Timing would certainly work. Intelligent Systems must have something in the works because they didn't actually contribute that much of their staff to Three Houses so you're looking at a new Wario Ware or Paper Mario game in all likelihood. And they did do a WarioWare game on the 3DS in 2018.

Also, MercurySteam finished up Samus Returns in 2017 so if Nintendo put them onto Metroid 5 after that the development time could fit. The only thing against that is Samus Returns didn't sell that well at (around 500k) so if Nintendo were testing the market with a remake before a true sequel, they might have been put off.


metroid 5? surely we passed that years ago

I believe all the primes games are set before Super Metroid (maybe earlier) Metroid 5 would be set after Fusion which is 4, with Super being 3.

Given that the only two Metroids i have played are Super and Fusion, this news would be rather good if true.

I'd like to get excited by a new Paper Mario game but I wonder if TTYD was catching lightening in a bottle because since that point they've generally gone downhill. I'll probably still buy it though but that says more about my buying habits than any confidence in the final game.

The problem with the Mario RPG series since Super Paper Mario and Bower's Inside Story is that they are no longer allowed to use anyone bar Toads as companion characters or world building characters. With all the games prior they were able to create new and interesting characters, that's not allowed anymore as Miyamoto has forbidden people being creative with the Mario series of characters outside of the core Mario series :roll:

The sooner he strawberry floats off the better.

In case anyone was wondering, this was the exact quote from Tanabe:

“Mario is not an IP that I created. From the position of someone borrowing the IP, I think it’s only natural to show respect to the person who created it, and let that feeling of respect guide us. When Miyamoto-san, the father of Mario, asks us, ‘Could you make a game with only characters from the Mario family?’ I think it’s only natural for us to give it our best shot. In other words, we are not currently thinking about returning to old NPCs.

“Incidentally, I do think Color Splash may have proven that we can still make a game entertaining, even if our original characters don’t appear as NPCs. And with that belief, we will keep on continuing to do our best.”



Given Nintendo let Ubisoft put Mario in a game with guns and rabbids to great success, I'm hoping this position has changed.

Miyamoto is a great man and never someone I would tell to ‘strawberry float off’. That said, I think some of his stances (every franchise must innovate, this) have stymied some franchises (F-Zero and Star Fox being the other two). A great man can be wrong sometimes and still be great.

He has this cuddly uncle image and has come up with some great stuff but he has also apparently been a big bellend at times to people if you look it up , most of what I've seen saying that's come from rare employees and Argonaut employees.

I'd like to think he is the nicest guy ever but most of what we see is what Nintendo want us to see.

A great man can be a git and still be great (in some ways) too. Depends on how great what he does is and how much of a git he is, I suppose.

Anyway, the man is primarily a gameplay star and should be kept well away from story-focussed adventures to be honest.

Regardless, Metroid 5 is just what the fanbase uses to refer to a new Metroid 2D sidecroller

On the subject of F-Zero, I saw someone somewhere suggest F-Zero 99...now while I don't think everything doesn't need a battle royale, F-Zero online races with sudden death and 99 players would be awesome. Of course, 99 racers one one track online in a Nintendo game is somewhat unrealistic...

I reckon F-Zero 9 sounds do-able and excellent, though.
