Question Are there any possibilities for a Metroid reboot? Or can it be brought back to life?

Before I get spammed to death, here's the drill and summary of how the series have ended:

Let's start with the very first Metroid, in this game Samus destroyed Kraid, Ridley and Mother Brain, who were aiming to use the Metroids to create the ultimate army and possess dominance over the galaxies and universes. Throughout the Prime series we saw how the Pirates evolved and their desire for universla domination, they would give their lives to accoplish such goal, we also saw how Samus defeated enemies powerful beyond belief, later Samus faced the Metroids and exterminated the race in Metroid II, where she destroyed the entire Metroid race with only one trace: the Baby. The Baby caused and sent Samus to her final battle aganst Mother Brain, she killed and sent to their demise to all of Higher Command, Ridley, Kraid, Phantoon, Dragoon and Mother Brain were all destroyed, along every single Space Pirate, and the Baby.

Samus later faces with Adam, in the Bottle Ship, where mysteries of her past were answered, but it only opened to many plotholes (such as the Chozo). The Metroids, somehow, were brought back to life, cloned, but in the end they were all destroyed again. Later came the last battle, in Metroid Fusion, where Samus faced many old foes once again, and a clone of herself, known as SA-X (Short of Samus X). As the final adventure, she lost the Power Suit, and now possesess the Omega Suit, and the last Metroid, Omega, was killed. But should the Metroid series should be rebooted or should it keep going with the same storyline?

Rebooted?

Now, you all wonder, why I say Metroid might need a reboot? Because the previous story was finished. For example:

Beginning- Metroid, Metroid Prime, Hunters, Echoes, Prime 3
Climax- Metroid II, Super Metroid
Ending- Metroid: Other M, Metroid Fusion

Metroid had quite an ending with Fusion, where Samus became literally invincible, but all Pirates were exterminated three times, there are no Metroids alive, there is no Metroid game without Metroids (Can there be Super Mario games without Goombas?) isince they are the purpose of the story. Something that can absolutely work is that Metroid gets a remake, where the story can be explained better, with different gameplay, or that it has a completely new beginning with a totally new story (obviously based on metroids).

Continuity

Can the Metroid series keep going with the same story? I personally think it's possible, there are a lot of plotholes, which Other M left us specifically, like:

-If Samus was supposedly raised by the Galactic Federation, why were the Chozo part of her story?
-Where are the Chozo? Where they exterminated?
<b>(Remember: The games don't follow the same story of the Metroid Manga)</b>
-Are there more cloned Metroids?
-Where are the Hunters?
-Who was riding the ship in the end of Prime 3?

Many other questions are still unanswered, which can potentially lead to new adventures for Samus, for example, the Wii U Metroid game can deal with the Chozo, whereas the Prime 3 ending can deal with the mysterious ship from 3, and as a direct sequel to Hunters, as it can be the ship is from Sylux. But, what are your thoughts? I personally think the series should answer those mysteries, because Metroid, unlike Super Mario and Legend of Zelda, has a progressive storyline.

Other M was not developed in house. Its story can be quite easily discarded.

Except Team Ninja said that Sakamoto was the one who did the story. So yes, Other M was pretty in-house.

Also I don't think Metroid should be rebooted. While it's situated on a continuity timeline somewhat like Zelda, it's so loose in its continuity to where a new game introducing new plot points could take place as early as in between Metroid and Metroid Prime.

I Agree Because Now That There Are Better Graphics I Think That If They Made A 2D Metroid Game It Could Last Longer(Cause They Would Have To Use Half The Data On The Disk To Make A 1st Person View) And Would Most Likely Have AWESOME Graphics.

It doesn't need a reboot. Other M just needs to be changed up or omitted entirely

Honestly....? Let's reboot it. I think the Prime games were a step in the direction of a complete reboot. I mean, with one game, Samus' character has been so fractured that if you try to go back to her old stoicism, it'd just look like a cop-out and a contradiction. On the other hand, if you keep going with the incessant inner monologues and shaking in fear from seeing old foes, then you're just destroying the character even further than what's shown.

What Samus needs to be is a reserved character, with walls of cynicism built snug around her like her Power Suit and only open to a select few. Maybe Adam, maybe Anthony, but not in the submissive way like she was in Other M. When confronted with enemies she thought were defeated, she shouldn't be frozen in fear, she should be angered and frustrated. Unleash herself upon her enemies. Why won't they just STAY DEAD, she may cry out, anger lashing out so badly that she uses weapons that she knows won't work on them. Only with the intervention of several comrades would she begin to cool off and think rationally again.

Samus needs to be an eternally cool and collected character, and when faced with a Ridley situation, it should be based entirely out of anger and hatred, not fear.
