There is a bounty on the Wii U – Ideas for Metroid Wii U game


I can empathize with the commiserations of thousands of Nintendo fans with the news that retro’s their first Wii U game is Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze and not a Metroid game. Let me get this straight, I am not downplaying Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze and the efforts of Retro. I am genuinely excited for Donkey Kong (day one purchase) – but let’s be honest here, we all wanted to see Metroid in HD. Our wait for a HD Metroid will have to be longer. That said, I am confident Nintendo is working on the game or at the very least – has solid plans to bring one over to the Wii U.

Wow, the author really thought out most, if not all of the possibilities. It really has me riled up for the next Metroid game. Prime 3 is still one of the best FPS out there. It was everything that it's predecessors were not.

I heard that Retro could be making the next StarFox game, which would be absolutely fantabulous.

Let's hope we see both of these games come out sooner rather than later.

As much as I love the Metroid series and enjoyed the Prime games within the series I feel Prime 3 was the weakest out of them all, it felt slightly watered down.

I honestly cant wait for another Metroid game on WiiU I have been a massive fan since Super Metroid but with the performance of Other M I dont think Nintendo will bother with it for a while.

At the 25th Anniversary of Metroid Nintendo didnt even acknowledge the series.

I would love for a 2D.5 style Metroid just like Shadow Complex. That is what I really want from Metroid, if not then maybe a God of War style play with Castlevania Lords of Shadows type of level layout.

I just don't want a FPS Metroid. I know I'm in the minority but I was not a fan of the Prime series.

Metroid Wii U should be like this. I don't know how it would work, but if they could make it work, that would be great.

I am waiting for it. Metroid prime could be the killer app if done right for the Wii U.

We need a new Metroid Prime style game to show what the Wii U is capable of graphics-wise just like MP1 was for the Gamecube. That game still holds up today.
