Reggie talks Metroid and Mother 3

Nintendo of America COO Reggie Fils-Aimé hinted at upcoming good news for Metroid and Mother 3 fans.

In an interview with GameSpot, Reggie had this to say:

“Oh, so earlier today I got asked about Mother 3; maybe you can ask me about Metroid. Look, again, I am proud as an executive with Nintendo to say that we look at all of the boards and all of the comments and we really have a good understanding of what our consumers want. And believe me, we take that to heart as we work to create content.

So I have nothing to announce – here. But we are aware that there are some key IP that consumers just can’t wait for the next true installment in that franchise’s legacy. Suffice it to say, we’re aware of it, and talk to me in a year and let’s look back and see what’s happened.”

Fans of these franchises have been clamoring for some love from Nintendo in the past few years.

In Metroid’s case, fans want the next successful entry in the storied franchise, as Metroid Other M (Wii, 2010) and Metroid Prime: Federation Force (3DS, 2016) weren’t up to their standards.

Mother 3 fans, on the other hand, have been asking for the Game Boy Advance game to be localized ever since its original release in Japan, back in 2006. A popular fan translation of the game is available all over the internet, however, so Mother 3 has quite a big cult following in the West.

Recent rumors indicated that Mother 3 could be revealed during the Nintendo Switch Presentation, but it seems as though that didn’t happen.

May Nintendo give us some news on both of these franchises in the coming year? If Reggie’s comments are anything to go by, that seems like a strong possibility.

  1. “we look at all of the boards and all of the comments and we really have a good understanding of what our consumers want…talk to me in a year and let’s look back and see what’s happened.” I try not to have negative posts, but these statements, on top of the other one that’s being reported where he states the Switch “had to cost $299 because it has the Switch, the dock, the controller, and all the cables” – they’re not (in my opinion) listening. Or looking at the completion. I already have an XBone and a PS4…if I didn’t there are some excellent bundles out there…with the console, a game, a controller, and the cables…for a lower price point. So yes, I will see in a year where the Switch is…I might have one, I might not. I don’t require a pack in game – prefer to pick that myself. But I do expect value for my money, and I don’t see that in the Switch at its current price point.
