In an interview with Eurogamer, long-time Metroid series director Yoshio Sakamoto spoke about Metroid: Samus Returns, and was asked about what sort of Metroid game he’d like to do next. While he didn’t say anything conclusive, he did give a few hints. Now that he’s created a remake, he’d like to take on a new game.
Do you have any idea where the series’ story might go in the future, what might happen?
Yoshio Sakamoto: It’s a tricky question to answer about the future. [Regardless], the Metroid series is not over [laughs]
What would you like to make next? Another remake or a fresh title?
Yoshio Sakamoto: We’ve just made a full-fledged remake so I’d rather take on something new. That’s my general approach, and this was a new challenge.
A sequel to Metroid Fusion that continues the story, perhaps? Only time will tell folks.
