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.

Theyellowflash301428d 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.

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.

Theyellowflash301428d ago

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.

Shok1428d 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.

I'd really rather see a 2d metroid on 3DS or even something like other M... which imho was a great game.

nerdkiller1428d ago

A 2-D Metroid in the same manner as Shadow Complex would be the bees knees.

beerkeg1427d ago

What, the same Shadow Complex that was inspired by Super Metroid?

Ben_Grimm1427d ago

Yes, the one that appears on HD consoles, and took that concept to new hieghts.
