@Spanjard I know, but it's a bit silly to let a remake on an old platform determine the future of the 2D Metroid games. I mean, it'll probably sell well, but still...

I actually wish Nintendo made more experimental Kirby games. 64, Epic Yarn and Rainbow Curse are among the better entries in the franchise IMO. Seeing the the new ''generic'' Kirby game for Switch did nothing for me.

How could we let Kirby (a stupid pink glob) outshine Metroid?!
Shame on all Nintendo fans and Nintendo themselves!

Solution; add Samus Kirby as a copy form in the next Kirby game.

@Octane I agree about the remake argument although in this case you could argue it's almost a new game entirely. Gameboy black/white to 3ds is quite a big leap.

A more strong example would be Capcom making a decision in terms of support based on the sales of a retro game for 40,-

Kirby is all-powerful. Kirby absorbs all.

Add every dead franchise to Kirby.

F-Zero: Kirby Edition would be an interesting crossover, imo.

My NL usage will be down a little from September 25-27. I'll be at a work conference.

@Octane: Let's not forget that Kirby is actually HAL Laboratory's baby and they mostly make Kirby games these days. It is interesting that there's been at least one Kirby game a year since 2014.

@Dev It's easier to list the years that didn't have a new Kirby game. And for every year we didn't get one, there's another year that saw the release of two or three new Kirby games.

Because Kirby >>>>> Metroid

The chances of future 2D Metroids being greenlit being based on the sales of Samus Returns is basic business sense. Not silly at all. They're giving the franchise another chance after all the online fan demand. If people don't put their money where their mouth is, then it makes no sense whatsoever to continue making them. Same goes for Prime 4.

Kirby inhaled the topic, becoming Topic Kirby.

This is true for Zelda too if you include the remakes. And like Zelda, this has basically never been a bad thing. Certain franchises should learn how to not make their series dull from these series tbh, they have better understanding of variety and stuff (despite what dumb people who don't get Zelda say).

...oh this is a Metroid thread. OK!

I'll get the game when it comes out. This is actually news, since I think I've bought a grand total of two 2017 games so far.

Huh, what a coincidence. I've been saving up on my Amazon account since E3 for this game, and since I had so much saved up, I just ordered Kirby: Planet Robobot on a whim last night after running through the demo (still have enough for Metroid, so I'm not throwing Samus under the bus!).

You can cancel Metroid. Planet Robobot already has robot suits and alien invaders!

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but they put up an overview trailer on YouTube, and I think it has some footage not shown in the E3 trailer.

It also confirmed some abilities. Space Jump, Wide Beam, Ice Beam, Grapple Beam, an electric barrier that surrounds your armor, a time slow down ability, and a scanning ability that reveals nearby secrets I think the latter three are to make the game more accomodating to new players, as they all drain the same meter, which can be replenished by finding certain energy, or tapping one of the amiibo.

This may not be new (I think I didn't watch the Treehouse footage), but I figure I'd mention it just in case.
