Nintendo: Metroid is ‘an important franchise for us’

Nintendo’s announcement of Metroid Prime 4 — with just a title screen during its E3 2017 Spotlight presentation — was at first exhilarating for fans of the first-person version of the franchise. That was until they saw how little information about the game was available.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yet it took them how long to make Metroid 4...even now it's only a logo on a screen. If it was so important it would have been a launch title at least or at the end of this year.

Nintendo already made Metroid 4 in 2002, it's called Metroid Fusion

Still...2002. Owch

15 years later...

The studio responsible for Metroid Prime were also busy with Donkey Kong though.

Of course the first comment is negative. Man I was stoked with just the logo in knowing that a new metroid is in the works. I personally thought they might not make a new one since Prime wasn't a big seller.

So? They are doing it now.
So sick of hearing people bitching and moaning about not getting Metroid. You're getting two goddamn games ffs!

Samus doesn't quite pay the bills over at the big N like many would suggest. Some people just like to complain even after getting what they wanted .

If you're a Metroid fan you should be happy they aren't letting it die.

I bet it is, that's why federation force was released under the Metroid Prime label right Nintendo?

PhoenixUp370d ago

Still doesn't excuse that Federation Force crap.

Metroid Prime 3 Corruption came out in 2007 and Metroid Other M in 2010 ... It will be 7 years not 15 and yes 10 coz MOM didn't feel fully like a Metroid game ... Samus Returns is out this year

Correction: "Metroid Prime is an important series to us because we know the fans will pay for it."

Just like any other franchise in existence. What's your point?
