So what's stopping them froom just making another Metroidvania without the Metroid skin?


Absolutely nothing. And it's called something like "The Next Shantae Game" or you know.
You only need to know two things to understand KH: Everyone is Sora, Everything is Xehanort's fault.

Wayforward + Retro should make it.

Oh god no.

Not saying Wayforward is bad or anything but they suck and making Metroidvanias. Monster Tale and Aliens Infestation were fun but they didnt fit the genre at all. Soooo much wasted potential in both games.


What the crap are you talking about? Didn't fit the genre in what sense? Why do you say they are wasted potential even though they are great games?

Plus, Monster Tale is not made by Wayforward.
What? You pooped in the refrigerator? And you ate the whole... wheel of cheese? How'd you do that? Heck, I'm not even mad; that's amazing.

Someone just suggested that Metroid take inspiration from IGA's Castlevania games

If a crappy story ruined a game so much most games released on Nintendo platforms wouldn't be fun.
The story was the LEAST of the problems with Other M.

As long as it's back to the 2D formula, I'm in. Sick of FPS' already (not just Metroid).

The funny thing is that a good Metroid isn't even that hard to do. Ditch the long winded talking, give more non-linear exploration in interesting locations and powerups. There, good Metroid game. The series dried up when it started handhelding the players and talking too damn much.

Though, if they do the same job they did with Contra 4 (in recreating a game that's faithful to the franchise), they might just nail it.
Why do you play games you don't enjoy? Are you a masochist?

Considering that Griptonite approached Sega with a Shinobi demo and Sega went with it, Wayforward could do the same with Metroid or even Mega Man.
