This gorgeous figma is due out this October. Make sure to check out even more pics right here.
Link gets added in the other day, and now Samus is thrown into the mix as well. Looks like Street Fighter modders have an affinity for Nintendo characters!
The following information comes from a GameSpot interview with Reggie Fils-Aime:
Oh, so earlier today I got asked about Mother 3; maybe you can ask me about Metroid. Look, again, I am proud as an executive with Nintendo to say that we look at all of the boards and all of the comments and we really have a good understanding of what our consumers want. And believe me, we take that to heart as we work to create content.
So I have nothing to announce--here. But we are aware that there are some key IP that consumers just can't wait for the next true installment in that franchise's legacy. Suffice it to say, we're aware of it, and talk to me in a year and let's look back and see what's happened.
I know many of people would like to see Metroid return. The rumors say it's happening, but Retro isn't involved. What company would Nintendo be pairing up with for Samus' console return?
Haven't seen OBE1's vid yet but you know I've been saying Metroid on Switch is happening for a while now. I have his back on that part.— 🐝am Robertson (@Doctor_Cupcakes) January 11, 2017
I first tipped OBE1 off about Metroid (he lost his shit, it was cute), so I'll be curious if he has dug up any new info.— 🐝am Robertson (@Doctor_Cupcakes) January 11, 2017
I've been 50/50 on sharing Obe1Plays content, but with the backing of Liam Robertson, I feel confident in sharing this rumor. The most interesting part of the rumor is the dev working on the title, which is apparently quite surprising. Let the speculation begin! Thanks to Jacktendo92 for the heads up!
This is what the soundtrack sounded like when you were a young kid! I mean, this is how you remember it anyway. Man, this is some fantastic stuff!
For those in Japan and North America looking to squeeze as much excitement possible from Metroid Prime: Blast Ball, your days are numbered. Nintendo has announced that the game's online servers will be taken offline on Dec. 31st, but local multiplayer will still function. As for the version of Blast Ball in the full retail version of Federation Force, that will continue without disruption.
Thanks to Chozoboy for the heads up!
