The future of classic 2D Metroid rests on the support of consumers, according to the September 2017 issue of Game Informer magazine, in an article with series producer Yoshio Sakamoto. Sakamoto-san expresses that he would love to work on another 2D Metroid title, but it comes down to whether or not fans will be willing to buy Metroid: Samus Returns.
“Through the development of Metroid: Samus Returns, I was able to really grasp the possibility and fun of a 2D Metroid. Like when I finished the first game, if there is another opportunity to make another Metroid, that is something that I would love to do. Of course, that really depends on how much people really want to buy a 2D Metroid.”
Metroid: Samus Returns will release on the 15th September in North America and Europe!
