Rumor: New Metroid game coming from unlikely developer

A report came out today that indicates that Nintendo is working on a new Metroid game. The juicy part of this rumor is that they are working with a developer people wouldn’t expect, as the rumor starter OBE1 says.

This wouldn’t be a huge surprise considering Nintendo gave the IP to an Austin based unknown studio called Retro in 2000 and had them change the game to first person. Then in 2010 they released Metroid Other M with Team Ninja.

Notorious industry leaker Liam Robertson of Unseen64 is backing up this rumor. While he’s been off in the past he’s leaked several items. OBE1 doesn’t have nearly the same record but it seems like things are lining up for Metroid.
