For Team Ninja who designed the game in partnership with Nintendo, they wouldn’t mind revisiting Metroid is Nintendo is up for it.
In response to whether Metroid: Other M may receive a sequel any time soon, Dead or Alive 5 director Yosuke Hayashi responded, “Unfortunately Metroid is kind of out of our league as it’s Nintendo’s game, but we’re still in close touch with co-creator Sakamoto-san, so we want to do something with him moving forward definitely. It really depends on what he wants to do with the game first.”
Would anyone be willing to play a new Metroid? That’s a given, but something tells us they may not gravitate too close to anything bearing the “Other M” identity any time soon.
