    1. In the meantime, noone cares about Metroid Prime 4… 😞
      Though that shouldn’t be surprising. Famitsu is a Japanese magazine, after all, and from what I’ve heard, the Prime games were never too big in Japan.

      1. Not just the Prime games but Metroid as a whole from my recollection. It’s always been more of a franchise for people outside of Japan, especially the US.

      2. Maybe, although if I remember correctly, Metroid Prime was an even more severe case, because apparently Japanese people tend to not like first-person shooters very much or something like that. Can’t really find any sales numbers to back up my claims, though. The only info I could find was that the first Metroid was apparently the only one to surpass over a million sales in Japan (so at the very least, it’s likely that there’s at least some Japanese players who are nostalgic for Metroid, thanks to the first one).
