Nintendo’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Scott Moffitt, hasn’t confirmed whether a new Metroid title is being developed for Wii U, but he did say fans of the series get to enjoy Nintendo Land attraction Metroid Blast while developers are “thinking and imagining” about the possibilities of Wii U’s Metroid.
A couple of days ago, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed that Nintendo EAD, Shigeru Miyamoto and Retro Studios are working on unannounced Wii U projects; among the three, who do you wish is the developer of the first HD Metroid game?
“…I think we all can’t wait to see what a Zelda experience might look like in high definition. For now, they’ll have to enjoy the Zelda: Battle Quest game that exists inside Nintendo Land. But I think that we can all imagine that Zelda would look great in HD, and there could be a lot of new features added with the [Wii U] GamePad.”
“With Metroid Blast, you get to enjoy that franchise while the developers are, you know, thinking and imagining what could be possible with Metroid on Wii U.”
