I highly doubt this site's credibility but man I wish this was true.

wait a minute
@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).
Theyellowflash30  +   1135d ago
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.
Theyellowflash30  +   1136d ago
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.

Phil32  +   1136d ago
Seriously... hehe
mike1up  +   1136d ago
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.
Shok  +   1135d ago
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.
GuruStarr78  +   1135d ago
I'd really rather see a 2d metroid on 3DS or even something like other M... which imho was a great game.
nerdkiller  +   1135d ago

Screw punctuation too!
Ben_Grimm  +   1135d ago
A 2-D Metroid in the same manner as Shadow Complex would be the bees knees.
beerkeg  +   1135d ago
What, the same Shadow Complex that was inspired by Super Metroid?
Ben_Grimm  +   1135d ago
Yes, the one that appears on HD consoles, and took that concept to new hieghts.
Summons75  +   1135d ago
well you know what they say, you can't have a trilogy without a 4th entry =]
Krew_92  +   1135d ago
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.
vividi  +   1135d ago
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
NastyLeftHook0  +   1135d ago
will buy
nerdkiller  +   1135d ago
@ sider do you pay my bills no so no need to do things the way you want
Freakazoid2012  +   1135d ago
@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?

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
swice  +   1135d ago
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.

ChickeyCantor  +   1134d ago
"@ sidar your vocabulary on the english language is god damn awful"

That's coming from you?
I say, you're laughable.
mshope10  +   1135d ago
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.
Gr81  +   1135d ago
A full fledged
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.
Magnus  +   1135d ago
Metroid on the Wii-U would make a great launch title. That would give me a reason to buy a WII-U
CarlosX360  +   1135d ago
Don't hold your breath. Metroid Prime was released a year AFTER GameCube came out.
isntchrisl  +   1135d ago
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.
kesvalk  +   1135d ago
i think a retro metroid will appear in the wii-u, but not on the 3ds...
optimus  +   1135d ago
The last metroid i played was super metroid waay back when....so one on the wiiU would actually make me consider buying one.
megamanX2  +   1135d ago
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.
Allsystemgamer  +   1135d ago
Metroid prime is fantastic....don't know wtf ur smoking but it's bad stuff
PopRocks359  +   1135d ago
Exactly what to you is a real game? Oh wait let me take a big ol' guess-a-roo.

Call of Duty?
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   1135d ago
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).

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.
Allsystemgamer  +   1135d ago
If true Im buying U
007Bond  +   1135d ago
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.
CarlosX360  +   1135d ago
Microsoft has confirmed that Halo 5 is indeed coming. They said they plan a new trilogy starting with Halo 4.
007Bond  +   1135d ago
Well in that case make it Halo 6 or 7
007Bond  +   1135d ago

Jeez after so many times you kind of get used to it.
wiiulee  +   1135d ago
no doubt that retro is cooking something special for the next metroid on wiiu, its just a matter of when it comes out.
NeoTribe  +   1135d ago
Hmm, wonder which version will look better.

Please all that is good and holy, let this be true.
HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   1135d ago
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!!!
DivineAssault  +   1135d ago
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..
