Metroid Prime Producer Says Next Metroid Prime “Would Likely Now Be On NX”

We all kind of suspected it and now it has pretty much been confirmed by Metroid Prime series producer Kensuke Tanabe. The next entry in the beloved Metroid Prime series will be on the NX once it launches. As you already know we won’t be hearing about the NX platform until next year. This has been reiterated by Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime and Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. Here’s what Kensuke Tanabe had to say about Metroid Prime.

“If we started for Wii U now, it would likely take three years or so. So it would likely now be on Nintendo’s NX console,” he said.

“It’s a long time but it would need to include a lot of content, which would take a lot of work on the development side.”

Thanks, Marce2240

  1. i wanted so badly to say to myself that buying my Wiiu was a good choice. However, I fell so bad and betrayed and sad by the decisions made by Nintendo, like really so sad. I will enjoy the good games I have for my Wiiu but it is sad that it is left behind on its deathbed.

    1. This is a huge disapointment but it doesnt mean supports being cut, snes lasted 5 years here before n64, n64 lasted 5 before game cube, gc lasted 5 before wii and wii lasted 6 before wii u. If the wii u lasted 5 or 6 years it will be a typical nintendo home console life cycle.

      1. But it’s not going to last five years. The Wii U was released late 2012. You could really say 2013. It’s only 2015… So the Wii U is already a dead system after only 2 and a half years…

        You could say three years because there is technically support right now through the holidays….

        So yea, three years…not five. Not six.

      3. But the problem is, many of the past consoles before Wii U were vastly supported and had better games than Wii U did and Nintendo ultimately never did shit with it so of course many have felt the same sting as Sega fans did in their console days.

      1. Surely you’re not suggesting the PS4 is a dead console. If so, you are one pathetic fanboy. PS4 is crushing the competition in sales. Say what you want about the amount of games, but that console is not dead.

      1. I think the general consensus would be that Nintendo just released two consoles during the 8th generation instead of complicating things by couning the number of consoles themselves. Still, you have to wonder what would the NX mean for Sony and Microsoft. Probably nothing, though, but…

        Correction: there HASN’T been. This scenario has never happened before, to try to predict how people are going to organize this clusterfuck is pure speculation.

        Let’s say the NX launches at holiday season 2016. 9th generation is born, PS4 and Xbox One are still going strong. However, the NX fails to creat a decent instalbase. After two years, Nintendo kills the suport for the system again and drops out of the home console market.

        The next year, both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox… Two? come out. Would they be considered 10th generation consoles? Did Sony and Microsoft just skip a generation?

        Patterns and tradition work until they don’t. It’s not like the generation of consoles is anything official, either, it’s a term created out of convenience.

      8. my point was dreamcast started that generation really early then PS2, Gamecube, and Xbox came along. If NX is the next console from Nintendo that replaces the Wii U then the 9th generation would start no matter how early it was.

      9. Which is a case much more similar to the Wii U, not to the NX, since the fifth gen started in 1994 and the Dreamcast came out in 1998, more or less when a generational change was needed. The NX would hypothetically come out not even four years after the Wii U launched. Not to mention, the fifth generation kicked off with both the Saturn and the PlayStation (so the ‘generation’ itself was pretty old in 1998), while the Wii U had a very large head start this generation (which makes the other consoles much newer and the decision of burying the Wii U much more dramatic). It’s not the same case at all.

        Like

      10. it is the same case. There will be no new console next year. When the NX is spoken or “reveal” in 2016, it will not release next year. Wii U will have its 5 year cycle or close to it. Just because in this Digital Event, they only spoke of games releasing in 2015 or early 2016 does not mean they will not reveal any more games for 2016. There is at least 2 more Directs this year. There is so much overreacting going on. A little off topic but for 2016 so far there is Zelda, SMTXFE, Mario & Sonic, and Project Treasure that is known. Back on topic, if by some chance the NX did release in 2016, The Wii U would be 4 years old. So in your 1994 to 1998 example, it would be the same for the NX to start in 2016 when the 8th gen started in 2012.

      11. Having a 5 year life cicle doesn’t mean anything if the console isn’t supported, though.

        As it is, and with all these rumors about projects jumping ship, the cautious attitude is to assume the worse and be proven wrong with the eventual Directs, which I’m sure are coming, as you say.

        I’m not complaining about the 2015, I actually think it’s pretty good. Much better than the later years of the Wii, for example.

        And it still wouldn’t be the same, because the Wii U didn’t start the generation with a competitor. It started it by itself, alone. At least the PlayStation was as old as the Saturn when Sega pulled the plug, so the generation in general was older. A generational change was much more justified, you could say that the N64 just was introduced too late.

        However, speaking of the current gen, both rival consoles aren’t even two years old. Had the PS4 been revealed at the same time as the Wii U, it would be as old now, and Nintendo would be in a better position to force a generational change in their competitors. That is not the case, however, so Nintendo doesn’t have the advantage that Sega had in that aspect, hence why I say that both situations aren’t comparable. Those four years were a totally different situation compared to these four years.

      12. The Wii U is not even 3 years old yet. Rumors are just that rumors. I agree to assume the worse. That is one way to go. I am just going to play my games and enjoy what I have. There will be new additions to what I have now and I will have fun. In the the 7th gen the XBox 360 release without a competitor and the XBox was last released or second to last memory a little fuzzy. Wait and see is the best approach to take because this is something that is out of our hands. You are right the situation is different but the generational term would still be the same.

      17. That’s what I’m thinking. I just really hope they take their time, and don’t release it early. I’d love for Nintendo to make a console again, that can be competitive hardware wise.

        If Nintendo releases the NX so early, I could see that being a problem. They may end up in the same exact position they are in now. Sure, it may actually release with good games at launch, but you also have to think about the fact it will most likely be behind the competitors tech wise, because of this.

        It will also likely lead to the same third party situation we have now on the system, because the tech will be behind both Sony and Microsoft’s for the third time in a row. More importantly, with the way Nintendo goes about developing their games, they really need third party support. Love ’em or hate ’em, they need games to fill the space between their development on first party titles.

        I mean if it were my company, I’d make it a habit to always release my systems last. People might have to wait a little longer, but it would ensure that the system is competitive, and that you have the upper hand in making any last minute adjustments.

        I can only hope for their sake, that somehow it does not end up less than what the PS4 and Xbox One have now, or even the same. The odds are really against them, they really are going to have to amaze the crap out of people with this new system, especially when no one even knows what Sony or Microsoft have in store for their next systems.

        People want the most bang for their buck these days, and if Nintendo releases another sub par system, I don’t think people will be flocking in droves to get it. Maybe I’m wrong, but the trend today seems to be all about power. The Wii had some great games, but people still knew it was under powered, and how featureless it was compared to the other systems.

        Nintendo should not aim to be a secondary system.

        Now I’m not a graphics whore, but power is important. More power, attracts developers. They know they’ll have more freedom to create the game they want, instead of having to move around so many limitations. It’s just better period, even for Nintendo’s own development studios to have a system that is the best it can be. They had some cool ideas for the Wii U, but it came a great cost.

        They need to find a better balance between innovation, and keeping up with technology today.

      20. I agree with everything you said. I also think that the NX shouldn’t be rushed like how Sega did the Saturn or otherwise it could suffer the same fate. Nintendo needs to take their time and sit down not only with 3rd party developers but also with their in house development teams as well and ask what type of specs are needed to create the games that they want to make. If it’s a hybrid system I sincerely hope that both the home console and handheld versions are sold separately

        If the NX gets proper 3rd party support there will be no stopping it, it will be dominant regardless of what Sony and Microsoft does with their next consoles. Also they need to continue to secure more 3rd party exclusives through deals because they really should’ve had Shenmue 3 exclusive on the Wii U but that’s neither here or there.

        But most importantly, the NX definitely needs a very strong launch lineup from the start. If the new Zelda is being ported from the Wii U to the NX and if Retro Studios is indeed making a brand new Metroid game for the NX and if both of those titles become launch titles that would make the NX an ” instant must-buy “. I want Nintendo to become the kings of the industry again but they’re gonna have to listen to gamers and the developers and give us the Nintendo home system that gamers everywhere have been waiting for

      21. “I want Nintendo to become the kings of the industry again…”

        As do I. But as Nintendo, who gets 3rd-party exclusives & games tailored to both the Nintendo subculture &, nowadays, the console culture as a whole. Where the NX remains distinct, & not just w/ exclusives & 1st party offerings, but also w/ its overall vibe. If Nintendo can somehow juggle the PC subculture & the AAA craze @ the same time as console-gaming, then great. But I doubt 3rd parties will return to the days of modest budgets, focused gameplay, puzzles, stylized aesthetics, genres (2D & 3D Platformers, turn-based console Strategy RPGs & JRPGs [‘least not in a big way], Arcade Racers, Survival Horror, etc.), & franchises (actual Final Fantasy, actual Resident Evil, actual Tomb Raider, Prince of Persia, Red Steel, Trauma Center, Ridge Racer, The World Ends W/ You, Brave Fencer Musashi, Crystal Chronicles, Fear Effect, Viewtiful Joe, Okami, MadWorld, NiGHTS, Crazy Taxi, Skies of Arcadia, Panzer Dragoon, Ogre Battle/Tactics Ogre, Psychonauts, etc.). PC/PS3/PS4/360/X1 were/are treated largely the same, & very few genres remained. Even Nintendo themselves seem to have abandoned F-Zero, Wave Race, Sin & Punishment, Cpt. Rainbow, & is too democratic re Shadow of the Eternals. & as much as I like indies & how they can make so much more w/ less & sustain the fundamentals, I want their style to be taken to the next level, w/ out getting caught up in AAA budgets, photorealism, hardcore audiovisuals, FPSes & Sandboxes, & a glut of cutscenes. The way the landscape was before the drastic shift in 7th gen; colorful, varied, focused gameplay, & sometimes flat-out bizarre, & all from 3rd parties w/ lucrative brands & industry clout. Seems the advances of technology (digital download, DLC, microtransactions, patches) somehow made all that too expensive or lacking in über profit. So what used to come w/ a game is now sold separately. “As we celebrate mediocrity, all the boys upstairs want to see, how much you’ll pay for what you used to get for free”

        But who am I to voice my opinion? I am a niche gamer, fated to be in the minority. Except, maybe I swam close to the mainstream in 6th gen, when multiplats felt right & 3rd-parties still adhered to fundamentals & even the West adhered to Japanese gaming philosophy. Yet, the mainstream drifted away, & I was buoyed by Wii (games like Red Steel, MadWorld, No More Heroes, Muramasa, Castle of Shikigami, The Last Story, etc.), Wii U, & handhelds.

        Oh well. The industry, this institution, neither wants or needs me. Maybe I’ll be a PS2 gamer for 9th gen. Afterwards, I’ll just focus more on reading instead of gaming. Most of my friends stopped gaming seriously in high school, & started drinking, socializing, playing pool & mobile games seriously. The only friend who continues to game seriously abandoned Nintendo consoles after high school (though he only had an NES himself & despite his college friends reminiscing about playing N64 games @ their dorm). Playing PS2 @ his house was great (though I felt I had the superior version of Soul Calibur II). But playing PS3 & PS4 just showed how different of gamers we are. & even playing 360 @ his house, & Xbox @ another’s was strange to me. I’m certainly the only 1 of my friends who researches, posts, & plays games the most. But if it ain’t “adult” or “realistic”, it means nothing to them, & most everyone else. A sign of the times. I can’t trust anyone over 30 for what’s cool, not even myself. Or under 30 for that matter. @ least books are, mostly, less expensive & offer deeper meaning.

      22. Oh, I think Nintendo’s problem is less a power issue & more a clash of subcultures. 3rd parties & their PC/PlayStation/Xbox went in a different direction. & those who started gaming during & after the shift know nothing or little about what came before. They don’t really care. If Nintendo is to compete w/ PC/PS/X & garner that audience, I think they’ll have to become them, or leave much of themselves behind. Perhaps the masses never cared for Nintendo to begin w/, though I’m certain gamers still care about the console subculture, even if it’s most relegated to VC, PSN, & LIVE Arcade. But where are their cries & condemnation of 3rd parties? Has it all gone into crowd funding for indies?

        Again, I’m just a niche gamer. & apparently niche when it comes to music, books, TV, & films/movies, too.

      23. At this point, it’s difficult to fathom PSOne -crowd to have any interest in NX, 3rd-parties included or not. They have their own exclusives, and they already have 3rd party support, Nintendo-exclusives did not make them invest in Wii U, so why would they invest in NX? Most of the high-spending enthusiast -crowd is already invested in other platforms.

        Nintendo needs something extraordinary with NX. As I can’t come up with anything innovative, I would suggest making a ridiculous powerhouse, a $1000 machine that could compete against the next gen from Sony and MS, and keeping the Wii U going alongside for another 3-5 years. Make their own games with Wii U in mind, and bring them to NX as well, and let 3rd parties worry about harnessing the power of the NX. The initial market would be small, but it would be huge compared to next gen competition when they launch, and by then would be similar price.

I tried for so long to explain to everyone individually which mistakes Nintendo was making, spending hours arguing and not being able to make them see reason, but Nintendo did one thing I never was able to. They proved me right. That’s something. I mean, I don’t care that people NOW agree with me. I think it’s too late, but I’m glad people are finally holding Nintendo responsible. One thing I fear is that Nintendo will buy their loyalty by announcing few great games for NX and then dragging them throughout the entire generation like they did with the Wii U. Some games like Xenoblade, Yoshi or Zelda were announced back in January 2013 and are still not out. I mean, that shit is absurd, but fanboys have been showing off with those games like they’re out since then. WHAT!?

        Nintendo will do the same with NX, but this time, I hope, people are going to see reason. If Nintendo fails with NX. If it is a hybrid. If it is another gimmicky console. They’ll just go full mobile and never turn back. I don’t think a hybrid console has an audience. I don’t think gimmicks have an audience anymore. Nintendo has to either embrace Hardcore gamers or Casual gamers and knowing them, I think we both know which they’ll choose.

        Like some are saying, they’re really going to have to wow people with what they have planned. If it’s far off from the competitors again, and not in a good way. I can see the same crappy third party situation, happening all over again.

    Great job nintendo, this is how to treat your real fans! thanks for all these years of joy but you’re officially dead to me

    1. I would consider you a true fan then, and not a fanboy. You see what’s really going on and not excusing it. I applaud you sir. Nothing wrong with stating your frustrations about them as many here would like you to think. They screwed us yesterday big time straight up and simple. A fanboy would defend yesterday. And I’ve already had an anonymous person try and defend it. They are the reason nintendo pulls this stuff cause they let it happen and excuse it with open arms. Thank you for not being one of those people.

      1. How many people here are pure fanboys by your definition. I haven’t seen many people defend Nintendo on this. They seem to have lost in the hardest of the hardcore from this stunt. Amiibos need to go away. I personally won’t be buying nx any time soon unless its an addon to the wii u. If not then it’ll probably be a long time before i even consider it. Unless they find a way to get it to me for about 100 bucks

      1. Yea. It will take far more than metroid to make up for this. NX the system itself better blow us the fuck away let alone the games on it. And unless it makes ps4 look like last gen, it’s not enough. I have to buy an extra system just to get one on par with everyone else? Fuck that noise.

      2. What I’ve been saying. They’ve really put themselves in a bad position, because it’s going to be hard for them to make a system better than the PS4 and Xbox One this early on, or if anything it will be the same. Which won’t be that good, either.

        Like I also said. God forbid if Sony and Microsoft announce something in between then. Even if they do make a more powerful system than the PS4 and Xbox One, they will be screwed again, later on when Sony and Microsoft shortly announce their newer consoles.

        I really hope this hybrid crap doesn’t turn out to be true, either. I personally think that would make it an even worse situation. Again an innovative idea, that doesn’t necessarily translate all that well in the real world at the moment. The tech just isn’t there yet, and a hybrid system will suffer on both sides.

        I don’t want a mediocre console/handled, for the sake of it being a hybrid.

      3. Exactly… I have no problem with people wanting, or being interested in the NX. But after all this, you think they would know a little better, to at least maybe wait a bit before jumping right in again.

        One game is not going to change my perception on all the mistakes Nintendo has been making over the years.

  7. Nintendo always drops off console support far too early. Wii U was having a good run. If we got Metroid, Zelda, Animal Crossing and a couple more games, it would have a respectable library.

    At this point… it’s looking pretty grim for the Wii U. Sad to say it’s finally settling down as a failure in terms of sales AND value. Without a good backlogue like the Gamecube has, it’s going to leave behind a piss poor legacy.

    Really poor decision making on Nintendo’s part.

    1. I really wanted Animal Crossing too… Goodness that reveal had me enraged. Get everyone all excited at the beginning, then you see it’s nothing but a virtual board game.

      They should just call them bored games, cause they’re fucking boring… Sorry, that was stupid. Lol.

  8. I’ve been a huge Nintendo fan since the SNES days, but yesterday was the straw the broke the camel’s back. I don’t own a Wii U (thank goodness), but it pisses me off seeing Wii U owners being screwed over by Nintendo’s pathetic business practices. They really *really* need to get their act together. Once I get enough money, I’m sticking with a 3DS. It’s been selling well, has many more games than the Wii U, and actually has third party support.

    The NX better blow everyone out of the water, or else Nintendo is done. And it better last for years to come, because what’s going to happen when the NX has been out for several years while the next generation of consoles finally begins again?

  10. I’ll have to disagree with some here that the Wii U’s library won’t be respectable by the time it’s dumped. A Metroid wouldn’t have helped. As a person who’s Wii U 3rd party stash way outnumber’s my 1st party stash, Wii U’s got A LOT of solid titles under its belt for a flop, & though nothing new’s been shown at E3, We still have some stuff to collect before it dies

    1. Starfox
    2. XCX
    3. Fatal Frame
    4. FE x SMT
    5. Harvest Moon
    6. Mighty No.9
    7. Bloodstained
    8. Zelda
    9. Mario Tennis
    10. Yoshi Wool
    11. Mario Maker
    12. Animal Crossing Rip off
    13. Project Giant Robot
    14. The other Project something something…

    I’m sure there will be more than this too. One or two, maybe a handful. Wii U already has a good library, & there has to be SOMETHING in the games I just listed you’d play. I’d buy 8 of the 14 I just listed. That’s a decent stack. If I put those with all the others I own & wanna buy, I’d say Wii U has one of the most respectable libraries for a flop I’ve ever seen in my life, probably second only to GCN. The thing’s a damn failure & the OS+features suck ass (except for that sweet browser) but you definitely can’t trash its library lol.

    1. Dude. “Bloodstained” isn’t coming out until 2017. By that point, the Wii U will be totally unsupported. Trust me, I’m in the same boat – I might redeem my digital copy on my PS4 instead, but I have a 1GB hard-drive plugged into what is quickly becoming an obsolete console.

  11. Um… he didn’t say it WILL be on NX. He said IF they started making it now, it wouldn’t be done until the NX comes out or later. He didn’t even say they were making it. In fact, he confirmed they didn’t even start on it yet.

  12. You guys need to just QUIT!!!! The Wii U is not dead!!! I’m looking at 30 of the hottest games available To which I currently own.
    I know you want a new Metroid Prime. Hell, I WANT ANOTHER METROID PRIME MORE THAN ANYBODY!! But apparently its not coming. Nintendo could put out a new 2D Metroid to play on the Wii U.
    But we’ll just have to wait.

    Oh! & for the record…….HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU, THE SO CALLED NINTENDO FANBASE, ASKED FOR GAMES WHICH WERE BROUGHT OUT ON THE WII U……ONLY TO HAVE YOU GUYS NOT SHOW SUPPORT & PURCHASE THE GAME LET ALONE A SYSTEM?!

    If you’re ready to, ahem…& I quote: ABANDON SHIP! Then by all means just go! Stop talking & get the fuck outta dodge! I’ll enjoy Super Mario Maker, Yoshis Wolly World, Super Smash Bros, SPLATOON, Devils 3rd, Star Fox Zero, Mario Tennis, Xenoblade Chronicles, Hyrule Warriors, Beyonetta 1 & 2, Zombi U, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Super Mario Bros U, Captain Toads Treasure Tracker, Kirby & the Rainbow Curse, NEXT YEARS THE LEGEND OF ZELDA ON WII U! & a host of other games.

  13. I’m sorry but even if this were true and the real Metroid Prime or successor is coming to NX as a launch title, I’m not jumping in. Nintendo fucked it up for me and now I’m no longer supporting shit from them anymore and I don’t give a shit how good this next game or NX will be. I’m fucking done.

  14. I could see what nintendo is doing here.. great games will be coming to the wii u console( maybe, even a price cut before the holidays) why rush the next home console.. When you could be ahead of sony and Microsoft, when code name Nx does drop( at least a year or two ahead of the next gen consoles) think about it?

  15. to be honest some criticise MS and Sony but they had give more support to they fans when it comes to console release.as far as I am see it, the first year PS4 and Xboxne came out, lot of games were … even now are release for PS3/PS4 and XB360/XB1. Nintendo should release Metroid for both version Wii U and NX (whatever it is)
