Gamesradar- The Wii U has officially launched in North America, and though it doesn’t hit with an absolute deluge of games, it had a fairly respectable number of launch titles. But still, despite launching with another New Super Mario Bros. game, other major Nintendo franchises were MIA.
For instance, the only taste of Metroid we have on the system is in Nintendo Land, and that’s far from a full release. But while a Metroid game on the Wii U seems inevitable, the direction of the franchise is anything but certain. It’s somehow been a staggering 10 years since Metroid Prime took the franchise 3D but only two since Metroid: Other M shifted the series’ focus more towards character-driven narrative. We wouldn’t necessarily call Other M a misstep, but it definitely makes us wonder what’s next for Samus. So, here are 10 things we think Metroid needs to deliver in order to succeed on the Wii U.
