Would you support a SPIRITUAL SUCCESSOR to METROID?

I don't think people have realized this. Big Nintendo franchises have a habit of skipping consoles.
Kirby skipped the Gamecube, Star Fox skipped the Wii, and Metroid skipped the N64. It's Metroid's turn again.

I'm not talking about Metroidvania (a genre), I'm talking a spiritual successor to Metroid directly.
(as opposed to Castlevania)


Have you even played Shadow Complex?


Exactly, Shadow Complex was built as a spiritual successor to Super Metroid, and was quite successful at it.

But to answer the original poll, I would support a sequel to Shadow Complex or another new spiritual successor.

Spinoffs don't count

Translation: I'm going to ignore Kirby's name in the title so I can pretend that a Kirby game was never released for the GameCube.

Joking aside, it's still a Kirby game, spinoff or not.

Oh your god, I hope that doesn't happen again.
I mean Metroid Prime turned out to be a great game and all, maybe one of the best, but skipping a generation is rather drastic.

Its not a mainline Kirby game.
Like if they didn't release a 3D mario game in vein of Sunshine/64/Galaxy, there'd sure as hell be Mario games, but no Mario game this gen.

I see a lot of support for Mighty Number 9 as a spiritual successor to Megaman, and is even being made by the Keiji Inafune, co-designer for Megaman.

I wanted to see how many of you would support a similar decision for the Metroid series.

After Other M, there is a bad omen about the brand, and we are even seeing lore contradictions to and from the manga.

A spiritual successor allows for a fresh start with new characters, new story, and a new title.


Depends, does that mean no Other M 2? If not then no. If you can have both, Sure why not.
