Yosuke Hayashi, the head of Team Ninja has told VG247 that the company would like to work with Nintendo again in the future. VG247 approached Hayashi-san in regards to a potential sequel to the controvercial Metroid: Other M title, to which he 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.”
These comments are nothing new from Hayashi-san, Metroid Headquarters caught up with him at A-kon 2011 where he made a similar statement.
Almost two years on, Metroid: Other M is still a touchy subject for some fans who feel the game didn’t deliver the experience they were hoping for. What is next for the Metroid series? All we can do is speculate and see what happens.
