here's what i want to see

1. NO MORE PHAZON!
let it die. it wore it's welcome out long after metroid prime 2 and metroid prime 3 just got silly with it. use a different plot device if you want, but just stop with the phaozn. Phazon has been a mcguffin for all 3 metroid prime games honestly i think its had more time in the spot light then metroids have.

2. bring in more of the old school creatures.
like Sidehoppers and its big brother Baristute, Waver, Geruta, Ripper, have later stages of metroid besides metroid larva. It would be real neat to see alpha, Gamma, zeta, and omega metroid have there debut in a mteroid prime game.
let bosses like, Kraid and Crocomire have a chance in the spot light. lets see the return of torizo.
it would also be nice to see the speed boost using Dachora and wall jumping Etecoons again.

3. Other hunters
despite how much i think prime hunters was the worst metroid game to date (yes i disliked it more then people hate other m shocker.) i did like the idea of having more intelligent alien species that were not 1. dead like the chozo and 2. space pirates and g feds (yes i know g feds are not exclusively humans, but they are the only ones we've seen in game. can't speak for metroid federations as I've not played it.)

4. samus moving like actual samus.

No more snail speed tank suit samus. Give me speed boost give me the actual space jump( since the last 3 metroid prime games space jump worked more like high jump then space jump.) we live in times where we have games like DOOM 2016 and Bright Memory (not to mention Mirrors Edge that came out 11 years ago.) lets do away with the broken legs FPS games already. i shouldn't have to spend 90% of the game using boost ball to get around in a timely manner. Samus has traditionally ran faster then her morph ball mode. mrophball should be for small spaces not a car. Also she should be able to grab onto all ledges. wall jumps should be a natural thing not tied to screw attack.

5. weapons working the way they should.

make plasma beam green and pierce through enemies. stop making it just fire beam
wave beam should go through the environment. not be just electric beam.
add in old beams like spazer beam/wide beam. we have plenty of games with shot gun patters. pretty sure its not that hard to implement.
let her beams be mixed and matched like in super metroid.
screw attack should be the attack it was in the metroidvania games. in the prime games it has the damage output of spin jump from the 2d games which was basically charge beam and jumping at enemies.

6. Bigger maps and more of them.

with the expectation of Echoes. i found that hunters, prime 1 and 3.
had depressingly small and few maps.
(and yes i know echos basicly had 4 areas, not counting the dark worlds.) but counting the dark woulds thats still 3 more levels then the first game which had
talon overworld, chozo ruins, magmoor caverns, phendna drifts phazon mines
and don't get me started on. prime 3
total of 4 locations not counting the tiny derelict ship.
and SkyTown was basically one giant gimmick level with the grapple hook to grind around.
(not counting final areas since those aren't really exploration based.0

7. please let it take place after fusion.

after super metroid (which is my 2nd most favorite game.) fusion was one of my all time favorites. it would be nice to see a continuation after it left off.

Warframe is a good example of having corridor levels on planet surfaces or in orbital spaceships, but also a wide openworld area that adds so much to the world's atmosphere (and there's exciting stuff like rng missions and even a nearby town - not to mention it's an mmo.) I don't think all of this needs to be in Metroid (especially not the farming for materials), but is it too much to ask for a new Metroid Prime game that can showcase at least some of the modern features and technical highlights that, of all things, a third party F2P Switch game did months ago?

Can we talk about Metroid Prime Trilogy HD here as well?
I already have the Trilogy disc on Wii, and the 3 games separately on Gamecube/Wii, but a HD treatment is long overdue! (I kinda wish they saved the trilogy for Wii U so we could have all three games in HD already). Thinking about the heavily rumoured remaster I got some suggestions and wishes:

First off, let me say that I think that Metroid Prime Hunters had the potential to be Nintendo's fps eSport game long before Splatoon! That was before hackers took over the Nintendo DS online scene.

So, I would add a fourth game called Metroid Prime Hunters X and make it the main attraction!
An online multiplayer fps that builds on Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime Hunters, and Metroid Prime: Federation Force, but especially on the framework of Hunters (with Echoes' multiplayer stages as a bonus and Federation Force's extra modes). I'd do everything to bring Metroid into the online eSports market again.

Other than that people wanted the friend vouchers from MP3:C to be gone. I didn't like them either. I missed a bunch of content that couldn't be unlocked without sharing vouchers with other people playing through MP3:C. You just hoped the few online friends with MP3:C had the extremely limited vouchers in all the colors you needed. I'd change that facebooky mess and make all of its content regular unlockables.

seeing metroid the mother of single player metroidvania games devolve into another generic esport multiplayer vs game is the last thing i want to see metroid become. i would rather have metroid other m 2 then that.

It's only a rumor, but word round the campfire is that Armature Studio (a development studio built by former Retro Studios staff members) is assisting Retro Studios in order to fast-track Metroid Prime 4 development.

I can't deny that his content is compelling, and his facetious attitude equally entertaining.

@Magician Lol, yep, we are talking about the same person. I do like his content. Surprised his channel hasn't blown up yet.

I remember following the first few games they did and whilst they weren't bad, they weren't great either. The main ones I remember were ReCore & Batman Blackgatewhich seemed could have been great but were just executed poorly.

ReCore started fun... but it's combat quickly became frustrating. To the point I uninstalled it and stopped caring about beating it.

Interesting to hear. Assuming it's true, I totally wouldn't mind. The more people that worked on the original Metroid Primes, the better, IMO.

@Ninfan

The rumour said 3 didn't it? Prime Trilogy, Prime 4 and Super Metroid Remake?

I hope that rumour is true. It's basically everything I wanted. Super Metroid is my favourite in the series. Prime is my 2nd favourite. And I never played Prime 2 and 3, but I'm guessing I'll love them.

So I'd basically play everything in the last asap.

The Metroid Prime Trilogy HD rumors just won't die. Simply because it makes too much sense. But a Metroid 3 remake? Most 16-bit games age incredibly well, which makes this rumored remake seem unnecessary.

I dunno. Maybe Nintendo looked at the Seiken Densetsu remakes and thought, "eh, why not?"

@Magician

The one thing which absolutely needs to be remade is the controls. Samus Returns on the 3DS controlled so perfectly, whereas the original Super Metroid is incredibly clumsy if you play it today. Everything made before analog sticks controls badly today, unless it's based on entirely 4 directional movement like FF6.

I'd be dubious about the graphics of the remake though. There's a good chance it'd end up losing the atmosphere and style of the original.

They could definitely screw it up but considering we can always just go back to the original I'm willing to give them a shot.

I haven't had control issues in Super Metroid...

Anyhoo, with the extra wait for MP4, I was hoping that they might make Metroid Prime Trilogy into a full Metroid collection. A Super remake alone sounds like a nice alternative. Maybe it doesn't need it, but eh, what the heck.

Maybe they'll give Zero Mission the same treatment someday. A remake of a remake, ha.

I guess Super Metroid is a logical choice for a remake, though I feel like they should move onto making brand new 2D Metroid after that one, assuming it's true.

And of course I'm still eager to try out HD Trilogy. Even more so if they somehow manage to keep the motion controls in, regardless of it being gyro-based rather than IR.

@Dezzy they said TWO BRAND NEW GAMES. So that means there not remakes . I'd guess they'll make some remakes two, you know the way they don't tell you until the games nearly out. I mean you'll get a million people buying switch when them games come out . I remember how metroid prime sold a million gamecubes when it came out .I think the prime trilogy is just the metroid prime and echos from gamecube and the wii metriod ( I think )

@Ninfan

If you go and read the tweet, it's quite clear what they mean. They're saying "new" games to simply mean unannounced thus far.
So the 2 "new" games are 2 old games.

@DarthNocturnal Yeah, Master Chief Collection really sets a high standard for collections. Metroid: The Samus Aran Collection containing:

Metroid/Metroid Zero Mission
Metroid II/Metroid Samus Returns
Super Metroid
Metroid Fusion
Metroid Other M
Metroid Prime Trilogy
Metroid Prime Hunters
Metroid Prime Federation Force

Where Prime 2, Prime Hunters and Federation Force has online multiplayer where applicable.
