Why won't Nintendo announce a Metroid 3DS?

Other M was a nightmare, and Metroid's not popular in Japan.

Doesn't Japan have enough 3DS exclusives as it is? How about throwing a bone to the western audience for once? And can we disregard Other M, a 2D Metroid would be glorious.

I'd like to see another 2D one, set after Metroid Fusion. Maybe after they put Fusion on the eShop.

Because right now there isn't one to announce?

If you have the term "Official ___ of the __ board" in your signature, you probably hate yourself and don't realize you can't cosplay on boards. GTFO!

Because Nintendo has no idea what they did wrong with Metroid, even though we all know perfectly well what went wrong.

Metroid just isn't a blockbuster. They don't know why it's not; they don't know how to fix that. They tried making Other M overblown with exposition and action, but it really fell flat. Nintendo needs to find a way to combine the quality and deep gameplay/exploration of the best Metroids with good sales potential. Push Samus more as an important character.

Fanboys, especially SONY fanboys, are what's wrong with gaming. Not changing my sig till someone proves me wrong.
