Metroid Prime Devs Eye 360, PS3 for Future Games - EA Signs Former 'Metroid Prime' Dev

Three of the key developers behind Nintendo's popular Metroid Prime series recently jumped ship to form a new development studio that will be dedicated to creating games for all three platforms under a publishing deal with Electronic Arts, the publisher announced today.

In a recent interview with Kotaku, Pacini said that the trio formed the new company some time in April and signed their exclusive publishing deal with EA two to three months later.

Under their current contract with Electronic Arts, Armature wouldn't be able to develop a Metroid Prime game for Nintendo. Not that that means they've lost interest in the franchise they helped revive.

"Personally, I would love to work on another Metroid game," said Keller. "I have been in love with Metroid for years. We had a chance to recreate a game that was created way back when. That was awesome."

The story is too old to be commented.

Lol. Yea to me this is a big deal too. I love the first Metroid Prime game and the series.

Personally I think the topic should be renamed. I think the following is the most interesting quote in the article, as many people speculated many of the key members that left Retro did so because they didn't want to make another Metroid game: "Personally, I would love to work on another Metroid game," said Keller. "I have been in love with Metroid for years. We had a chance to recreate a game that was created way back when. That was awesome."

Metroid Prime had incredible atmosphere, design, and graphics on under-powered consoles such as the Wii and the GameCube....I can only imagine what kind of beauty we'd see in a Metroid Prime game on the 360 / PS3.

I have been hoping for this for a long time, the MP series was easily some of the most atmospheric game out there, Bioshock like. If they could pull of MP3 on Wii then their 360/PS3 games will blow your mind.
