New Metroid Prime Not Likely Until NX Console is Released - News

by Craig Snow , posted on 17 June 2015 / 3,025 Views

In yet another signal that Nintendo's console development resources are being funnelled into the NX console and away from the Wii U, Metroid Prime series producer, Kensuke Tanabe, has told Eurogamer that a new Metroid console game is not likely until the NX is released:

"If we started for Wii U now, it would likely take three years or so. So it would likely now be on Nintendo's NX console.

It's a long time but it would need to include a lot of content, which would take a lot of work on the development side."

Tanabe is clear in stating that he does want to create a proper numbered console entry in the series though - "Three ends the trilogy, but if I can I would like to continue with numbered games."

For now, however, fans only have Metroid Prime: Federation Force for the 3DS to look forward to.

So I guess that confirms that the NX is indeed a home console.

Or there will be both an NX console and an NX handheld, which means that NX is Fusion probably, 2 unified devices that can play the same games at different graphics settings.

I think NX is a series of device like PS, Xbox, etc.

Then why would Iwata mention it at a conference regarding its mobile entry? I think it'll be a hybrid. Iwata said something about NX to reassure that their mobile bout wouldn't distract them from a dedicated system.You're probably right tho. Just throwing that out there.

To me it sounds like a home console with X86 architecture with a tablet controller that's MUCH smaller than the Wii U controller that you can download all of the games onto and take with you anywhere. This tablet will also be online wherever you go so that would succeed both Wii U and 3DS. I for one can't wait! I was soooooooo let down by this years E3 Direct.....

If we started for Wii U now, it would likely take three years or so. So it would likely now be on Nintendo's NX console. That's very interesting,I might copy the sayers of all the recent hyperboles/easy conclusions,and use that to tell that Nx is coming in 2018!:P

Well, we dont know if this new metroid will be one of its launch title though.

"nx wont be a replacement for the wii u" is like "Nintendo DS is not be a replacement for the gameboy advance".

The Nintendo DS was a replacement of the GBA. Or I didn't see a NEW GB line device run at the same time as the DS?

The new console should launch with Metroid Prime, a brand new TRUE 3D Mario in the mold of SM64, a true Animal Crossing and F-Zero. If I were in charge, that's what everyone would get.

"nx wont be a replacement for the wii u" is like "Nintendo DS is not be a replacement for the gameboy advance".

Makes Sense. No point wasting money on a dead console.


teamsilent13 (on 18 June 2015)

I agree with you. Nintendo shouldn't make consoles if they can't get it right. Fanboys wanna downvote you, but did they even watch E3. Nintendo looked terrible and the Wii U is irrelevant.

That is a clickbait title. You make it sound like the game is being moved to the NX when the game doesnt even exists.


kljesta64 (on 17 June 2015)

thats also one of the reasons i made this thread

Sorry, I disagree, what I wrote doesn't imply that a Metroid game is being moved at all.

I don't get how that title implies there is a Metroid for Wii U at all...
