SEGA wanted to make a Metroid game, but Nintendo turned the proposal down

Well here's a crazy tidbit well worth its own post! The other day, we shared snippets from an interview with SEGA's Toshiro Nagoshi. He talked about working on Super Monkey Ball, as well as F-Zero GX. In the blurb about F-Zero GX, we find out that SEGA had interest in working on a Metroid game, but it seems the pitch never went anywhere.

...while we made a few proposals - Metroid for instance, and others - I was most confident in making a driving game because of my experience in the genre, though I'd never make a sci-fi one.

I can't even begin to imagine what a SEGA-developed Metroid would have been like. All I know is I still want to see it happen!
