Fans of Metroid: Nintendo hasn’t forgotten you

A lot of gamers were hoping for a new Metroid game to be announced at E3 for either the 3DS or Wii U, and while many analysts said it had a good chance of happening, it appears that Metroid is still in a little hibernation. Fret not though Metroid fans, as Nintendo still has plans for both 2D and 3D iterations of the game in the future.

In an interview with Kotaku Shinya Takahashi responded with this when asked about the future of Metroid:

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 of Metroid games. We have the Prime style of Metroid game and we have the more traditional style of Metroid game. 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.

It will be interesting to see what comes of this statement and if we hear anything about a new Metroid before 2014 ends.
