Shigeru Miyamoto has said the possibilities for Metroid using Wii U’s GamePad “could be really fantastic.” Speaking with IGN, Miyamoto said, hypothetically, with Metroid, it was easy to imagine interesting implementations for Wii U. “I think that having another screen with the gyro built in really gives you a lot of interesting opportunities for development,” he said, “and we can bring a lot of our games to life in a completely unique way with that. There’s certainly a lot that you could do there for that game.” However, the game he would “personally” really love to see land on Wii U is Star Fox, although he wouldn’t say whether it or Metroid were in development for the new console.

“The story for Other M was definitely the product of Mr. Sakamoto at Nintendo. We definitely worked with them on the project, but that was all him. For NG3, we’ve worked with Masato Kato to create our own story. It’s going to be different in a lot of ways. There are definitely things we learned from Other M by working with Mr. Sakamoto and with Nintendo that we’ve applied to the NG development. The actual story that you will experience here, however, will have a very different feel. A ‘Team Ninja’ feel, you might say.” – Team Ninja’s Yosuke Hayashi to G4 regarding the stories in Other M and NG3.

Metroid series producer Kensuke Tanabe has told Kotaku that Retro Studios are considering adding multiplayer to future titles in the Prime series.
Hear that kids? He said series.
“As all I take part in is the Prime series, I am not capable of commenting on the whole Metroid series,” said Tanabe. “But we will keep considering multiplayer for the Prime series. For instance, I think I can come up with some unique ideas using the Morph Ball, which is a specific skill of Samus’.
Good to hear.
Tanabe goes on to discuss loads of development stuff, and lightly touches on the “mystery” title the teams is working on.

During a studio tour of Retro Studios in Texas, IGN chatted a bit with president and CEO Michael Kelbaugh about the possibility of a return to the Metroid franchise.
“I think Retro will always be associated with the Metroid Prime franchise and who knows, maybe we’ll do another one someday,” Kelbaugh said.
However, he did note that for now the team was aware it would only be responsible for a trilogy.
Meanwhile, Kelbaugh said that Retroid is working on other projects now in order to “refresh” its development team.
Maybe is always better than no. More through the link.

Nintendo, Team Ninja, and Tecmo were so secretive regarding the development of Metroid: Other M, that Koei had no idea it existed for some time.
Even when the two companies merged, Tecmo was not allowed to disclose the project per the arrangement with Nintendo.
No word on when the game became common knowledge.
More over on Siliconera.
