I'm not sure what to think of this. I'd expect the Metroid that we get is going to be pretty good with Retro at the helm, but them starting now from the ground up it could be 2 - 3 years before we get to play it. This is a very bittersweet announcement. Did we ever find out what studio they were originally working with on this?
Fuck, man, whata waste. Sakurai had a shitload of characters to pick from thanks to that Smash Poll, and then he trolls us with this shit that literally nobody requested. It's his game and he can do what he wants to, but I think it's a poor decision to spend all the time and resources developing and balancing a joke character when he could be directing the same amount effort into creating a new fighter that would get many more fans excited.
Yeah, I know what you mean. But at the same time I'm kinda into it.
