|“Oh, so earlier today I got asked about Mother 3; maybe you can ask me about Metroid. Look, again, I am proud as an executive with Nintendo to say that we look at all of the boards and all of the comments and we really have a good understanding of what our consumers want. And believe me, we take that to heart as we work to create content. So I have nothing to announce–here. But we are aware that there are some key IP that consumers just can’t wait for the next true installment in that franchise’s legacy. Suffice it to say, we’re aware of it, and talk to me in a year and let’s look back and see what’s happened.”|
I’d still expect Mother 3 (or whatever the western title will be) to be announced/released this year, maybe at E3 or whenever they give more details about the Switch’s Virtual Console. As for Metroid, well who knows? Could be a surprise collaboration with another developer, we’ll know “in a year” as Reggie says heh.
