a trilogy without a 4th entry =]
Well... You know what they say, all toasters toast, toasts.
A new metroid game will without a doubt come out on 3DS or Wii U exclusively, probably not both. It works with super smash bros, but not metroid.
I want metroid, this and a new star fox( a true one) will make me buy a wiiu, and I dont mind a new zelda with uncharted graphics and awesome gameplay
@ sider do you pay my bills no so no need to do things the way you want
@Sidar, Do you pay my bills? No, so no need to do things the way you want. Punctuation, makes a world of difference. You can either "Help your Uncle Jack off his horse." or "Help your uncle jack off his horse." Which would you prefer?
LMAO I've never heard that one, very funny. Bubble +
yes it would help if im writing a book but this is blogging the only ppl on here who care for proper gramer are the ones with a stick up there ass do you understand that or do you need me to use punctuation one bubble boy
You're just lazy. Notice how the word "your" wasn't used. It's people like you that promote this crap grammar. It makes us all look stupid. Thanks
"@ sidar your vocabulary on the english language is god damn awful" That's coming from you? I say, you're laughable.
I could see on wii-u and hope it's true.a full 1080p HD 60fps metroid prime 4 would be amazing!and with Retro adding all those veteran developer's lately you know it would be amazing.I hope there's a option for the wii remote and nunchuck because it worked great for the trilogy!
but also being on 3ds I don't thinks so.it would be it's own game and be amazing in 3d and I hope Retro will do that one too.
Metroid game on the Wii U would be amazing. I'd actually love a Super Metroid sequel..let me rephrase, a 'worthy' Super Metroid sequel on the Wii U. But a new prime game is ALWAYS welcome. Especially with Retro at the helm.
Metroid on the Wii-U would make a great launch title. That would give me a reason to buy a WII-U
Don't hold your breath. Metroid Prime was released a year AFTER GameCube came out.
A console/handheld crossover makes sense for a game like Smash Bros. It doesn't make much sense for something on the scale of Metroid Prime.
i think a retro metroid will appear in the wii-u, but not on the 3ds...
The last metroid i played was super metroid waay back when....so one on the wiiU would actually make me consider buying one.
Hell no they can keep that shi* nobody want anymore fake matroid games. What is it going to take for nintendo. to make a real game.
Metroid prime is fantastic....don't know wtf ur smoking but it's bad stuff
Exactly what to you is a real game? Oh wait let me take a big ol' guess-a-roo. Call of Duty?
It would be wise for Retro to be working on a FPS, an open world city (real or fantasy) game, or something along the lines of Heavy Rain. These are things that are missing from Nintendo and its 2nd Parties- I would like to see them attempt a game like this. They need an IP (new or old) presented with a more "Core" friendly appeal (if they want the so-called "Cores" attention). Me? LoZ: SS2 on Wii would make me happy- but not the "Core" I would buy another MP but the "Core" probably would want a more FPS formatted experience. Call it a spin-off or an experiment.
If true Im buying U
Come on people quit acting stupid its obvious this is going to happen. Its like not believing Halo 5 is coming after Halo 4 quit acting stupid why would nintendo not want this.
Microsoft has confirmed that Halo 5 is indeed coming. They said they plan a new trilogy starting with Halo 4.
Well in that case make it Halo 6 or 7
Come on people quit acting stupid its obvious this is going to happen. Its like not believing Halo 5 is coming after Halo 4 quit acting stupid why would Nintendo not want this. Jeez after so many times you kind of get used to it.
no doubt that retro is cooking something special for the next metroid on wiiu, its just a matter of when it comes out.
Hmm, wonder which version will look better.
I think is obvious that the Wii u version will look better
Please all that is good and holy, let this be true.
this rumor could be true retro studios did say that they working on the game everyone was hoping for which could be metroid or star fox.
I would really like them to remake metroid from the beginning just take me back to the cave!!!
It would be awesome if the 2D metroidvania style game that was rumored to be for DS was made for the 3DS.. I would love a sprite based metroid game on it as well as a sprite castlevania.. Thats why i bought a 3ds to begin with.. The DS castlevanias were awesome but now mistwalker is doing it sadly..
