2017 was a great year for Metroid fans. Nintendo published Metroid: Samus Returns for the Nintendo 3DS, and they also announced that Metroid Prime 4 would be arriving on the Nintendo Switch console. But get ready for even more Metroid this year. Too much Metroid? Nah. Never.
According to a series of posts on the ResetEra forums, it looks like there may be a new 2D Metroid game coming our way. Apparently the game is in the early stages of development and is being worked on by an external team. Great news for fans of the franchise.
We don’t have many details about the game right now and it is unclear if this alleged 2D Metroid title will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, or if it is a game for the 3DS handheld. Maybe both. We also don’t know when the game will be released, but it will likely be a while before we see it.
E3 2018 is taking place in June later this year, so maybe Nintendo will have more information for us then. We hope so as we are eager to hear more news about this new title. Hopefully this turns out to be true and not just rumor.
