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

What do you guys think of what Reggie said? Do you think we’ll see a new Metroid or Mother 3 for the Nintendo Switch in the next year? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Our Verdict

Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
