Then we've shown the Metroid franchise the exact same amount of respect that Nintendo has.
Not at all the point I was making, but sure
the signs point much stronger to them gearing up more for the NX being a new handheld next year then home console.
While not definitive proof:
"We’ve also said publicly that we are already hard at work on our next home console and that’s another element we’ll be talking about much later."
“If we started for Wii U now, it would likely take three years or so. So it would likely now be on Nintendo’s NX console. It’s a long time but it would need to include a lot of content, which would take a lot of work on the development side.”
That's two people in separate interviews during the same week who seemed to slip up and call NX Nintendo's next home console.
In any case, it doesn't make sense to make the next Metroid Prime on Wii U. Whatever NX is benefits far more from having a a brand new solo Metroid adventure on it sooner rather than later.
