I'm sure there are a number ofMetroidfans who were disappointed by the lack of news regarding Nintendo's sci-fi franchise at this year's Los Angeles-based gaming expo. The Big N's Digital Event came and went without even so much as a tease of a new title staring Samus Aran.
But don't fret,Metroidfans! Nintendo intends to continue making games set within its beloved sci-fiuniverse, both in 2D and 3D. In an interview withKotaku, Nintendo'sShinya Takahashi made it clear that moreMetroid is coming... eventually, saying:
So it has been a while since we released the last one and we're having discussions internally about what we can do next. So at this point we have two different types ofMetroidgames. We have thePrimestyle ofMetroidgame and we have the more traditional style ofMetroidgame. We feel that we do need to take care of both of these styles of play. And the hope is that at some point in the near future we'll be able to share something about them.Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto also chimed in, expressing a particular interest in making another Prime-esque title. "...I likePrime. I think there's still a lot of new things that could be done with thePrimeseries," he said.
What would you like to see next for the franchise? A new 2D title or something more in the vein ofMetroid Prime?
