The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Rumor: Metroid Wii U To Run On Unreal Engine 3

Posted on Thursday, April 26 @ 11:55:07 PST by Alex_Osborn

I don't know about you, but I'm approaching Nintendo's Wii U with cautious pessimism optimism. We know that the console's core first party titles will be great, but will the new hardware really be able to compete against the upcoming wave of next-gen systems? Probably not, but if they've got Retro Studios making an HD title set in the Metroid universe that looks anything like the Mass Effect 2/Unreal Tournament III mod pictured above, I'm sold.

That is why the latest rumor that comes from French gaming site Nintendotown has me giddy like a little schoolgirl. Based on what we can understand from the translation, it looks like the next Metroid title is currently in development for the Wii U and will run on Epic's Unreal Engine 3. Additionally, a tech demo of the game was reportedly shown by Metroid Prime developer Retro Studios.

Alongside this rumor, two other interesting bits of information were provided, including the fact that Nintendo is planning to really push online multimedia content for the Wii U, as well as integrating the console's operating system with that of the Android OS. Sounds a bit farfetched, I know.

Fortunately we've only got another month or so left until we find out exactly what the Big N is planning.
