That is why Nintendo isn't even bothering to make one. The market is already saturated by shooters, and metroid games don't appeal to a vast market. Just let it go guys, i know i have.

Thank you.
You know the gaming industry is **** when the biggest announcement is that a console can play used games and won't totally screw you over.

The problem isn't FPS saturation, it's that Metroid doesn't replicate other main stream FPS's.

Throw in a good MP with customization and market the hell out of it.

Oops, misread the link as "in 2014" not "by 2014". Disregard what I said. >_<

Metroid does not sell that much, the best selling Metroid game is Metroid Prime, and it sold aprox 3 millions worldwide....

Still is my favorite Nintendo series...

Metroid has never been a series that sold a great deal. It always had a consistent fanbase that the games were aimed at though, a fanbase Nintendo could count on to buy each new version. We're only facing uncertainty about the franchise's future because Nintendo decided to alienate half of that fanbase with Other M.
