Why isn't there a Metroid 3DS yet?

#1PrealienkingPosted 8/9/2011 10:14:10 PM
I mean, it is the 25th anniversary of Metroid? Why weren't they making a Metroid?

Hell, even a 3D classic of the original Metroid on the Eshop would suffice -_-


...or is there one planned and I am very uninformed...?

Fusion is an ambassador game.


That is the only Metroid-related thing this year.

Second Chances sure are great. It's nice to be back, GameFAQs.

As long as it isn't a first person Metroid game. It's a bit annoying having to aim with the touchscreen.

EDIT: Metroid Fusion is gonna be available later on this year tho.

^I hope your joking. Prime hunters was the best ds game to date.
I would profer a 2d sidescroller though.

Probably because they have their hands full right now with trying to juggle the 3DS launch and prepping for the WiiU launch.

Forgot about that. Was it fun? (Never actually played a metroid game before, I know, it's embarassing. I plan to fix that by the end of the year)

Still, they could at least outsource a 3D classic. No doubt it would make a profit.

Well if you like aiming with a stylus then fine.

After Other M, I'm not sure I even want a new Metroid game.

WHY THE **** DO I SEE DEAD PEOPLE WHERE THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE?

I'd be interested in seeing a Metroid Prime port with gyroscopic aiming, but the system's getting enough of those and the Prime trilogy (actually, just 1 and 2) has been ported once already. New Metroid sidescroller please. And make it not suck like Other M did.
