Metroid: Other M divided fans of Samus Aran, but Team Ninja wouldn't mind giving the series another go — if Nintendo is up for it, too.
At Gamescom, VG247 asked Team Ninja studio head Yosuke Hayashi about the possibility of a sequel. Hayashi expressed an interest in working with the Kyoto company again in the future, in particular Metroid co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto. For now, the Morph Ball is in Nintendo's court.
“Unfortunately Metroid is kind of out of our league as it’s Nintendo’s game, but we’re still in close touch with co-creator Sakamoto-san, so we want to do something with him moving forward definitely. It really depends on what he wants to do with the game first.”
Our wish for a possible sequel? A little less of the baby talk.
