Thumbs down Metroid director "not returning to the series"


Radiohead wouldn't play 'Creep', Christopher Nolan won't make another Batman and Metroid co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto doesn't think he'll be returning to that series (or even WarioWare and Rhythm Tengoku) any time soon.

As reported by CVG, Sakamoto, whose latest project is the sublimely strange Tomodachi Life, was asked in an interview whether he saw himself returning to the more traditional games he helped get off the ground in future:

"I do not intend to do so. There might [currently] be various tasks I might be involved in with past series. However, even if so I would always like to introduce new entertainment and new fun to those series. I would like to satisfy fans of those series, but also working with other talented individuals I would like to create entertainment that's completely different and that brings new emotions. I would like to challenge myself in those unique directions."

His reasoning is a noble one - Sakamoto wants to be the guy who introduces games to a whole new audience:
"This might be indirect, but if we can make new types of gamers enjoy video games for the first time through Tomodachi Life, then they might eventually become interested in the more conventional games. I think we need to ensure that video games remain attractive to consumers, and in order to do so new concepts and ideas are important. I would like to challenge myself to do that."

Given the recent increase in third-party support and cross-company collaboration in Nintendo's latest games, this may not be a bad thing for the series. He did a great thing in creating a fantastic franchise, and had a good run, especially with the writing for Metroid Fusion, but if he doesn't feel like he's the right guy to take the series further (especially after the cold reception Other M got), then I fully support him in that decision, and wish him luck in his new projects.

I partially disagree with you on Metroid Fusion. Evidence of Samus' character decay was present, but not overstated like in Other M.

Honestly, this is the best piece of Metroid news in a long time. I think it was clear with Other M that he was becoming increasingly incapable to lead the series, especially when it came to the series' narrative. That being said, Tomodachi Life looks hilarious and awesome and I wish Sakamoto the very best.

While Metroid isn't my forte as far as Nintendo franchises go, I do hope someone else takes over and continues it.
