Topic: Metroid Prime series - Not dead yet?

The latest issue of ONM came steaming through my letterbox today (Spirit Tracks reviewed; see what I did there?), and features an interview with the creators of the Metroid Prime series, Retro Studios. It's mostly a retrospective view on their development on the series, but there is one tasty little nudge towards the future.

"ONM: Do you think that Samus will ever return to the DS?
KT: We are always planning to make new games in the Metroid Prime series. Depending on timing and the situation, we cannot deny the possibility of realising it on the DS or DSi."

Exciting, eh? I'm most interested in the fact that they specifically said Metroid Prime as opposed to the Metroid series in general. Could the ever-persistant Dark Samus still be alive somehow? Or maybe the space pirates are trying to artificially create Phazon. I wouldn't put it past them.

SPOILER
Or maybe we'll find out what that green ship was all about.

i'd be happier if the series were over. i think they tapped the well pretty much dry with the trilogy, and that's meant as a compliment. time to move on to new metroids

I'm a diehard Metroid fan. I played almost all the games and I would instantly buy this new DS one. I would also love to see zero suit samus in it....

it's possible there will be a spin-off game or two... but i think that was honestly just a mistake. they've been working non-stop on one series for so many years, you can't jump all over them letting the word "Prime" that has been so hammered into their brains slip once during an interview. i say don't get all hyped up about it, just wait and see what comes of the next metroid game.... after Other M, of course.

I never really liked the Prime series. I want something new and preferably back to 2-D metroid.

I would much rather see a new Metroid sidescroller as well - either on the DS or Wii(Ware).

I hope this doesn't end up like Halo. On the other hand, it is popular and they can do a great job. I say go for it!

I'm about to finish up Prime 3 in the Trilogy package and having the entire series so fresh in my mind I can easilly say that another entry is not neccessary. The story seemed to wrap up nicely and Other M looks like it'll do a good job taking Metroid into a new direction. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE the Prime series and the games are masterpieces but lets leave it at that.

Gotta admit, I really want to see if it really was Sylux in that ship at the end of Corruption.

I loved the prime series, I probably just want another Metroid 1st person shooter for DS with better graphics.

Just let it happen.

Other M was just a working title.
Team Ninja and Nintendo have finally confirmed the official name of the next game:
Metroid: Ninja Samus
