Nintendo's latest Metroid outing suffers a sad slump out the gates
Supply and demand... no one asked for this.. give people what they want (Metroid Prime), they'll buy it. No idea why that's so hard to get. Glad this flopped, Nintendo will Lear--- oh wait, they never learn do they. >_>
I just hope Nintendo hasn't hinged the success of the franchise on this outing.
That would be delusional beyond redemption.
I dunno. Remember when Star Fox 64 3D launched? Nintendo made a statement that if that game didn't sell well, they wouldn't bother with a sequel. We did get one and ... yeah. The future of Metroid ain't looking too bright
Metroid is my favorite nintendo game. Prime on GC was one of the best games ever. Could you imagine a world where Nintendo games actually mature it at the same rate as the gamers. Metroid should have been on the scale of Mass Effect.
well it plays just like prime does, control wise at least. Though, it's not a metroid in the traditonal sense, it's still a fun game nethertheless.
I don't think the lack of sales is a sleight against the game itself. I saw a heap of positive reviews. Me thinks a mixture of bad marketing and fan dissension is at play.
Lets try with Samus again,Nintendo.
It baffles me they threw this out after the 30th anniversary and didn't see this negative reaction coming.
But does anyone believe that Nintendo understands why the game flopped?
Nintendo doesn't understand much about gaming at all anymore. They're lost in their own little world, with only gimmicks, cheap hardware, and mediocre games to show for it.
That's the sad thing. They are going to believe that there is no interest on the Metroid franchise which is totally wrong.
I think Zelda BotW is a step in the right direction for Nintendo. I hope the rest of their franchises can follow suit.
good, nobody asked for that thing anyways. It was an insult to metroid fans
I got a GC for Metroid Prime, one of my all time favouries. They did it with Starfox too. Such a shame. The new Zelda looks promising though.
I am really glad to hear this because I am tire to see Nintendo disrespecting Metroid. Are you a Konami now Nintendo? I want a proper, mature serious Metroid game. Nintendo should drop the console business and focus on making software on multiplatform. From what I heard, the NX is going to be another fiasco and those who love Nintendo franchises are forced to see this shipwreck. Free the games we love and make them available multiplatform!
I've got a friend who will buy Nintendo regardless... Your observations are just going to fall on deaf ears.
Im enjoying it. Its a fun co-op game. People should just play it for what it is. A fun co-op side game.
Gamers: "We want a real metroid game!" Nintendo: "Here's a shitty spinoff nobody wanted" Gamers: "nope". Nintendo: "DMCA Fan games!!! And no more metroid games ever now".
