Rabid Ninty fans will immediately run with this as gospel, but there's nothing official about recent comments made by Nintendo's enigmatic head of development, Shigeru Miyamoto, and the Metroid possibilities with their forthcoming Wii U home console.
In a chat with IGN, Miyamoto explained that he thought Metroid was a good fit for the Wii U controller, but didn't go into any development specifics, much to mine, and many others' chagrin.
"With Metroid it’s very easy to imagine some interesting implementation for Wii U," Miyamoto said.
"I think that having another screen with the gyro built in really gives you a lot of interesting opportunities for development, and we can bring a lot of our games to life in a completely unique way with that.
"I feel like the possibilities of the GamePad for Metroid could be really fantastic," he added. "There's certainly a lot that you could do there for that game."
He also mentioned that the franchise he'd most like to see on Wii U is Star Fox. Here here, Shiggy. Here here.
