“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.” - Yosuke Hayashi, Team Ninja
Yoshio Sakamoto is definitely known as one of the big players with the Metroid series. With that said, I'm not too sure the pairing of Sakamoto and Team Ninja worked out well for Metroid the last time around. I'd be very nervous if the two teamed up again for another crack at Samus.
