Typically when I'm at work I listen to some music to get me in the right frame of mind. I got tired of the same old stuff that I listen to, so I decided to dive into some video game music. I had completely forgotten about the Metroid Prime games and honestly, Metroid as a whole. Other M was a good game, but definitely fell short of my expectations - and coming off of the Metroid Prime Trilogy, that was a tough pill to swallow.
So then, once I hit play on that Phendrana Drifts track my mind was started going crazy clamouring for a new Metroid title. Maybe it's age, but 2007 doesn't feel like it was that long ago (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption), but that's seven years ago! That said, Other M too is only four years old.
I'm hoping that the new Metroid game comes out on the 3DS because I feel like they can do a lot more with 3D than they can do with the Wii U right now. Make it a 2D game again like the old games, though I'd rather have it err on the side of Super Metroid than Metroid Fusion. I can only imagine what they can do with the 3D effect in a Metroid game and with some StreetPass and touch screen features - it can be pretty unique.
I'm definitely getting a Metroid itch and I'm hoping to see the series return this generation. Though ultimately I don't care if it's on the 3DS or the Wii U, I just want a new Metroid game -- sooner rather than later. What about you?
