Nintendo of America President Discusses Metroid, Mother 3 on Switch

Reggie Fils-Aime also promises "regular cadence" of game launches.

A new Metroid? The long-awaited sequel to Mother aka Earthbound finally releasing in the West? There’s nothing to announce currently but Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is more than aware about “key IP” that fans want to see.

Speaking to GameSpot, Fils-Aime said, “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.”

Another interesting to note is how the Switch won’t have “large gaps” between releases with the focus being ib “a regular cadence of critical launches to drive the install base and keep the consumer base engaged.”

Nintendo Switch is out on March 3rd so we’ll find out just how likely that is in the coming months.
