Miyamoto: Retro Given "Very High Priority" Among Potential Studios To Work On Next Metroid

Posted on Friday, September 20 @ 14:50:07 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Despite the fact that Nintendo's next-gen console has been out for quite some time now, we still have yet to hear about a new Metroid game. Considering how important it is to the Nintendo brand, one would think it's only a matter of time before Samus steps into the world of high definition on Wii U. But with Retro currently assigned to the Donkey Kong Country series, many (including myself) have grown worried.

That all changes now, as Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto recently discussed the future of both Retro Studios and the Metroid series, hinting at the likelihood of another Retro-developed title starring the iconic space-traveling bounty hunter.

Speaking to Official Nintendo Magazine (via Nintendo Insider) Miyamoto explained:

Retro is a very capable studio and can design a lot of different types of game and I know that because I produced Metroid Prime. I think Retro has really come to a point at which it's possible for it to have multiple lines running at the same time and having different projects in development. I totally think there are possibilities to see different projects from Retro in the future.

Certainly the Metroid franchise is one that, when you talk about really bringing the world to life, we feel that Metroid and the characters established are really important for Nintendo. So important that they were included, obviously, in Nintendo Land.

I definitely think it's a franchise that we value and we certainly want to see what we can do with it in the future. And, obviously, Retro is a very high priority in terms of the potential team that would be considered for working on a Metroid game.

Retro Studio's latest title, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, is set to launch on December 6th, exclusively for Wii U. Here's to hoping their next game is Metroid Prime 4 with a release date sometime in the not too distant future. Seriously, my aching heart can't take the wait.
