Tons of reports popping up saying the WiiU version has been delayed at the very least, possibly pending cancellation.

Not really surprising considering the horrible WiiU hardware and software sales. At best it's now just going to be another late port. At worst it's just not coming at all, like most other third party games.

Actually I'm kinda surprised this is even considered new news here. Apparently it's been known for a couple weeks now.

Haven't seen a GameFAQs topic about it though. I wonder why?

The truly said thing about this is if it has been delayed people are going to pick it up on 360/PS3/PC first. That's going to make the WiiU sales terrible. And if it gets released on those other platforms and people say the game is bad? That's going to make the WiiU version sell even worse.

And all that is going to snowball into developers saying 3rd party games on Nintendo console don't sell, giving them an excuse not to release any more.

It's a vicious cycle that we've all seen before, and it continues.

Y'okay.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

Oh wow, if it is delayed that would be pretty sad given the comments on how it would be the best version graphically.
