Nintendo SPD Production Group 3’s Kensuke Tanabe — producer on overseas projects such as Metroid Prime, Excitebots and Punch-out!! — believes there’s room for another game in the Metroid Prime series.
“We are always planning to make new games in the Metroid Prime series. Depending on the timing and the situation, we cannot deny the possibility of realising it on DS or DSi,” Tanabe said to Official Nintendo Magazine in an interview .
Do we really need another Metroid Prime game now that Dark Samus is finally dead? I tend to think of “Prime” as a single incident (albeit an important incident) in Samus’s career. It doesn’t seem like there would be any good reason to re-visit it, unless by “Prime” Tanabe simply means another first-person game… or another multiplayer game similar to Hunters.
