Ok, from 2002-2010, we got:

  • Metroid Prime
  • Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
  • Metroid: Zero Mission
  • Metroid: Fusion
  • Metroid Prime Pinball
  • Metroid Prime Hunters
  • Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
  • Metroid: Other M

So just about 8 metroid games including Pinball. And Other M bombed and such. So metroid just needs to go on a break. But metroid is far from dead lol.

Metroid was "dead" for eight years after Super Metroid, so a long break for the series is hardly anything new.

I guess the waiting's just so hard because we want them to right the wrongs of Other M asap and because we like the idea of a 2D gameplay Metroid with 3D visuals.
It might also have something to do with the image Nintendo tried to give the Wii U at first. If i think Ninty and hardcore games the first thing that comes to mind is Metroid. And i do think the series has all it takes to make an amazing game that not only appeals to its fans but current PS360 owners too.

So it's all right for another 8 year break to occur because it has happened before? Metroid had three games before that hiatus, after it gained 8 new titles. The Metroid Series is more established now, so another eight year break would be almost unacceptable.

Well apparently Super Metroid is the best selling downloadable title on Wii U. So there's that.

It was 30 cents for a while admittedly...

Did I say it should go on another 8-year "break"? No, nor do I think it will.

All I said was that it's not new for the franchise to do so.

I don't understand your logic behind this.
Sonic had Sonic 06,Sonic Series is still going,
Mario games are somewhat the same thing with some "fresh" ideas

Can you tell me how one game makes a franchise that has been around for like 25 years just stop, and thats it.

As controversially bad as Other M was, that shouldn't mean the series should take another 8 year break.

Like B_BlackNinja_N said, Sonic '06 (a much bigger disaster of a game in all respects) didn't hinder the Sonic series or force it to go into a hiatus. In fact if it wasn't for Wii's release in the same year, Sonic wouldn't of bounced back as soon with Secret Rings.

I think Nintendo knows they made a bad move and have been in contact with Retro Studios or whoever else about the next Metroid. Its too great of a franchise to have to hibernate after just one blunder.

Good lord, Other M wasn't that bad. It played extremely well and was fun, even if the story was lame.
And I'm tired of people whining that Metroid is dead just because we haven't seen a game in three years. Back in my day, I had to wait from Super Metroid in 1994 until 2001 for a new Metroid game. Be patient, people. It could be worse.

Currently playing:
-Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (SNES)
-Donkey Kong Country 3 (SNES)
-Yoshi's Island DS (DS)
-Pokemon Y (3DS)
-Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze (Wii U)

As a Beyond Good and Evil fan, I find this idea that 3 years is a long time to be pathetic.

Yeah, Nintendo is most likely preparing something different for Metroid. Not big, but just different. Retro is most likely working on it, as Donkey Kong will be their "2D Mario" while Metroid will be handled as a mainline "3D Mario".
It's also no secret that Metroid games don't sell systems just as well. It will be used when WiiU is swinging again to keep the momentum, but not to push it. I don't quite understand the "failure" of M:OM, as it didn't resonate well with the fans, but still more than a million copies were sold.
As for the 3DS game, it will appear some time soon for sure. There is a Zelda, Yoshi and now Kirby based on their previous installments, so Metroid will surely follow them soon. Metroid Prime Hunters could really sell millions easily if it was properly advertised as an adventure game with enormous online capabilites (co-op and versus modes with unique twists).
