Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has said that Nintendo is well aware of the desire amongst fans to see a proper new installment in the Metroid series. “Look, we know that the fans want a straight Samus Aran game," Fils-Aime say in an interview with Kotaku. "We also know that the best way to launch a game like that is to surprise and delight them, to give them a launch date, in an environment like this let them play it vs. what other companies do which is to announce a project that you may not see for 5 or 6 years. "It’s just not the way we do things," he added. "We know the community wants to see a straight-up Metroid game. We know it." We’ve been looking for a proper Metroid game since Other M in 2010, which wasn’t highly regarded with most fans. Most fans are interested in another game in the Prime series of the Metroid games. Federation Force kinda looks interesting, but it’s no Metroid Prime 4.
