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.

Favorite Game: Metroid Prime Hunters

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.

Currently playing: Sonic Heroes, Frogger :Ancient Shadow, and Fire Emblem Awakening

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 (SNES)
-Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)
-Yoshi's New Island (3DS)
-Pokemon Y (3DS)
-Child of Light (Wii U)

I guess metroid is the Paul McCartney of video games... it's walking right in front of everyone and people still say it is dead....

or was it Megaman?

goodbyes are a sad part of life but for every end there's a new beggining so one must never stop looking forward to the next dawn

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).

I think Metroid is dead because of the end of Fusion. Think about it, at the end of the game, Samus is pretty much an outlaw, the Metroids are extinct, she will get NO help from the GF anymore, she has a parasite in her, and exactly how can you be a bounty hunter when you're wanted? If they continue a game that takes place after Fusion, I don't think Metroid will feel quite the same ever again. So for now, personally I think Metroid is dead; not for the lack of games, but the afterward of Fusion...when you think about it it is actually kind of depressing.

implying Nintendo would go in that direction

also a lot of these plots turn out to be more that a faction of the government force is evil and then they stop the evil part and the good guys win so yeah...

Not releasing a Metroid FPS on the wiiu, with its dual screens, hd graphics and plenty of control options, will be a total failure for nintendo... Said that, i don t even want to think that they will be so stupid, skipping this to maybe realize another 2d platform... Ops kirby and yoshi for 2015... (facepalming here)

I'd like very much Other M, even the voice acting part.
