According to popular Nintendo YouTuber, SuperMetalDave64, two new Metroid games are currently deep into development for Nintendo Switch, with at least one being highly likely to be shown at E3.
Cool Prime 4 and new Metroid Ip That's what I like.
Or or an actual Metroid Fusion sequel
You do not understand how much I want that over a Prime 4... I would cry and probably die of happiness :p
@Kaneki-Kun I hope so too, unpopular opinion but I've always enjoyed the 2D Metroid games (and Metroidvania games in general) over the 3D ones. Hell I wouldn't mind a 2.5D title from Retro as that what they have done with DKCR series.
I thought the metroid community hated fusions? Because of its linearity and loss of metrovania deseign? Cool concept, but the gameplay wasn't up their with zero mission or super metroid.
Hell Yeah, if they want me back as a customer this is the right move.
nintendo never give us what we want. yeh, we might get 2 metroid games, but it will be something like ... metroid: prime pinball play pinball on machines inspired by various plnets in the metroid universe metroid: samus' style boutique dress samus in various fashionable outfits, do her hair and makeup
Metroid Prime should be a mainstay. Retro created a believable world and it needs to continue.
I absolutely adore the Prime trilogy of games. Some of the finest games I played growing up. Getting Metroid Prime w/ my GC in 2002 (age 11), Metroid Prime 2 on release day in 2004 (age 13) and playing Metroid Prime 3 nearly all the way through in like 3 days in 2007 and then purchasing the game for my birthday in October 07 (age 16)... I grew up with these games. They are a major part of why I love gaming. The worlds Retro managed to create were amazing, and I'd gladly go back and play them over anything else in the world at this moment. I really do think they should create a Prime 4 like how 343 created Halo 4. A new start, new planets, a new threat. Would be awesome to see everything from Samus' eyes again. We are long overdue for a traditional Metroid title, and I feel Retro is our best bet at this for now.
My pants just got tight. I will go buy a Switch for a new Metroid.
dear lord.. please be true. Can't wait for another entry in the Prime world.
Why wouldn't it be. Nintendo already talk about there being a 3D and 2D Metroid like year or two ago when asked about the future of Metroid https://www.gamespot.com/ar...
Nah Metroid Prime already died at the end of Corruption. There's not much you can legitimately do in that subseries besides beat a dead horse for brand recognition. I'd rather a new Metroid game that takes place after Fusion
fair enough. I can totally go with a new story. As long as it is in the same vein as Prime (first person) then I am cool with that. I love the 2D Metroids, but leave that to a smaller studio to handle.
That would be awesome!
If Nintendo was inspired by Skyrim on BoTW they should look at Mass Effect Andromeda for Metroid. Of course not the crapass animations.
I'd prefer they didn't. The two may both be sci fi, but they couldn't be more different in style outside of the viewpoint and shooting.
I would rather they take inspiration from Dead Space, make the game a bit creapy and scary, isolating you on a space station or something and have the enemies be more dangerous.
Ristful, that setting has been in Metroid before. All of Metroid Fusion practically had Samus isolated on a space station. In Metroid Prime 3, you visit a destroyed space ship.
BrandanT: Yes, but Metroid have never felt scary, I think they could ad a lot of tension by going that rout. Yes we have been isolated before, but it always felt more lika an adventure then anything close to Dead Space.
I'd love for them to just stick with what made the first metro is prime one of the greatest games ever. It's up there with Socom 2, shadow of the colosus, orcarina of time and halo
@Ristul Not scary? Have you ever been cornered by the SA-X in fusion? It's the closest Nintendo's come in years to Aliens Isolation, for an action game that isn't deliberately horror-based.XD
wonderfulmonkeyman: I did play fusion, I also played Super Metroid and Prime 1 + 2, and while I loved those games and still do to this day, I never felt scared while playing them. Maybe it's just me ;)
Why would they want to take inspiration from those games, when they should just take inspiration from the original Prime games, which, to this day, are still absolute masterpieces as far as game design goes. Metroid is, and always should be, its own thing. Other games should be inspired by it, not the other way around.
Well, I think they should take inspiration from Bioshock, Doom, and Dead Space. Prime is fantastic, but it IS fifteen years old and most of the original staff are gone. I don't think they should aim for a direct Prime sequel. They should make a spiritual successor that takes what made Prime great and bring it into the modern era, sort of like how Breath of the Wild took what made Zelda great and took it into the modern era by bringing in elements of other popular RPGs.
You take inspiration from others not yourself right? And those games are damn old and outdated. And by outdated I meant that theres nothing in they that hasnt been improved in other games.
there wasn't much inspiration from Skyrim at all. If anything it was inspired by the original Zelda and they stated Minecraft and Terraria as inspiration. That being said with Metroid they should look at what their goal was with the original and fully flesh it out. It would be kind of cool if they took inspiration from the amnesia games to add a little tension.
No. They stated that they took inspiration from Skyrim several times
they didnt actually, they mentioned it once. http://www.zeldainformer.co... The people that kept mentioning skyrim dont work for nintendo and have nothing to do with the game.
Id love if you could fly Samus ship at a similar level to Elite Dangerous, but with like just a few planets.
That's exactly what would be great to add.
I like the idea, kinda like how ratchet and clank a crack in time let you fly your ship manually to reach other planets while allowing you to detour to small asteroids, moons and side planers. Metroid could benefit adding that to their core design.
yh but with the full on realism of Elite Dangerous, which is probably the best space flight game.
I've never played elite dangerous, tho sadly I must confess I did play no man's sky...... I'm depressed now.
Has SMD64 gotten anything right ever?
nope. He was entirely wrong about the Switch before it was revealed and was salty about it.
That's good to know.Personality, I think nintendo are making a 2D metriod game that has the same level(or greater) of richness and detail as Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. The other Metriod game is going to be another 3D Prime game.
Would be great if they released a 2D and 3D one close together like they did with prime and fusion, and prime 2 and zero mission.
Was thinking the same thing
lmao not this clown again. Not worth a news story.
Finally...it only took them an entire gen
Hope one is Prime 4 and the other one is the Prime collection for the Switch.
Ill believe it when i see it... neither one of them better be federation force 2 and one of them better be metroid prime 4 😭. A 2d game that took place before or after 1, 2, or 3 (super metroid) would stroke my nintendo nostology pretty decently.
One is Federation Force 2. The other is Other M 2.
Doubtful but wouldnt suprise me.
Metroid Prime Pinball 2, anyone? 😂
If - serius Metroid game - Mature theme and art work (no cartoonish) Then I will finally have a reason to buy a Switch
I pray to god they finally continue he storyline after Fusion where Samus is part Metroid and against the Federation and not some BS MP4
Would be very nice if true. Been too long since Nintendo delivered a good solid Metroid game. Last one was Metriod Prime 3 and that came out 10 years ago.
Other M was "solid". Not amazing like the Prime games, but still a good game by itself.
Other M wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. The main problem was the personality for Samus in the story. She was suppose to be a badass bounty hunter, but in other M she was just being someone's b***h. She didn't give herself much of any orders. Always followed Adam cause *reasons*. She had access to all these powers but had to get permission to use them???? Uegh. The gameplay was alright, if a bit twitchy with the first-person aiming part. But it had potential to be better.
Working on two metriods is Intresting. I can see working on a metriod prime but also see them working on a spinoff multiplayer version of metriod. More like death match ctf etc since retro seems to have interest in it with ala metriod prime 2. It would work well with the switch since they are prob going to push system link mode with the system.
Nintendo please... I need these
The only Nintendo franchise I still love. I'll wait for reviews this time, I bought a wii for 'Other M' and it was such a waste of money
I hope one of them is 2D.
This means absolutely nothing, stemming from SMD.
I've heard rumors of a more horror themed metroid being in development and I love that idea. It could still be very metroid in every aspect but just add in more tension and creepiness. All the old bosses and enemies would easily slide right into a horror game.
I know I'm in the minority, but I really enjoyed Other M.
Me too :)
This has caught my curiosity...hope it's semi true...would.be cool to see an all new 3d Metroid game that has nothing to do with prime....I feel the trilogy ended with 3
If this turns out to be true. I'm getting a Switch.
I'm guessing one for the Switch and the other for the 3DS/2DS, I just hope neither are related to federation force in any shape or form. Edit: *facepalm* clearly article says both games are for the Switch but I reiterate that neither should be a follow up of Federation Force
I want a 2D Metroid on Switch so bad! Super Metroid is still by far the superior entry in the series, with Fusion a close second. I'm not really a fan of the Prime series though.
