Interesting info - Metroid 5 concludes the "Samus and Metroid Saga". Fresh start next game.

Given that this one took 19 years, I'm not thinking about the next game just yet

It's prolly gonna take me 15 hours to complete and I wanna savour every freaking last drop of it !

15 hours? You don't play Metroid to beat. You play to master.

The only Metroid game I've really liked is the first one, but I'm willing to give this one a shot. It has potential.

Really? Have you played Super and Fusion? Those games are like the original but with icing all over them, lol

I'm skeptical of Mercury Steam handling Metroid Fucking 5, to be honest. Samus Returns wasn't good at all. 

Visuals are fine but they seem... bland, the aesthetic doesn't convince me. I don't know, I think there must be a way to make Metroid look amazing in 2021 on Switch's hardware. 



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.

Eh. Samus Returns didn't feel very technical and this looks a lot like it, not sure there'll be much to master. Hopefully there is.

Edit: either way I really like that they went out of their way to say this was an ending to the story. Whenever I daydreamed about Metroid 5, I always thought of it as the last entry. Just feels like the story shouldn't keep going after this, really. Of course eventually we'll all want a Metroid 6, but still.



Very cool announcement. Looks like Samus Returns gameplay meets the horror aspects of Fusion, Both the 5 and the Dread titles are pretty big.

One thing is so far it looks like the least colorful Metroid game since 2 on the black and white Gameboy. I'm hoping for more diverse and colorful environments in the final game.

Hey guys, what does a Metroid fan feel when they hear Prime 4 is still in development?

Dread.

:D

I sentence you to being chased by an E.M.M.I. for the rest of your life for such a mean, mean joke.

I mean, visuals go could crazier when you get to the last areas of the game we don't know yet. 

Even then, it's fine to see them not trying to replicate the same aesthetic than the other games. Make them feel distinct

Now that I've seen it during the Treehouse segment I'm liking the aesthetics a lot more. I like how seamlessly it zooms out after close-ups and the detail in the backgrounds such as creatures running around looks good. So great that we finally got this game.
