Welcome to the Official Metroid Thread!

What's next for Metroid:

The 4th entry in the famed Metroid Prime series, following Metroid Prime 3's 2007 release.

It was first announced in Nintendo's E3 2017. Most of us thought the game would be in our hands by now, but unfortunately the original prototype wasn't meeting Nintendo's standards, so development was restarted in January 2019, this time by Retro Studios - the series' original developers.

As of now, we haven't heard many updates, let alone gameplay, which is agonizing for a franchise that barely gets any games as is.

Metroid  is a series of science-fiction action-adventure video games by Nintendo. It chronicles the missions of space-faring bounty hunter Samus Aran, who protects the galaxy from the depredations of the Space Pirates and their attempts to harness the power of the eponymous Metroids. Metroid combines the platforming of Super Mario Bros. and the exploration aspect of The Legend of Zelda with a decidedly darker atmosphere and a greater emphasis on nonlinear gameplay.

August 8th, 2020:

The latest we've heard of Metroid Prime 4 is during Kensuke Tanabe's Paper Mario interview. In it, he mentioned that Nintendo's design philosophy has casual players in mind. He gave the example of the Metroid Prime series as something that looks like it's only for core gamers at a glance, but has beginner friendly elements.

Do you agree? Do you think Metroid Prime 4 should be more casual friendly? How so? Discuss.

Reserved for whenever we got a Multiplayer based game.
*prays Federation Force has similar multiplayer to Hunters*

Open for business :D


"Just for comparison Uncharted 4 was 20x bigger than Splatoon 2. This shows the huge difference between Sony's first-party games and Nintendo's first-party games."

Nice work Proxy! Tagging

My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

See my avatar for what Samus thinks is next for Metroid.

Though for real, Can we not have the first 10 pages filled with FF hate? :P

BTW, you need one of dem badges :D

I'm looking forward to Federation Force, it looks like fun.

I guess that I'll join this, even if I'm not very familiar with Metroid.
