... And we don't actually get a second of concept CG or gameplay footage, unlike whenever they announce a new Mario or Zelda game. Sigh.

Still, though -- Metroid returns! Who's excited? Who thinks they can redeem themselves for the travesty that was Other M​? What are you most hopeful to see, etc, etc?

I'm excited for the fans of Metroid since I've never been a huge fan of the series, but I did really enjoy the first Prime game. Now I have incentive to return to the Prime trilogy and finish it up on the Wii U.

I need to finish up the trilogy when I have time, though I immensely enjoyed Primes 1 and 2. Would have preferred a new 2D Metroid but this is still good.

You got your wish. Not new new, but it's something.

Stop, Nintendo, stop already! You've redeemed yourselves! I'll buy your things now!

Yes, that is something. Would have preferred a brand new adventure but it's been so long since I played Metroid 2 that it will be basically new to me. Some of the changes to the action elements look cool.

I'm with Ganon as I never really got into Metroid, which is weird because I love Metroidvanias. But there's something about how Metroid does it that just doesn't appeal to me. But it was an obvious inspiration for games that I do love. So I appreciate their existence. I've tried Super Metroid and the GBA games, and Metroid Prime, and never finished any of them. Prime was amusingly the one I got the farthest in. But the desolation, lack of story, incessant need to scan everything, and repetitiveness eventually wore on me from all the backtracking

But still, at least they haven't forgotten the franchise as many had feared

I heard that Retro is doing this game. So I'll hold off on any excitement for the time being. I loved Prime 1 though.

I don't get why so many people across the web are so antsy about Retro. The whole Prime trilogy is one of my favorite series of games out there, and it's not like those are flukes for the developer: the Donkey Kong Country games they've been making since are top-notch. Plus they had nothing to do with Other M or Federation Force. What am I missing?

I am actually so hyped for a game I've seen no footage of. (Not even being facetious here)

I loved the Prime series, so if they can bring that gameplay back... my body is ready.

Actually, it has been confirmed that Retro is not the studio working on the game. Kensuke Tanabe is still heading the project, but Nintendo stated at a press roundtable that it had a new development team working on the project, rather than Retro Studios.

Which, interestingly enough, means that Retro still has a project that they've been confirmed to be working on for about three years that we have no other knowledge of.

I heard something different, that they working on the game. I will find this article about that. I came across this article ages ago.
