Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime says just enough to make Nintendo Fans think we'll see a Metroid announcement within the year
Don't want any hints. Want an announcement and a release date.
Metroid will be amazing with the Switch's HD rumble feature. Charing your shot, launching missiles, double jumps, her trademarked ball morphing - it'll be an enjoyable experience.
Didn't even think of that, awesome.
I'm sure the pron industry would find a great use for the HD Rumble ;)
I want Metroid, Luigi's Mansion and a Mario Party stat!
Will it be out for the Switch? Or do gamers have to wait for the next console.. Switches.
With Zelda at the launch, I think they kept games hidden so as not to cannabalize Zelda sales and obviously for E3. I think Metroid would be at E3 !!
Totally agree. Don't hint give us an new entry maybe even something that continues the story after fusion.
Retro Studios only please
The lead programmer, art designer and directors of the Metroid Prime series no longer work at Retro, which is why 2007 is the last time we've seen a proper game.
I hope it has good online.
I hope it has a 30 hour campaign and NO online
Why not BOTH
@WOLFofWALLSTREET Wasted time and resources.
Eh, I would rather it not have MP in general... And for it to be 2D side scrolling like the orginal games.
Metroid doesn't need multiplayer...
Metroid Prime Hunters had a decent MP despite the limitations of the DS. If done right by Nintendo,it could be the next MP Nintendo hit.
Wolf, Fair. :) Both it is. My initial thing is I really like how Metroid Prime controlled. It didn't really move like a shooter it kind of actually have Resident Evil 4 style tank controls but for some reason in first person at work so well. That doesn't transition to online play at all. I kind of wish they would have more platforming by having a third person perspective Metroid that's not that garbage like Other M. Sort of in the vein of how Platinum Games would make it. I think that would also be really cool.
Metroid Prime Federation Force coming to switch ZOMG!!!!!
I bet its Metroid Federation Force 2 knowing its Nintendo. Jokes aside, if that did end up being true, that would be the biggest slap in the face for everyone. But personally, I would love to see a western studio take on Metroid besides Retro Studios, I bet someone could do its series justice that it deserves.
Nintendo has no respect for Metroid so I would not be surprised if they screw it again.
I want an old school side scroller , but probably 3d
I would like metroid prime 4 but id be perfectly fine with a 2d metroid... Isnt it crazy that its been years since a proper metroid game you would have thought nintendo had one slated to come out on the wiiu but pushed it for dev on the switch... But thats not the case because if that was true nintendo would had at least a teaser trailer for us metroid fans!!! Nukacola: It doesnt have to be 30 hours to be amazing... Super metroid is my fav in the series and i can beat it in under 3 hours! Blu3 puls3: Metroid other m was the biggest slap to my face. I would love to see nintendo collaborate with other great studios to get it done.
I sure hope so...
We need a new one. So it might finally happen this time?
About time! Can't wait for e3
Don't think Nintendo is in any position to try and bait people with "hints". lol Geeez... get your heads out of your a**es Nintendo.
Mario, Metroid, Zelda. Mario, Metroid, Zelda. Mario, Metroid, Zelda. Mario, Metroid, Zelda. Mario, Metroid, Zelda. Mario, Metroid, Zelda.
This is not enough. For all we know it could be another Federation soldiers like the last one. It is not enough that is a Metroid game. It must be a serious and real Metroid game. Not a Metroid pinball or something like that.
I want Good sidescrolling Super Metroid 2 follow by Sidescrolling Castlevainia 5 ,Contra 5 That would make me buy the Switch day one.
As cool as the prime series was, i prefer the side scrolling metroid games much more.. A great 2.5D version that smokes team ninjas efforts would be great.. Ill take another prime game but i'd be more stoked for the original formula.. Sonic team is doing both.. Why cant nintendo?
Gonna be hard to outdo Team Battleclash anyway. I'm still waiting for the day.
Just keep Sakamoto far, far away from it. Other M was a bust.
