Metroid Prime title More Likely Coming to NX, Not Wii U

Statements from Metroid Prime series Producer Kensuke Tanabe in a Eurogamer interview..

“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. Instead of broadening it to more planets I would have one and would focus on the timeline, and being able to change that. That’s one interesting idea I have in mind… but I understand many people thought that [Echoes] was too difficult.

So it was Sylux, another hunter from Metroid Prime Hunters at the end of Metroid Prime 3. Personally I’d like to create a story centring around Sylux and Samus. We’ve done a story based on the Hunters, and this time around we’re doing a story on the Galactic Federation. I would like to cross the two over in the future. And of course see a little more of Samus. Three ends the trilogy, but if I can I would like to continue with numbered games.

I’m the producer of the Metroid Prime series, and [Metroid series co-creator] Yoshio Sakamoto is the one in charge of Metroid itself. I’m not sure when he’s planning on making such an announcement so I can’t speak for him. I’m not thinking about anything like that [partnering with another studio] right now. We have nothing to announce on working with any specific team. It is a great idea, I agree. Truth be told, making HD games takes a lot of time and resources. I haven’t been able to collect a team or the resources to do it.”

In other news, Metroid Prime: Federation Force was also being considered for the launch of the New Nintendo 3DS system, but due to lack of available team and resources, the title is now set to release in 2016.
