    Coming from the same place that posted the rumour that there was a Retro Studios title that would combine both franchises together comes this news that the crossover isn't what Retro are making though it was a proposal at some point...which was also mentioned in the original rumour.

    Posting it here seeing that this was a bit of a big deal when this rumour was first posted in the Wii U seection.

    God the thread on the homepage scared me. I thought it said "Retro aren't doing Metroid".


    But thank fucking goodness. Nintendo would have to be batshit crazy to actually make a game like this with the Metroid and StarFox franchises.

    Metroid and Star Fox have always had different feelings to their games, respectively. Im glad no crossing is happening.

    I can't figure out how a crossover would even work. The two series are absolutely nothing alike, and it's not like Pokemon, where it can do almost anything and get away with it. It's such a dumb idea that believing it to be true would've been foolish anyway.

    Well it won't be Prime if they ever did return, they clearly stated that Prime 3 would be the last one.

    I really hope they don't go back to the series for a long time, its just that I really want Retro to either make something new or revitalise dead games. Personally Nintendo should get the original Fusion/Zero team back together for a side-scroller for now or maybe get another dev who can do something interesting with the series.

    It could still have been Other M 2, though.

    Other M 2 would be nice. I enjoyed the first one.

    I was kind of hoping Retro would go back and make one more Prime. Prime 4 (or another Metroid "FPS") in HD with Retro's stellar art design would look amazing.

    Although I would also like a sidescrolling Metroid game. We're long due for one. Perhaps a side-scroller for the 3DS and a Metroid FPS on the Wii U?

    I'm guessing you're in the camp of people that hated Other M? If youhave been reading any of my posts over the past few years I'm sure you would know that I'm just a different breed of gamer. I loved every bit of Other M. It was a refreshing feel after playing Prime 3 whish was another great game.

    Maybe an alternate to other m, one that handles the characters, story elements, and gameplay better. Really though the last bit wasn't to broken.

    This was actually a rumor? It kind of sounds more like an April Fool's joke than anything else.

    Honestly, I'm pretty glad this isn't happening. Though I do hope we get two separate games :D
