I saw this game listed on gameinformer.com and couple of other sites too. How come it wasnt mentioned? The page for it on GI is down right now btw.

Disappointingly, Metroid Dread was a no-show.

Metroid Hunters this Summer, Metroid Pinball Q4...Dread for next fall? They said the series director (of 2d Metroid adventures) was busy thinking of cool gameplay ideas for the DS hardware...

Fair enough. Wonder if they'll preserve the full sprite look if it, or incorporate polygons into the level and Samus designs...I'm sure it will look tremendously smooth tho, one of the DS' great strengths thus far.

Kind of off topic, but was this the only game not shown that was in the infamous GI article?

Sadly this was the game off that list I wanted to see the most. Wasn't it listed for the GBA anyway, that would kind of negate the idea of the director looking at the DS hardware.

*EDIT: OK, just checked and there was another game that didn't show Nintendo Tetris. Kind of funny considering that was another game I was looking foward to seeing. Yes I like Tetris that much. Also I was wrong about Dread being for the GBA, it is listed for DS.*

Personally it sounds like someone (1up?) has the exclusive on the game...Perhaps the same is for Ninty Tetris as well...

Dread is not far enough in development to be shown...the director and his team are currently still in the planning and idea phase...besides, theres got to be something for next E3, right?

1up is reporting that Metroid Dread may have been cancelled.  If true, this really sucks.  If not, 1up really sucks.  1up sucks regardless

Sub-topic:  Is it better to create a new thread for something like this, or to dredge up a topic from six months ago?

I just hope that there are still plans to release another 2D Metroid.
We NEED another 2D Metroid.
There just has to be some kind of plan for it, right?

In the latest Podcast from IGN.com, Nintendo DS editor Craig Harris was asked about the status of Metroid Dread. He responded saying that the game was too early to show previously [at E3 2005] and that it could be shown this year.


That's from trusty ol' N-Sider.

I just thought I'd post this tid bit, as I didn't see it anywhere else, and it is certainly welcome news. I myself am hoping for a 2-D with 3-D graphics game.

Mario, Zelda and Metroid too? Wow..

I remember Craig saying before also that it was still in development when there were rumours that it was cancelled.

That would be phenomenal. Screw these non-Metroid Metroid games! I don't care if both the pinball and FPS versions of Metroid are fun, I WANT REAL METROID! I want another 2D Metroid game that has effecient controls like Fusion/Zero Mission (does everything Super Metroid does with less buttons) and I want the scope/size of Super Metroid and I don't want my hand held throughout the game like Fusion and Zero Mission did and how Super Metroid DIDN'T. Screw you Adam! Screw you Chozo Statues! AND, I want it to be a true sequel. Metroid 5. Enough of this "inbetween Metroid 1 and 2" garbage.

And that, my friends, is how you make the best game ever.

Its good to hear that the game might be actually, you know, real. I bought recently Zero Mission and Im having a blast with it, and Im all for a new 2D metroid, but I personally love the cube Metroid games, and Im sad that the iteration of prime for the DS was a multiplayer spinoff, because we might never see a 3D real metroid game for the DS, and is a shame because the DS offers such incredible controls for first person perspective.

"I myself am hoping for a 2-D with 3-D graphics game."

NO!  Damn it! I HATE the way that looks.  Worst of both worlds.

Anyway I'm happy this game hasn't been canned.  2D Metroid is one of the greatest game "formulas" in existance and I wouldn't want it to die just yet.  There's something about 2D Metroid that just feels right and even Castlevania can't quite recreate it.

It looks good when it's done correctly and it offers much more versatility for the game's graphics.  New Super Mario Bros in it's current state looks phenominal.  I see no reason why something like Metroid Dread can't go the same route.

I imagine the game will be in sprites, if they've already made a fully 3D game for the system.
I have no huge preference, but I think I'd like to see it in sprites.

Sprites are usually more precise than 3d models because sprites never exceed the bounding box. With Metroid's walljumps you will need that precision.

it could be a mix of 3D and 2D like mischief makers, the game pulled it fine in my opinion.

About another Metroid in 2D...
I think Metroid in 2d reached it's limit in Super Metroid.  Fusion was good, but it's no Super.
I hope Metroid 5 has a good story, something Nintendo isn't very good at.

It's weird both Metroid(Ending of Fusion) and Zelda(ending of Wind Waker) are at a crossroads in terms of story.  Will Nintendo use these opportunities to go in a new direction?
