It's now offical, Metroid Prime 2 is in development. But will Samus be playing Volleyball?
It's been fairly widely known that Retro Studios went right back to work after their Louie Award Winning Metroid Prime was released, and we were told that it was to be a sequel to Metroid Prime. Now Nintendo has made it official, as the game is now listed on their website.
No details are known at this time, and we don't know if Prime 2 will pick up after the first Prime game, or if it will continue the story line started in Metroid Fusion for the Game Boy Advance. All that is certain is that you won't be seeing Samus spiking a volleyball any time soon.
So what does this mean for Retro's other projects that were shelved in order to emphasize on Prime? It's hard to say at this point, as apparently the entire company is again focused on the sequel.
We'll have more details for you as soon as we can dig them up.
