I don't mind the multiplayer but the story was, IMO, the most lacking a Metroid game has ever had (The pinball game doesn't count). It's like they made it literally just to show off the multiplayer. If they make one for 3DS, they had better make it right this time.
Not sure I'd like a handheld third-person Metroid to have fully 3D gameplay like Other M, though.
Wouldn't it be insulting to a Gamecube/Wii handheld to have PURELY 2D graphics, especially with a franchise as big as Metroid? Metroid has this habit of trying to make itself look good with the graphical limitations of its consoles and I don't see why this should be an exception. 2D gameplay is fine, but 2D graphics are all but dead. The only games that really use them anymore are just trying to profit from the retro factor or el cheapo arcade games.
I think there were just a lot of limitations with Hunters. The DS just wasn't enough to really have a good 3D metroid game on. With this new hardware we certainly could have a legit game and... probably a game I'd say might end up being one of the better ones in the series. Of course Prime is done now so... We'd need a whole new title/series. Which I'd be all for of course :3
What's this news about the retro games for the 3DS? I'm really curious about it, especially if there's gonna be a remake of Super Metroid. Link?
