This is something that’s been a discussion point with some peers recently, and I was wondering if someone else had some extended thoughts regarding it.
What do we want out of the next Metroid Prime title?
I mean we can safely assume that it will be a first-person shooter with puzzle-solving elements like past Metroid prime titles… but could we also expect an overhaul at all? And to what extent? Will they throw everything out the window and make it a bejeweled-based action horror game? Or will they just abandon some Metroid traditions and maybe put in more of Prime 3’s ambitious but flawed cinematic cut-scenes? It’s hard to tell. Mostly cause I don’t know what I want either.
Breath of the Wild wowed me with it’s perfect blend of embracing old Zelda traditions, while experimenting with some wild (no pun intended) ideas. Can we expect the same of Metroid? Or will it perhaps just be a return to form with some typical but fun Metroid gameplay?
I am so excited for this game but we haven't seen a second of gameplay so far. Additionally, there was the rumor that Bandai Namco Singapore was developing the game, not a Nintendo first party developer. – Sean Gadus4 years ago
I think something akin to Metroid Prime 3 will be the best, and with plenty of planets and locations to explore. I would like something similar to Other M's action takedowns but with the gameplay of Prime. Although I have to wonder if they're going to have an emphasis on story like the 3rd. – platinummad4 years ago
