The Metroid Series may come out on the Nintendo Switch. This was the hint given by Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime.
Nintendo (America) CEO was asked during a recent interview with GameSpot about series like Metroid. He immediately said that Metroid or Mother 3 is not currently part of the current Switch lineup. Fils-Aime though is aware of the fans' hope for the inclusion of a Mother 3 or Metroid game title.
This is probably why he dropped some hints about their possible inclusion in the months to come. Unfortunately, he did not mention any specifics. Still, it gives Metroid fans some hope. The franchise has always been included in previous Nintendo gaming platforms except the Wii U. The Japanese company also declared that no new Metroid title is coming out in their console before the Switch's release. Industry observers see this as a subtle message that Metroid game is under development for the Switch.
