I've heard rumor about a sequel to Metroid Prime Corruption, although there are equally beleivable reports from nintendo that there will not be a sequel to this amazing game and that MP3 was the last of them. I highly doubt it, for I have beaten the game with 100% and have seen the special ending trailer, if you haven't here's the link.

I have high expectations for the game when it comes out (if it does). What do others think? Shout out!

I don't think there will be a MP4. Like you said, everything we've ever heard all says that 3 was the end for thePrimes. It's supposed to continue the story in other ways supposedly. I actually hope they leave the series alone until the next console comes out. MP3 was alright, but I wanna experience the game in HD next time around. Metroid deserves that imo.

Also, according to Retro...they are supposed to be taking a break from Metroid and working on something else. We've yet to see that project as well. They've lost a few key team members, so I just hope they found good people to replace them. I don't want another RARE case on our hands.

Yeh but seriously I won't be expecting an Metroid on console until...2012 at least...yeh I'll probably be dead by then so when one of you guys get it can you please die as well and join me in gamers heaven...and make sure to bring new metroid with you! lol.

Metroid Prime 4 is just one of those things you really want to happen, but probably never will.

I'd prefera Metroid game that focused on another adventure of Samus, be it 2-D or 3-D.

#5 Posted by FFCYAN (4925 posts) -

The Prime series was only meant to be a trilogy. Retro said they wanted to work on a different franchise as well. Whatever the next Metroid game will wind up being, it will not be similar to Prime for these reasons.

#6 Posted by ZumaJones07 (16458 posts) -
After three of them I think it's best they don't make a fourth. It has sort of lost the oomph it once had. New type of game pl0x.
#7 Posted by Sepewrath (28690 posts) -
The Prime series is over, but the Metroid franchise will continue, will we ever see Metroid Prime a.k.a Dark Samus again? I wouldn't bank on it, but Samus will be back hopefully not after another 10 year hiatus.

I don't think there will be a Metroid Prime 4. I just wonder what else they can do with the series.

There's always work for a bounty hunter to do, let alone a space bounty hunter. Space Pirate remnants, a new threat, perhaps even the return of Metroid Prime after years of hiding.

I would prefer a new 2D game

on wiiware or perhaps DS

#11 Posted by Tri-Enforcer (1898 posts) -

There may not be another Prime, but I'm sure there will be a continuation of Metroid following the events of MP3.

So if the next game follows immediately after MP3 then if would fall somewhere between Metroid Prime 3 and Metroid II (the one for Game Boy), since the "Prime" series as awholefalls in between the original Metroid and Metroid II. If Prime 3 is the last the Prime series, then I wander why Retro didn't bother to make a connection or allude to Metroid II. Perhaps this will happen in the next game---only itmay nothave 'Prime' in the title.

Keep in mind there is a chronology in terms of story:

Metroid/Metroid: Zero Mission (1986/2004) Samus travels through the caverns of the planet Zebes to stop the Space Pirates from exploiting the Metroid species for galactic domination. She confronts the cybernetic lifeform Mother Brain, as well as its guardians, Kraid and Ridley.[13] The 2004 remake Metroid: Zero Mission has an addendum to the storyline-after the defeat of Mother Brain, she was ambushed by Space Pirates and her ship crash-lands back on the surface. Stripped of her Power Suit and her ship destroyed, she is forced to infiltrate the Space Pirate mothership to find a way off the planet with only an emergency pistol for protection. After receiving a fully powered suit from deep within the Chozo ruins, she defeats Ridley Robot and escapes from the mothership before it self-destructs.[6][3]

Metroid Prime (2002) Approximately six months after the events of Metroid, Samus receives a distress signal in her new ship and travels to Tallon IV to stop the Space Pirates from exploiting a powerful radioactive substance known as Phazon. She discovers that the Chozo once settled on this planet, and their disappearance, as well as the emergence of Phazon, is due to a meteor impacting the planet decades ago. After ruining a Space Pirate mining operation and collecting the twelve Chozo Artifacts that allow access to the sealed impact crater, she confronts and seemingly destroys Metroid Prime, a Metroid that had been feeding off the Phazon Core of the meteor to increase in size and strength.[3]

Metroid Prime Pinball (2005) Metroid Prime Pinball is not a separate canon game in the Metroid storyline, but a retelling of the original Metroid Prime's story in pinball format.[18]

Metroid Prime Hunters (2006) When the Federation receives an unusual telepathic message, Samus is sent to the remote Alimbic Cluster in the Tetra Galaxy to uncover the rumored "Ultimate Power". Six rival bounty hunters that also heard the message actively attempt to secure the power before anyone else, including Samus. It transpires that the promise of ultimate power was actually a lie sent by the creature Gorea, sealed away by the Alimbics in a void between dimensions. Gorea attacks and sucks the energy and weapons from the hunters. After killing Gorea, Samus and the other hunters escape the cluster, empty handed, but alive.[3]

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (2004) Samus is sent to investigate the planet Aether after a squad of GF Marines was lost there. Samus finds them all dead, killed by several creatures, mostly by an evil race called the Ing. The Ing possess life forms, transforming them into monstrous "dark" versions of their former selves to wage war with Aether's dominant race, the Luminoth. Upon meeting the only remaining member of Luminoth (the others are frozen in stasis chambers, awaiting the destruction of the Ing), Samus learns Aether has been split into two dimensions by a meteor similar to the one that crashed on Tallon IV. Samus agrees to assist by recovering Aether's planetary energy (the "Light of Aether") from Dark Aether and thereby putting an end to Dark Aether and the Ing; however, Samus yet again encounters Metroid Prime, a heavily mutated being who had copied Samus' genetic code and stolen her Phazon suit at the end of her Tallon IV adventure, now in the form of Dark Samus.[3]

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (2007) Space Pirates shut down Galactic Federation computer systems and then engage in large scale combat in an attempt to further spread Phazon. Enormous Phazon-based seedships, known as Leviathans, impact planets and begin corrupting them with Phazon. Samus is charged with destroying the 'Phazon Seeds' and restoring functionality to the Federation's computer network. After purging three planets of Phazon (including the Space Pirate homeworld), the Federation locates the source of Phazon, planet Phaaze, which is made entirely of Phazon. As the Federation engages the Space Pirates in orbit, Samus enters the depths of the planet and succeeds at finally destroying Dark Samus and Phazon once and for all.

Metroid II: Return of Samus (1991) The Galactic Federation deems the Metroid species too dangerous to exist, and after their own failed attempts, employs Samus to travel to the Metroid homeworld, SR388, and exterminate the entire species. After killing every Metroid (among them Alpha, Gamma, Zeta, and Omega Metroids) and the Queen Metroid, Samus finds an unhatched egg behind the Queen Metroid's chamber. Before Samus fires on the Metroid egg, an infant Metroid hatches and believes Samus to be its mother. Helping her escape back to her ship, it is handed over by Samus to the research station, Ceres, for study.[13]

Super Metroid (1994) Before the scientists can conduct extensive research, Samus receives a distress signal from the research lab. She returns just in time to catch Ridley stealing the hatchling, having killed all of the scientists. She then follows Ridley to the rebuilt base on Zebes to stop the Space Pirates in their new plan to clone the Metroids and use them as a weapon. She kills the reborn versions of Ridley and Kraid, as well as new guardians Phantoon and Draygon, to confront Mother Brain once again.[3] Samus is nearly killed in the battle, but is saved, and her suit supercharged, by the Metroid hatchling, shortly before Mother Brain kills it.[13] Samus proceeds to destroy Mother Brain, and once again escapes Zebes during a countdown to an explosion. This time, the entire planet explodes, taking with it the few remaining cloned Metroids.

Metroid Fusion (2002) While acting as a bodyguard for researchers on the planet SR388, Samus is infected by a native creature known as the X Parasite, originally the prey of the Metroid species.[3] Doctors surgically remove portions of her Power Suit and cured the X infection with a vaccine created from the DNA of the baby Metroid from her previous adventure.[3] The vaccine not only allows her to survive the parasites, but to absorb them to power up her energy and weapons. She is then sent to investigate a disturbance at the Biologic Space Labs research station, where it is revealed that specimens from SR388 had been carriers of the X parasite. An X mimicking Samus, nicknamed the SA-X, has taken control of Samus's old suit, methodically breaking into different parts of the station to allow the X parasites to infect the entire station.[13] While trying to destroy the rapidly multiplying X as well as clones of the SA-X, Samus discovers a secret Federation Metroid breeding program. Realizing the threat this would pose, Samus' shipboard computer, Adam, suggests that she alter the station's propulsion to intercept with SR388 and destroy the planet as well to finally wipe out the X and Metroid populations.[3] After changing the station's propulsion, Samus races back to her ship, where she encounters an Omega Metroid combating the weakened SA-X she had fought earlier. The SA-X is quickly destroyed by the Metroid, and Samus absorbs the SA-X parasite to use her regained weapons to destroy the Omega Metroid and leave the station before it collides with SR388.[3]

There is an article in Gamesradar were they talk about some games mechanics to certain franchises, and they said that a Metroid game with the atmosphere of Dead Space would be totally awesome, and i'm agree, i mean, you are always the powerful hunter, ok, now imagine that you are in a space station and there are some nasty and more powerful enemies thatn you searching to hunt you, well, that's the idea.

IMO, a would love to see a new Metroid were Samus is now an enemie of the federation.

errm, take them from where they left? Samus is infected you know?And a rogue agent now.Im talking about the main Metroid storyline, not the Prime sidestory,which is pretty much over with.

#14 Posted by EpiphoneMan2008 (7169 posts) -
I just bought Metroid Prime 2 Echos JUST NOW!!! Irony at its best right there!
#15 Posted by danger_ranger95 (5584 posts) -

I could see Samus getting framed or something similiar to that. I think that would be a neat idea, but would most likely involve Dark Samus again, and I don't want to see her anymore.

#16 Posted by chocolate1325 (32463 posts) -

I highly doubt it the Prime series was only a trilogy.

#17 Posted by EpiphoneMan2008 (7169 posts) -
Then they should start another trilogy!
#18 Posted by just_nonplussed (4130 posts) -

it's best we don't get too much metroid. we'll just tire of it, like with MP3.

Metroid Prime is done, it's over, put it in an oven and set it to 500 degrees, take it out in 15 minutes, it's DONE. But that doesn't stop Nintendo from making another sidescroller Metroid game....

Agreed on this, but they could always make another Metroid series...........
#22 Posted by Sepewrath (28690 posts) -
I don't know why they would need a break, Samus is a flexible characters, the character can be used in a number of ways. I think they should stick to the 3D Metroids, I don't know why people beg for a 2D Metroid when all they are going to do is trash it for not being the reincarnation of Super Metroid. I think they really have something that works with the Metroid Prime style and they shouldn't deviate from it too much.
#23 Posted by fluffy_kins (2453 posts) -

metroid prime was an amazing trilogy.

but they should take a break from 3D metroids for a while. No sense in wearing it out.

I would like to see the next 3D metroid about mid next generation.

Metroid Prime is actually officially over, don't expect a "Metroid Prime 4: *insert sub-title here*" to come out. The Metroid Prime series was meant to be a trilogy that occured between the events of Metroid 3 and Metroid Fusion, so the next Metroid game they will come out with is Metroid 5. Trust my, I know what I'm talking about.

There's a Metroid 4 trailer on youtube. It's called Metroid: Dark Evolution-- first video under "related videos" in the Metroid Prime 3: Ending (100% bonus + credits) video (link provided by TC).

I doubt there's significant demand for yet another Prime game. They have to remodel the series once more.
#27 Posted by GabuEx (36552 posts) -

Personally, what I'd love to see is a more story-based Metroid game based on the events in the official Metroid manga that details Samus' origins from childhood up to the events in Zero Mission (which, by the way, is an absolute must-read for any hardcore Metroid fan - so much better than the lame Nintendo Power comics).

i'd love to see a new metroid taking from where fusion left off. i'm tired of gap-filling episodes.

#29 Posted by Mike1978Smith (2012 posts) -
The Prime series is finished. What we need now is Metroid 5.
#30 Posted by OreoMilkshake (12729 posts) -

#31 Posted by StanHQ (18 posts) -

Well...

The metroid prime series has finished but it could be a spin off. Or they could be a completely new saga.

Considering what happened in Metroid Fusion,there is the possibility that Samus will be a fugitive in Metroid V,and would be trying to escape from the Galactic Federation.

#33 Posted by Pyro767 (2305 posts) -
This may sound stupid, but judging from the ship in the 100% ending, the next game may have something to do with Sylux from hunters. By the way, I know about everyone is opposed to the idea, just reminding people that it is a possibility.

#36 Posted by Dgalmun (16263 posts) -
I really doubt that it will happen, but the series had a good run. But I think they'll start something else maybe a wiiware or Dsi remake for metroid. You never know what gaming companies are doing, they'll just tell people out of nowhere.

Yeah, just call it either the Metroid: Hollowed Soul or Metroid: The Justin Bailey Trilogy. It'd be a game where she crashlands on this mysterious planet and now alongside finding her powersuit, she'd have to find pieces to fix her ship so she can escape in time after the final boss is defeated (Have to have the classic Escape sequence) oh and Samus FINALLY meets the one and only, Justin Bailey.

Retro will return to the Metroid franchise eventually, but not for a long time, I expect at least a decade and there is no guarantee Retro will even last that long. Metroid Prime 4 will never happen.
