    Maybe its the secret Retro Studios game. Perhaps they're doing it for the DS...or even the DS successor. Would love to see a new 2D Metroid but then I want everything.

    I'd much rather have it on my Wii. Just my opinion but it'd be nice if it was on the DS too. It's nice to know that it does exist though.

    Yeah, I'm in dire need of some decent sidescrollers. This would be great.

    On DS please. I really don't think Retro is working on this. Regie and Iwata have said before they want to see what Retro can do without metroid. I'm pretty sure this game is still in the planning stage. It's been too long for this game to be in development. But then again this is Nintendo here. Who can accurately predict them? No one.

    If we could know how long it has been in development, that would be a good indication if it's gonna be on DS or on Wii (or on DS successor)

    I wouldn't mind. Then I would finally have an excuse to get a DSi.

    Maybe it was stopped during development, who can say why. At this point I really don't think it was a Wii game as it was started before Prime 3 was released and also why go on to do Other M if they is already another Metroid Wii game in development? Unless its WiiWare, but again why take so much time on what is a downloadable and cheap to buy game?

    Holy fucking yes.
    I've been waiting SOOO long for this, and at least we now have something thats MORE than a rumor. Or Easter egg.

    Not only is there gonna be a new innovative metroid game, but also an awesome classic 2d metroid. yay.
    Heres hoping there are more metroids in this than in fusion though.

    Hurrah, but I get the impression from 'it may one day hit stores' that it's either on the backburner, or development never started. Still, why can't someone just go ask Retro Studios what they're up to? Surely it's not that hard...

    EDIT: Here's an excerpt from an interview in 2007:

    If it is ever released, please let it be a DS game.

    Retro Studios will obviously have a contract that states that they are not allowed to say what games they are doing unless Nintendo gives the ok. You know what Nintendo are like with their secrecy, even Monster Games weren't allowed to say anything about Excitebots until months before it was released.

    Hey, do you any of you guys think he may be lying about the development? Maybe Nintendo doesn't want a 2D metroid but he does so hes just saying that so Nintendo will say "great. now the fans think its real. now we have to make it." Just an idea.

    welll... look what happened with Gold and Sliver. Now its (remakes) a reality.

    same thing here- except, they were seriously hinting at it for years now. "Dread" will be harder to make with just one source.
