Cool Prime 4 and new Metroid Ip That's what I like.

Kaneki-Ken2575d ago

Or or an actual Metroid Fusion sequel

MetroidFREAK212573d ago

You do not understand how much I want that over a Prime 4... I would cry and probably die of happiness :p

TheOttomatic912573d ago

@Kaneki-Kun I hope so too, unpopular opinion but I've always enjoyed the 2D Metroid games (and Metroidvania games in general) over the 3D ones. Hell I wouldn't mind a 2.5D title from Retro as that what they have done with DKCR series.

DanteVFenris6662573d ago (Edited 2573d ago )

I thought the metroid community hated fusions? Because of its linearity and loss of metrovania deseign?

Cool concept, but the gameplay wasn't up their with zero mission or super metroid.

Hell Yeah, if they want me back as a customer this is the right move.

nintendo never give us what we want. yeh, we might get 2 metroid games, but it will be something like ...

metroid: prime pinball

play pinball on machines inspired by various plnets in the metroid universe

metroid: samus' style boutique

dress samus in various fashionable outfits, do her hair and makeup

Metroid Prime should be a mainstay.
Retro created a believable world and it needs to continue.

MetroidFREAK212573d ago (Edited 2573d ago )

I absolutely adore the Prime trilogy of games. Some of the finest games I played growing up. Getting Metroid Prime w/ my GC in 2002 (age 11), Metroid Prime 2 on release day in 2004 (age 13) and playing Metroid Prime 3 nearly all the way through in like 3 days in 2007 and then purchasing the game for my birthday in October 07 (age 16)... I grew up with these games. They are a major part of why I love gaming. The worlds Retro managed to create were amazing, and I'd gladly go back and play them over anything else in the world at this moment. I really do think they should create a Prime 4 like how 343 created Halo 4. A new start, new planets, a new threat. Would be awesome to see everything from Samus' eyes again. We are long overdue for a traditional Metroid title, and I feel Retro is our best bet at this for now.

dear lord.. please be true. Can't wait for another entry in the Prime world.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory2574d ago (Edited 2574d ago )

Why wouldn't it be.
Nintendo already talk about there being a 3D and 2D Metroid like year or two ago when asked about the future of Metroid

PhoenixUp2573d ago

Nah Metroid Prime already died at the end of Corruption. There's not much you can legitimately do in that subseries besides beat a dead horse for brand recognition. I'd rather a new Metroid game that takes place after Fusion

Neonridr2573d ago

fair enough. I can totally go with a new story. As long as it is in the same vein as Prime (first person) then I am cool with that. I love the 2D Metroids, but leave that to a smaller studio to handle.

Soplox2575d ago

If Nintendo was inspired by Skyrim on BoTW they should look at Mass Effect Andromeda for Metroid. Of course not the crapass animations.

wonderfulmonkeyman2573d ago

I'd prefer they didn't. The two may both be sci fi, but they couldn't be more different in style outside of the viewpoint and shooting.

Ristul2573d ago

I would rather they take inspiration from Dead Space, make the game a bit creapy and scary, isolating you on a space station or something and have the enemies be more dangerous.

BrandanT2573d ago

Ristful, that setting has been in Metroid before. All of Metroid Fusion practically had Samus isolated on a space station. In Metroid Prime 3, you visit a destroyed space ship.

Ristul2573d ago

BrandanT: Yes, but Metroid have never felt scary, I think they could ad a lot of tension by going that rout. Yes we have been isolated before, but it always felt more lika an adventure then anything close to Dead Space.

remixx1162573d ago

I'd love for them to just stick with what made the first metro is prime one of the greatest games ever.

It's up there with Socom 2, shadow of the colosus, orcarina of time and halo

wonderfulmonkeyman2572d ago (Edited 2572d ago )

Not scary?
Have you ever been cornered by the SA-X in fusion?
It's the closest Nintendo's come in years to Aliens Isolation, for an action game that isn't deliberately horror-based.XD

Ristul2572d ago

wonderfulmonkeyman: I did play fusion, I also played Super Metroid and Prime 1 + 2, and while I loved those games and still do to this day, I never felt scared while playing them. Maybe it's just me ;)

there wasn't much inspiration from Skyrim at all. If anything it was inspired by the original Zelda and they stated Minecraft and Terraria as inspiration.
That being said with Metroid they should look at what their goal was with the original and fully flesh it out. It would be kind of cool if they took inspiration from the amnesia games to add a little tension.

Soplox2573d ago

No. They stated that they took inspiration from Skyrim several times

kevnb2573d ago (Edited 2573d ago )

they didnt actually, they mentioned it once. http://www.zeldainformer.co...
The people that kept mentioning skyrim dont work for nintendo and have nothing to do with the game.
