They should have chose Metroid, the DKC Returns wasnt that long ago and I have been wanting a new Metroid Prime badly

You know that means that after DK they could possibly go back to Metroid though, right? Works for me. This DK game is practically guaranteed to be awesome.

This DK game releases in October,so i wouldn't be surprised if next E3 they had at least a Metroid teaser ready.

Really it was hard to choose? Metroid is a no brainer to much Donkey Kong all at once stop beating the dead horse Retro. WTF is wrong with Retro, they can make a killing if they released a new Metroid on Wii U and on 3DS come this holiday, instead we get this game...Again! I am not happy...

I agree. A new Metroid Prime (or any Metroid game, for that matter) would have looked BEAUTIFUL on the Wii U, not to mention all the cool stuff the Gamepad could've been used for. But no, we get a bunch of apes jumping through trees. Again. *sigh*

Well, considering DKCR sits on around 6 million sales, it really isn't that much of a no brainer to do a Metroid game instead. I was extremely disappointed also, but they do an amazing job on these DK games. Everyone is sure to love it. Not the most popular choice as we all had such high expectations, but now that this is out of the way, they better have some mind blowing Metroid (or a new IP) to show us at E3 2015. I actually refuse to believe that this is the only game they are currently working on. We all were hyped for good reason. There is another game that we don't know about currently in development...

Yea didn't they release like an HD port to the 3DS not too long ago? ;)

That wasn't Retro, you tool. It was a developer called Monster Games.

Am I the only one here who doesn't mind they chose DK over Metroid?

Though it would be nice to see a (good) new Metroid game, I've always preferred Donkey Kong over Metroid.

Er... the Donkey Kong Country games.

Why not Star Fox, Retro Studios? I'm sure you can do it.

I like them both the same. Both AAA franchises. DK sounds almost done, they are probably getting started on Metroid as we speak.
