Yosuke Hayashi of Team Ninja, who worked on Metroid: Other M for the Wii, has shared that he would love to continue working with the franchise. Here’s what he said:
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.
I have a feeling a lot of Metroid fans don’t what this to happen though. But I do hope it doesn’t take too long for the franchise to make an appearance on the Wii U. The tablet controller will be a perfect addition.
