To be honest, I think there are many better potential devs for a Wii U Metroid game than Platinum Games. So no, they shouldn't be handed Metroid for Wii U.

I am most definitely a fan of Mr. Kubrick, sir. Ashamed to say I have still not seen BARRY LYNDON.

As for the discussion at hand, I think perhaps STAR FOX would be a better fit for Platinum. I still think their take on Metroid would be fast paced insanity, and I'm fine with that as long as the exploration aspect is perfect. Retro hit the nail on the head with the Prime series. OTHER:M needed way more exploration.

This is not true at all.

Metal Gear Rising was supposed to be a ridiculous action game regardless IIRC, but was given to Platinum after the previous team failed to make it.

People who play Metal Gear not expecting crazy blown out of proportion levels of ridiculous are stupid.

Eh, assuming Nintendo watches over the story I think it could be very fun.

I haven't gotten around to watching Barry Lyndon yet either. I have watched Dr. Strangelove at least 10 times by now so that almost makes up for it.

I'm yet to play Other M, I've watched some gameplay of it and I like the look of how it plays but the cut scenes really put me off playing it. I'm not a huge Metroid fan (I've only played Super and Prime 1), but what I love about both games so far is the atmosphere and sense of exploration. From what I can tell, Other M doesn't pull that off.

A lot of people seem to be really underestimating Platinum Games on here. They might not make much other than action games lately, but they have a lot of staff that have worked on other projects at different studios.
For instance, Hideki Kamiya worked on Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 1. Both games had great atmosphere and the latter's map design is not so far removed from a Metroid game.

Really? Platinum Games is working on a new Metroid game? If so, YES! :)

Even though I have beaten many of the games I'm still playing, I play them not to win, but to have fun.

If you can get for cheap (I've seen it for $10) OTHER:M is worth a play-through. The graphics are awesome and switching to first person by pointing the WiiMote at the screen works really well. When green flashes on the edge of the visor you jerk the 'mote to the side and do a dodge manuver. You should play PRIME 3. It has possibly the best use of Wii Motion Control next to SKYWARD SWORD.

@Philip_J_Reed
Go play ALIENS: INFESTATION on DS. It's decent if you're an ALIENS fan, and it's pretty much WayForward's METROID. Sadly, it's nowhere near as good as METROID: FUSION.
