Metroid Sidescroller for DS?

I am not sure if I should have posted this in here, the Metroid game forum or the DS forum. :-/

I always thought about it. A Metroid game for DS in side-scroller form like in the games before Prime. Maybe with 2.5D graphics like in New Super Mario Bros. in a semi-3D world. Or maybe a remake of an older game? Discuss.

for one Metroid doesn't need any remakes. the only one that did was the original, and we already got Zero Mission. i'm sure some people would like to see Return of Samus redone, but i quite like it the way it is.

i would love a new sidescrolling Metroid. personally i would rather have it as a WiiWare title since i hate the design of the DS (it's simply not ergonomic or comfortable), but a new Metroid game is welcome in almost any format.

as for the graphics, no 2.5d please. i can't stand this approach to games. i find it cheap and it really doesn't add anything to the series, especially when the sprites look better (and they always do). i also find that the polygons and extra frames of animation makes the game play sluggish. if there is a new game, keep it 2d, but use that extra processing power to create some really detailed, sharp sprites.

I agree. All remakes should be made wii ware titles, and if they get popular, release a remake directly for the actual console.

I'd like to see a Return of Samus remake. But I want it to play totally different. I hated the beam swapping. So it would basically be a re-imagining of Metroid II. I'd also like to see it on WiiWare, not just to attract attention to the medium, but because I'm afraid Nintendo would ruin it on the DS by doing something gimmicky, and that would be dreadful.

Also, I want the sprites. The farthest I would go would be something like Street Fighter 4's art style.

It would look great if the graphics looked similar to Castlevania on Ds.

Yeah, that's a pretty cool idea. 2.5-D graphics are pretty cool.

I'd rather have 2D than 2.5d, but Metroid that played like a normal Metroid would be great
