Beyond The Numbers: Why The Time Is Right For An Amazing Metroid Game

It's time for Nintendo to start looking beyond past sales numbers and make the 'Metroid' game everybody wants. (Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Metroid, Metroid Other M, New Super Mario Brothers U, Nintendo, Wii U)

Agreed, I'd love a 2D metroid but 3D is good too. All I hope for is a game better than Other M.

At this point I'd rather that they leave the 2d Metroid games to the handhelds. As much as I like the Prime Trilogy, I think a totally bad ass Metroid in a game play style of Batman AA could do wonders for the bounty hunter.

A new Metroid game would be awesome! I would pre-order that as soon as it was announced. The Wii U was designed perfectly for an awesome Metroid game. Make a Prime 4 or even a whole new trilogy. As long as it is a Metroid game I will buy it! Retro please be making a Metroid game

they should announce a Metroid game at e3 and then promise it is the first in a trilogy! The number of people that would buy a Wii U and/or preorder the game would be huge!

Because Samus is hot. Oh, and the game is good too.

If it got the kinda marketing prime 1 did metroid would easily in the 2-3 million range consistently. The last 2 prime games were released right next to juggernauts halo 2 and 3 and other m received a hefty marketing campaign, but that didnt change the fact that people dodnt really want it.
Prime 1 was sitting up their with mario and zelda on the gamecube, it has the potential to drawn in a different audience than nintendo's usual games.

I think many people forget that the first Prime actually sold very well. It was the fact that the sequels really didn't offer much beyond the first Prime games is probably the biggest reason they didn't sell as good. Prime2 was a great game, but it felt more like Prime 1.5 than a true sequel. Nintendo just needs to do something ground breaking and epic with the franchise to make gamers take notice.

Well you have a hot chick you can make a stellar 1st or 3rd person shooter with in HD. A mature nintendo franchise just sitting on hold with a huge fan base. Take it to the next level and make it happen. Or make another 2D sidescroll and lose the opportunity regardless of how good it is. You are sitting on your Halo, your Tomb Raider, your mature franchise people bash the company for not having. If you pop out with a 2D version I'd be vastly disappointed and doubt I will be alone.

IGN brought up a interesting change for the series that as soon as I heard it I thought wow that would be awesome! If Nintendo let RockSteady have a shot of making their own Metroid game... Seeing what they did with the Batman license, Metroid is a game based on isolation and a solo lead just like Batman and I think they could breathe new life into Samus! They could do this and let Retro Studios work on something new.

Certainly ahead of its time.
