Rumours: Metroid in development for Wii U and more

These rumours from the source website Nintendotown was posted a few months ago but it’s still worth a mention now. Firstly, a new Metroid game is in the works for the Wii U and is being built using Unreal Engine 3. Futhermore, a tech demo of Metroid Wii U was shown.

This rumour does have a little plausability due to the fact that last year, Katsuya Eguchi, said that we would at some point see a Metroid game on the Wii U.

The next, and slightly more unrealistic rumour is that Android OS is integrated into the Wii U. This would be quite interesting if it turns out to be true.

The source website is French so it’s worth noting that Google Translate was used to decifer the site.

    Wow I hope this turns out to be true. I also hope Retro is behind it.

  2. Captainhowdy

    Please be true. A new Metroid game would rule.

  3. RoboBus

    Couldn’t be more false.

    This is just too good to be true. Let’s hope Nintendo/Retro come up with a new Metroid game… especially when it’s powered by Unreal Engine 3 (or 3.9).

    • Yeah. Metroid powered by Unreal Engine 3.9 would be EPIC… (see what I did there?)

    If Nintendo somehow integrated Android OS into the controller for some mobile features that would be awesome. However, I see them less likely using it in the entire system.

    Retro Studios better be making that Metroid game…

    Other M was pretty meh… but I guess I’ll play it if it’s true

    I don’t see why Nintendo would want Android… They’d have serious competition from the Play Store on their own console! No one buy from the Wii U’s eShop. …unless they’d block out the Play Store? Then they could still have some pre-installed apps and features (video playback, Netflix, Google Chrome, some music thing, Youtube, Gmail, facebook, twitter, google+, etc.). Yeah, that actually sounds pretty damn awesome. But still not likely.
