Yes yes YES YES A THOUSAND FUCKING TIMES YES!!!!
How about when they make the next Metroid game, it wouldn’t be about Samus at all.
How about if it were about the ancient Chozos, exploring their history, culture and society when they were at their peak. Not to mention them being originally proud, civilized warrior race, it would easily translate into an action-adventure game too. And hey, who doesn’t want to play as this badass:
Though, to make this game really work would require the combined forces of everyone who has ever been involved with Metroid lore. Retro Studios, Sakamoto and co., maybe even Team Ninja.
But really, when has money and manpower been a problem with Nintendo?
I support playing as a bird alien. The bird aliens are awesome.
I’ve seen this tossed around various websites, but the idea is generally the same - Samus finds out that The Galactic Federation has been secretly providing The Space Pirates with information and weapons in return for data about the Metroid. Since the Space Pirates have been attempting to clone Metroids and have encountered Metroid Prime itself, the Federation could have plans to use the information to create a new metroid of some sort. Samus of course finds out, and now has to fight both the federation and the space pirates .
Of course, the plot could stretch out with various games in the timeline, but what i thought personally would be neat, is if they brought up some new Bounty Hunters or allies within the Federation and even Space Pirates to help samus . That shit would be cool as fuck, at least IMO
Ah yeah, good old Metroid Dread! Maybe it can make a comeback, sort of like the Mysteryious Kirby Game that began life on the Gamecube and finally came out as Kirby’s Return to Dreamland.

As for me, well! I’d like to see something post-Fusion, personally, whether or not it’s Samus vs. the Feds or if they just handwave in a trial in the past or something. Maybe some new threat from the Space Pirates or a brand new foe that forces the Feds to pardon her and Adam at the end of the game? And I’d like to see some nice Metroidvania getting-lost action from at or near the start of the game - slow starts are all well and good, but if she is being chased, maybe she can drop off at an uncharted planet or something. She got shot down and that’s why she lost a lot of Suit abilities?
I’d really like to see more exploration of her Metroid powers, too. Something in the style of Prime 3’s energy-siphon Grapple Beam, perhaps!
Oh, also! Metroid II remake. I’m playing the game itself on GBA right now and really loving it. Heck, just include an in-game map of Metroids and items to find, maybe update the graphics to Zero Mission-style, and I’d be satisfied.
Theres been all kinds of metroid games, some ideas I wouldn’t mind seeing would be a star wars battlefront-like game, a metroid war game, in which both sides can be playable, there would be the galactic federation side with different troops and vehicles with samus as the one of the main characters, maybe add some new bounty hunters for both sides, while the space pirates would also have different ranks to play as and there own vehicles. the main character for the pirates would of course be ridley, the levels would be new and old, planets and space stations, and just like battlefront there would be space battles and the game would take place in different eras between the games already establshed, maybe one era would be before the first game, another set between the three year gap of the first and prime,one after the prime trilogy and one after fusion, different eras of different main characters like regular and fusions samus and reguler ridley and meta ridley, also a fully completed mecha ridley as a playable character would be awesome. I love all the games whether its a side-scroller, a first person shooter or a game like other m. As for a film I think it should be completly based on the original game or zero mission and the manga,like it starts out as an origin story and one of revenge of samus against the space pirates, I really hope a game like this and a film will happen in my life time. I am interested in your opinions on this and would like to here your ideas as well.
Well, why not start a discussion? Submit your ideas and hopes for the next Metroid, everybody!
(And keep it friendly. I may have some very strong Opinions about Other M, but I keep them off the blog. If you have Opinions about it or other games in the series, leave them out of your fantasizing. Remember that this is a Metroid celebration blog, and have fun!)
