    Take this one with a grain of salt. Platinum Games, the game studio who created Bayonetta 2 for Wii U, appears to have hinted at a new Metroid via a recent tweet. Some people speculate that this indeed was a hint at a new Metroid, though it could just have been a tweet to promote Bayonetta 2 since they also posted a picture of Bayonetta in a Samus suit. The tweets says:

    Metroid Other M was the last Metroid game released 5 years ago by Team Ninja. Since it wasn't as well received as the Prime series, people expected the next Metroid from Retro Studios, whose Facebook page has been spammed over the years by pleadings to develop Metroid Prime 4. This time it could potentially be yet another game studio to develop the next Metroid, though we know for certain that currently Retro Studios is working on something. We may know more at next month's E3 press conference.

    :unsure: ..Don't know what to think about that one... ...I guess it could be interesting if real. Retro Studios have done enough of those games already, and a new team doing new takes on the franchise (IF the team is actually good) is a better choice, the way I see it.

    So, yeah! ..it could be good actually! ...they have a good base to start from, with the Prime trilogy to use as a reference. They could really do something awesome.

    Has to be Metroid... because it is the only game that uses "Energy Tanks."

    MegaMan says hello...

    Things I'd expect from a Metroid game by Platinum Games:

    1) Some or a lot of QTE
    2) Short story mode
    3) Sexualised female characters (I don't mind)
    4) Fantastic gameplay
    5) Great soundtrack
    6) Comedy & references to other games

    I'd pre-order it in a flash!

    Gambia, The
    not going to happen.
    expect the next metroid to not include any metroids or samus aran and to be just a metroid-style game and having to pre-pay for it on kickstarter.

    Bayonetta 1 and Wonderful 101 had a lot of it but despite it I still very much liked them.

    Wat. Some Bayonetta bosses had some QTE. Sparse if any elsewhere. Platinum Games is known for having an impeccable record for making fantastic quality, quirky games, I dunno what Platinum games you're thinking of.
    If you think they use a lot of QTE, you've clearly never actually played a game with even mild use of QTE. Try Ninja Blade.

    Having played Bayonetta 1 and 2, this news, if true, makes me confident in Platinum Games' abilities in game making. The QTE in Bayonetta bothered me though, but it's just not my style of gameplay. Inundated with Smash Bros and Pokemon, adapting to "new" to me controls and mechanics was a stretch. Even after finishing both games, recently playing 1 again, I sucked so hard at the quick time events. I would not be as bothered if you could return to title screen and restart at a previous autosave point. Instead it always saves at the QTE, so if you die and restart, you restart the whole chapter! I got acquainted with Chapter III a lot as a result.

    Also being reminded of how hard the 1st game was, the 2nd was hard too, and pretty mean on combo points, but the 2nd had a bit more breathing room. "A bit" being the operative term. Anyways, love the picture.

    I wouldn't mind him making it, but I doubt it.

    I doubt it, I think some people are just reading too much into it. I love Platinum, but I don't think I want them to do a Metroid game. I'm not even sure about Retro. I loved Prime, but I didn't care much for 2 or 3.

    Sounds more like advertisement of bayonetta 2 to me (which would be logical since IT IS THEIR OWN GAME!). But hey...speculators are going to speculate.

    This is pretty much the definition of reaching. I know you're all desperate for a new Metroid game, but clinging to this? Really? Something that was so obviously a joke?
