The action-adventure video game, Metroid (1986) received a re-released for the Game Boy Advance in October 2004, and for the Wii in July 2007/2008.
It was produced by Gunpei Yokoi, directed by Satoru Okada, Yoshio Sakamoto, and music composed by Hirokazu Tanaka.
It’s been a long time since we heard anything about a new Metroid game, and until recently we were hoping for a announcement at E3 but that didn’t happen and now Nintendo gives us hope.
In an interview with Kotaku, Nintendo Software Planning & Development group’s, Shinya Takahashi was asked about Metroid game, he replied: “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.”
General Manager of Nintendo EAD, Shigeru Miyamoto adds, I have the New Super Mario Bros. series [for 2D], so I like Prime. I think there’s still a lot of new things that could be done with the Prime series.”
