Animal Crossing developer Katsuya Eguchi, a Nintendo veteran and producer on upcoming Wii U projects, has spoken to Kotaku about an unannounced Metroid title for the Wii U. Whilst it appears as though Eguchi was simply musing about the title, it’s extremely likely that there is a new Metroid game in the works at Nintendo. Well, he clearly knows more about the game than we do. What would you like to see from a new Metroid title on Wii U?
Eguchi said: “I can’t give you any details now,” he said, “but I’m sure there will be a new Metroid release making use of the new controller, not just to control Samus and her ship but also to give the player a new source of information. Maybe the player is looking at the screen but has the information that they need to defeat the enemy in their hands.” Maybe you could hold the Wii controller up to the screen and scan your enemy, I suggested. “You could look through the screen and scan your enemy and find where it’s weakspot is.”
