Nintendo fans are always pestering Nintendo of America COO Reggie Fils-Aime about the Metroid series and the potential of a western release of Mother 3. In the past, he has teased fans of both franchises with the possibility of future announcements. However, the only recent thing to come from either of these series is Metroid Prime: Federation Force and EarthBound Beginnings. In a recent interview with GameSpot, Reggie teased us yet again and told fans to ask him about Metroid and Mother 3 a year from now.
“Oh, so earlier today I got asked about Mother 3; maybe you can ask me about Metroid. Look, again, I am proud as an executive with Nintendo to say that we look at all of the boards and all of the comments and we really have a good understanding of what our consumers want. And believe me, we take that to heart as we work to create content.
“So I have nothing to announce–here. But we are aware that there are some key IP that consumers just can’t wait for the next true installment in that franchise’s legacy. Suffice it to say, we’re aware of it, and talk to me in a year and let’s look back and see what’s happened.” — Reggie Fils-Aime
