Samus is always primed for action

We may still be recovering from the majesty of Metroid Prime Trilogy, but a recent interview with the UK's Official Nintendo Magazine has unearthed an even more exciting titbit: there may be more Metroid Prime games on the way.

Speaking to the magazine, Kensuke Tanabe of Nintendo said:

We are always planning to make new games in the Metroid Prime series. Depending on the timing and the situation, we cannot deny the possibility of realising it on DS or DSi.

Of course, even if such a handheld adventure for Samus doesn't come to fruition we still have Metroid: Other M to look forward to next year, so fans of the bounty hunter won't be out of her shiny metal arms for too long.
