Next proper Metroid Prime "would likely now be on NX"

Nintendo's next home console Metroid Prime game will now likely not release until the company had launched its next-generation console, codenamed NX.

Speaking to Eurogamer at E3, Metroid Prime series producer Kensuke Tanabe said that due to the amount of content such a game would require, it would probably take several years to develop.

"If we started for Wii U now, it would likely take three years or so. So it would likely now be on Nintendo's NX console," he said.

Zelda is moving to U/NX dont kid yourself. It is going to be like twilight princess. Their own info graphic only showed one game in the wii u category for 2016.
Metriod is not started
Mario Gallexy is not comming
SMT x FE hasnt started translation holiday 2016 at best
Devils Third not comming to the West.

What are those other games lego? Skylanders? A year old Horror game? Just Dance? Guitar hero? Another Nintendo Platformer? All shity ports to boot

Btw I listed all anounced games in that list have fun playing with your amiibo the onlything nintendo put their efforts into.

Are you dense?
Nintendo said flat out that it's STILL COMING TO WII U, and has said NOTHING about it being on NX.
You're in denial, get over it!

Also, Devil's Third IS CONFIRMED to be releasing in Europe and given its place in past stateside Directs, the stateside release isn't far off.

Metroid Prime's producer wants to hold it for the NX's release, which will strengthen it's starting lineup no matter how you spin it.

People have been wanting a new Fatal Frame regardless of what you think of it, same for Yoshi, Mario Maker is one of the highest anticipated titles of the remainder of the year thanks to its showing at The NWC's, and no one in their right mind actually gives a damn about third party multiplats on Wii U because third parties don't want our money; they can't pull off a good port on it to save their lives, they've proven it 9 times out of 10.

You didn't listen to jack: everything went right through your head, in one ear and out the other.
You ignored and discounted all of it because you hate Nintendo, and now you're just taking the opportunity to troll people here.

Get back under the bridge.

Wii U and N3ds are my main systems. They did not plan well this gen (wii u). I have been waiting sence launch, when I bought both consoles, for thier plan for wii u. What games did they have planned? Pikmin, 3d world, looks like they Frankensteined starfox 2 and a tech demo together last year, Mario Maker shows how mutch effort they put into NSMBU, xenoblade and smt x fe. My N3ds rocks and continues to put out gems. My wii u however, I belive has show its cards. Oh well at least I can Splat and Smash.

This disappoints me greatly. To know that they're not even working on a triple A Metroid game must mean Retro is doing another title.

"If we started for Wii U now, it would likely take three years or so."

What have they been doing since the Wii U launched then?

That's just it; they've kept it under wraps.
People have been assuming that the Wii U game they've been working on was Metroid, without much basis other than past works.
With Prime 4 now slated for the NX (Which, on a positive note, may mean the NX could launch with the game, which would be giving it a stronger starting first party title than Nintendo Land was), this means that Retro's Wii U game is once again a toss-up.

It might even be a new IP.

So Metroid Prime is AAA Metroid game not 2D Metroid. OK
