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.”
