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...
