Metroid sells worse than Donkey Kong.
It's not a system seller.

Troll is right.
Metroid, like F-Zero isn't a big seller.
RIP Hiroshi Yamauchi.

True, but it doesn't mean it can't make a profit.

New Metroid confirmed.
Excuse me, more spaghetti please.
And bring some more egg rolls while you're at it.

I think you misread the article and the point.

They didn't say "Retro making a new Metroid is in high priority." They said the converse:

"When it comes to making a new Metroid, Retro is in high priority to make that."

As in, if there is a new Metroid in the works, Retro would likely be the group to work on it. They didn't say Retro is working on a game, or high chance of them working on a Metroid game in the future. Its more "If there is a new Metroid game coming out, Retro is likely the group to work on it."

And yes, to say Metroid is a system seller but not Donkey Kong is silly. DKCR sold like 5 million copies (or just under) BEFORE factoring in the 3DS version. Metroid Prime series combined I don't think even reaches that value.

From a commercial and financial standpoint, Donkey Kong is Retro's greatest contribution to Nintendo, not Metroid, and there's nothing wrong with that, as it is both a quality game and one that sold probably well above Nintendo's expectations (I'm sure they were expecting a success, but not on the level of most Zelda games.)

For me? Metroid is a system seller. I'd buy a Wii U for dat hotness.

I don't even care who develops it, truth be told...
