General Metroid
« on: January 30, 2016, 08:35:01 PM »

I was digging around and couldn't find one because I just read an online thing about the Metroid storyline

The only reason I can think of is because it doesn't sell. Which is bologna, because if they released a new game now (note: not Federation Force, it may be okay but it's not Metroid), it would be an instant goldmine with proper hype buildup.

I just can't believe they'd rather release the same Mario game 3 times than try to make another Metroid sidescroller

What I'd really like is a Metroid II remake. If done right, it would be amazing.

is there anyone who can give a general summary of each of the games without it being too in-depth?  I been looking online and reading lore, which is great, but it doesn't make much sense when you only know alittle bit about metroid

everything
just a storyline of the games without going too far into backstory stuff, so that I can act like I've played them all

Just play them all, you'll thank me later. You can grab Metroid Prime Trilogy from the eShop or maybe Zero Mission if you want to start with 2D before trying 3D. :J

Zero mission comes first chronologically anyway.

Where does metroid fusion and metroid prime come in?  Those are the only two I've played enough to know what's going on

The Metroid timeline is nothing like the Zelda timeline. It goes in order and doesn't fuck up as much.

Still hoping that we eventually get a Metroid 5…

nice to know they remembered this is a series

I know metroid is a 3D game now but I really wouldn't mind another sidescroller

I take it you're not much of a fan of the Prime series?
