The producer of Metroid Dread hopes that the game will make players want to know more
We’re not about to stop hearing about the next chapter in The Adventures of Samus Aran. Recently, Yoshio Sakamoto, the title’s producer, gives us his feel for what the game represented in the history of the franchise and what he wishes for the latter’s future.
Today it is in a very specific aspect of the series that the man expresses himself: his future.
In fact, if we learn today that Sakamoto wants to end the story arc between Samus and metroids after nearly 20 years of waiting, he tells us a bit more in a recent interview with Famitsu:
“This will be the final chapter of the series, the final chapter in the shared fate and conflicting relationship between Samus and the Metroids. But this is not the end of the Metroid series. This is not what we want and this is not what fans want. We hope you’ll want to know what happens in future episodes.”
A statement that echoes other comments made by the producer but appears to confirm the fact that Metroid Dread is preparing to develop the series from a script standpoint.
If that desire can easily be felt in some franchise business, including Metroid Prime 3, Hunters, or even Federation Force (yes, I swear) this is the first time the official communication has insisted so much on the point.
What do you think of these statements? What are you waiting for for the future of franchising? Or, conversely, what are you afraid Nintendo will do with it?
