GDC: Former Castlevania Producer Would Love to Work on Metroid

Earlier this week, former Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi left Konami to start his own development studio. In a statement, Igarashi told IGN, "I've decided to break out on my own to have the freedom to make the kind of games I really want to make -- the same kind I think fans of my past games want as well."

IGN caught up with Igarashi and we asked, given his experience with making 2D action games, would he consider working with Nintendo to revive the Metroid series?

Oh please Nintendo hire this guy now!

Nintendo should scoop this guy up. Tons of experience, and nintendo needs more small devs. Would be cool if they kicked off a new metroid trilogy like they did prime, have a handheld game on the side like fusion.

This guy is literally saying "Hire me, Nintendo!". Come on, Iwata, don't let this chance slip. The guy knows of metroidvanias (as he's helped define the genre, lol). This is a golden opportunity.

Doing a 2D is fine.
I would rather Bungie-
-who has expressed a love for the franchise at a passed E3 (&love for Nintendo see walk-thru of their studios and they have Nintendo Swag Everywhere)-
-do a FPS Centered 3D Metroid.
