Nintendo Developer Hints at Metroid Wii U

Good news, I hope the game keeps the other M kind of feeling... The VA was weak, but everything else was amazing...

Whatever they do, I will be happy. But a new adventure with new villains etc would be best, and FP Prime style will probably make more people buy the game these days.



Currently Playing: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, Professor Layton and the Curious Village

Anticipating: Xenoblade, The Last Story, Mario Kart 7, Rayman Origins, Zelda SS, Crush3D, Tales of the Abyss 3DS, MGS:Snake Eater 3DS, RE:Revelations, Time Travellers, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, Luigi's Mansion 2, MH TriG, DQ Monsters, Heroes of Ruin

Other M sounded good on paper, it was just the controls that let it down. Maybe that U controller can fix that.

If they go full 2D, it would need to be like NSMBWii in that is a wholly different game than the previous Metroids.

That would mean that it would be a true sequel to Super Metroid and who honestly wants something like that?

lol I know quite of few people... including us.

Apparently not here on VGC. Our comments on the Metroid editorial are at the bottom of the barrel. Apparently a lot of people loved Metroid: Other M, moreso than Super Metroid.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

If it's Metroid Other M 2, given the sales, Nintendo would finally have gone insane (defined as, no longer interested in making money).

A 2D Metroid would take them a third of the time to make with fewer people and likely sell more.

Can't see why. Prime was the best selling game in the series by far.

(I mean, the first one likely sold a lot too, but it has been, well, 25 years since it)

Let's assume another Prime game would sell about 2m. A 2D Metroid would sell about 1m judging from Fusion. But the 2D one would cost much less to make so I think they could make more profit from it overall and also need to commit fewer resources that they could use on other games.

While I enjoyed MoM... it definitely wasn't better than SM.

However, I think more people liked the Prime series than the 2D classic Metroid series and that is the real opposition.

This can only be the case for the Nintendo 64 kids, because fans of the Metroid series on the whole wouldn't mind getting another Super Metroid.

I am tired of Metroid LOL. I am not kidding either!

Why does Nintendo keep focusing on Metroid? Mario is easy to understand because it sells a lot and is Nintendo's mascot but why Metroid?

Ever since Metroid Prime and Fusion in 2002 its been non stop Metroid.

They're probably compensating for completely fucking ditching the franchise for eight years. (1994-2002)
