During E3, a lot of fans went in thinking we would see a new Metroid game revealed for the Wii U. Yes, Other M wasn’t a huge success, but people still love Samus and it’s easy to see that the franchise would be perfect for Nintendo’s upcoming platform.
It seems that fans are not the only ones with Samus on the brain though, as Miyamoto recently made a statement to IGN on how Metroid would be perfect for the Wii U.
“With Metroid it’s very easy to imagine some interesting implementation for Wii U,” Miyamoto mentioned. “I think that having another screen with the gyro built in really gives you a lot of interesting opportunities for development, and we can bring a lot of our games to life in a completely unique way with that.”
Another name mentioned during the interview was Star Fox for the Wii U, but no further details were given. I personally would love to see Metroid on the Wii U and there isn’t much of a doubt that if done right, it would be a huge seller for Nintendo. Of course, these are just name drops as of now, meaning if a Metroid game were to come, it would be at least a couple years away (unless Ninty already has it in the oven).
