It sounds like Retro could have been in charge of the next Metroid game, had the company not decided to pursue the new Donkey Kong game for Wii U.
So, my dream of a 1080p 60fps metroid from retro is delayed. That's all I got from this.
Pretty much... but we all know it will come eventually.
Don't think a new metroid would be 1080p on Wii U.
Exactly. Donkey Kong is cool and all, I am just not the biggest fan of all time. If they had done Metroid, day one for me no doubt!
Exactly. Kind of a face palm moment really.
DK Country Returns = 5 mil sales, They did not want to risk as their first Wii U release. Metroid is on the way late 2014 or 2015
Well now you know what game they are working on next.
wait til the next Nintendo Direct for Wii U I am sure Nintendo will finally show it
Weve not long had a dk game which was great. Wish they had at least made it 3d instead of ANOTHER side scrolled. Ah well its Retro so itll still be incredible.
I feel like Nintendo have a trend of side scroller after side scroller. You have a good HD console...make some bloody amazing 3D games. It's 2013 man, thats the problem with Nintendo...tradition.
Monolith X was one of the top games of E3 for me. That trailer looks amazing!
gamer42 - I kind of meant it towards Nintendo franchises like Mario and co Mario - Most games so far are Side Scroller Yoshi Yarn - Side Scroller Kirbys Yarn for Wii - Side Scroller Donkey Kong - Side Scroller So much can be done with these franchises, they are all going to look and feel the same in the future.
Well, it's not like a ton of companies are doing 2d scroller recently. I find it kinda refreshing, in a world dominated by 3rd person games, and FPS.
I don't even...I can't image why...When Sony is showing off Killzone and Microsoft is showing off Titanfall Nintendo shows off DK? I know it will be an excellent game and I know I will love it but what happened to trying to cater to the core gamer? There isn't one decent Nintendo published FPS and I have absolutely no idea why.
Nintendo also showed Monoliths game. But you only saw DK?
If DKCR anything to goes by, this game will be awesome for core and none alike. Core doesn't necessarily means bravo alpha team shoot'em up.
DK IS for the core gamer. The previous installment for Wii was insanely difficult at times. I don't think you played it though did you?
hey you wanna play killzone well buy a sony product. you wanna play titanfall well buy microsoft. simple isn't it
I agree with you- to a point. Nintendo said that they wanted to cater to the "cORE"- It would have been great to see another "cORE" like title out there. That being said DK made more $$$ for Retro than a Samus game ever did. So, I understand the switch in priority. (Although I loved Prime and have played everyone). Personally, I also have a concern with too many FPS's on the other consoles too- like Nintendo has so many Platformers.
Yeah that and DK Country Returns sold about 10 million copies.
They heard Killer Instinct was coming and momentarily thought the year was 1994.
We've already had Donkey Kong though not too long ago, fans wanted Metroid. It's not about what YOU want but YOUR fanbase.
Hopefully they are working on a secret AAA new IP because Retro is one of the best devs out there.
Surprise reveal time?
If they ever do a a new Kirby game or a standalone Luigi game in 3D then i'll be happy ;)
Guess we'll have to wait for Metroid... Oh dear.
From the sound of it there were come playability issues with Returns that kept it from being "perfect". They might not feel like they did the best they could've done and want to expand and refine. One positive thing about this reveal is it shows Nintendo doesn't think of DK as a dead franchise. Getting a stellar entry this early in the console life is a sign of support for this venerable IP. The wait for Metroid is long, but will be fruitfull
maybe they needed a break from making metroid ill take this and be happy about it lol looks good
-_- one less grown up game for nintendo
How the f**k does a game = the lack of a game...
Nintendo rules the Platformers like no other. That is one reason people want them to go 3rd Party. It is good to have Retro able to imitate Nintendo-Magic Much like Rare used too. Still, The WiiU needs more MA to Teen rated titles to relate to the "cORE". It would be great for them to have a FPS or a MA Open World. That way they could attract more "cORE" and they can carry the console if the developers continue acting funky. But I am not really Raging against Platformers (I haven't seriously played one in years)- I feel the same way about Microsoft and Sony's overstocked catalouge of Futuristic FPS's. The only ones that stand out IMO are Titan (Mechs) and Destiny (FPS + RPG).
