It has been rumored that Wii U’s Metroid is in development by Retro Studios.
Here's hoping it's a 2d.5 type of game similar to Shadow complex. Maybe even a third person action/exploration would be welcomed. But I wasn't a fan of the Prime series, didn't like the first person view. Anyways, can't wait to see what they have in store for the WiiU.
Haha, yeah, I don't think so. I want a straight up new Metroid series continuing from Metroid Prime.
did you like other M? It wasnt as much first person like the prime series. I could take the series either way. I will say though, after growing up with metroid the way it started, when the first prime came out i was utterly blown away with how they managed to capture the felling of being inside the suit. Interesting to see how they use the tablet.
I never did play Other M. I heard it wasn't so good. I should gamefly it though and see for my self. Nothing beats Super Metroid, one of the best SNES games ever.
IMHO, Super Metroid is still the best Metroid game in the entire series. The music, although technically simplistic in comparison to scores from the Prime trilogy, was the most atmospheric, original, and enjoyable; the art style was attractive and helped to facilitate the notion of being alone throughout the game; and the gameplay was precisely what I would like in every 2D iteration. If Retro really is working on the next Metroid, I'm curious to see what they believe is the best direction for the series while taking into consideration everything that was unenjoyable/ill received with Other M (and hopefully pay some well-implemented homage to Super Metroid as well).
"I never did play Other M. I heard it wasn't so good." I wish people would just try games out for themselves ( yes you said you will "gamefly it ). But you are also giving the impression that you havn't tried it because people "complain "about it. I for one, enjoyed the game regardless of the flaws. Team Ninja did a refreshingly well job.
this is one of the games that will shine with the Wii U controller if done right
i want a prime game, in both sense of the word.
Either this or Zelda. If it's Metroid, I'd like a 2D or 2.5 sidescroller Man...if Retro did Zelda...
metroid prime 4 with a proper online component? metroid deathmatch, maps designed with the ball rolling in mind, would be amazing.
I heard they went down hill from when they were created. 1-#1 2-#2 3-#3 from what I have been told.
True! But I think to be fair by the time 3 came out the graphics tech was severely outdated and this stunted retro's creativity, Metroid prime with wii u graphics will be epic! Metroid prime is my no.2 game of all time!
I would have to say I somewhat agree. Prime 1 was awesome Prime 2 was ok, but a bit dry Prime 3 was an excellent effort, but for me, it ALMOST didnt feel like a Metroid game. ALMOST. Prime 4 would be great, but I would love to see what Retro could do with a side-scrolling Metroid
The wii u will be AWESOME! I can not wait to this year e3 2012 for Metroid news or pics...
Yes! Especially f-zero that game was amazing on the cube!
If Starfox and F-Zero come back, I'm sold. Those franchises have so much potential on current technology.
Metroid prime alike, ZAT WOULD BE WONDEFULLLL. It's really not my thing to say but I would like to see a death match metroid multiplayer mode.
Though I have a strange feeling that it is Star Fox (4 player co-op online, using the Wii U pad's camera to communicate with each other [via 3DS version]).
Metroid other M is a fantastic game all you people hatin' on it are missing out. I hope this new installment is similar if not I'll still play it.
I’d rather they do Zelda. I loved Skyward Sword, but I think Retro would completely revitalize it. I want all Nintendo development teams to switch IP’s around. Generates creativity and gives all the franchises a nice refresh. Oh, and a new IP or two would be nice.
As much as I want a new Metroid from Retro ......there is 0 evidence to make a claim that they are developing a new one at this time. Last time we heard from Retro we were told they are working on a game everyone wants. I believe it to be a new Starfox because a new Starfox is way overdue. If not, I could see them doing a new F-Zero but these are just my guesses. I wanted them to do a home console version of Kid Icarus, but I doubt that will happen now that the 3DS version is coming out soon :/ But no matter what title it is, I pretty much assume we will see (it/they) at E3.
it would be EXCELLENT if RETRO studio develope SUPER METROID from SNES days along with CONTRA,R-TYPE,GRADIUS,ENHANDLE R for the wii-U
the only reason that i want ta wii u!!!
Awesome.If there's one series I love from Nintendo,it's Metroid.Haven't liked any Nintendo developed title on the Wii except Metroid 3:Corruption.This is all the confirmation I need to buy a Wii U.
