Metroid Dread has been a triumphant return to form for the Metroid franchise after Metroid: Other M and Metroid Federation Force. The producer behind Metroid Dread, Yoshio Sakamoto, has taken part in an interview with technology publication CNET where he was asked a number of questions about the Metroid series. The site put to him that as we are going to see the Super Mario Movie debut in December next year, a Metroid movie will be very interesting to see from Nintendo. Mr. Sakamoto said that it certainly would be, and that he personally hopes it becomes a reality someday.
CNET: Speaking of the recent Super Mario movie announcement, a Metroid movie would be interesting. I have no idea who’d be cast as Samus.
Sakamoto: So that is something very interesting. Personally, I hope that it does become a reality someday.
