    I never realised it was a full-price game to begin with! I knew retail was sub-20, but would have preferred download to dip in and out of.

    To be honest, there's a lot of content there. It's by far the best game of its kind. I managed to get more play time from it than I did Assassin's Creed 3 (and I played that through to completion and had done most of the extra stuff on the side).

    Edit - Not that it justifies a ridiculous price tag like that!

    @Raiko101 For sure, might get those all-in-one remotes Mario themed.

    Just playing the single player Metroid ship mission makes me hope for a new Nintendo Metroid, especially if they gave it a more comic book feel.

    Overall though Nintendoland gives me hope that we're in for a treat with future un-announced first party titles.

    Oh I hope they don't go in that direction. Metroid is one of the few Nintendo properties with a dark tone and feel and I'd rather they kept that intact. I want another Retro-made Metroid without the gimmicks of MP2 and the Halo-envy of 3.

    So what do you think Nintendo will show at VGA? Apparently they are showing something, and reggie will be there. I don't think they been there before no? or shown anything.

    Metroid could grab the audience. Or Zelda U.

    @erekose200 That would be fine as long as it had a reason for being something other than an obvious Prime 4 "ooh it's HD" etc. If it was on the same level as Prime 1 and did something differently then that would be great. Otherwise I don't know what it would be offering.

    What would you like from a new Retro Metroid?
    I'd like a brand new story, the return of Mother Brain and a focus on isolation and loneliness in desolate locations but ramped up in some epic scale that allows for exploration across an entire galaxy.

    Maybe the Nintendoland Metroid art direction would be better suited to the 3DS?

    Something new, maybe?

    Why make something new when you have about a dozen IPs to cherry-pick from?

    That's not a criticism by the way, most companies would kill to have that many popular franchises.

    Maybe they are popular because Nintendo rarely deviate from them. Not a matter of choice for the consumer. If Mario etc all are the only choices, they will be popular, no?

    I think it depends on the form of the difference. Wonderful 101 is a fantastic game, but it's not the sort of thing that you'd usually expect as a Nintendo exclusive so it didn't really sell well, even relative to the audience they have.

    I'm surprised they've not tried a new platformer. It's a genre they've got the talent for. Just do a properly new platformer would be a nice surprise.

    Nintendo need a shooty franchise, more than anything.

    So the new 3DS update will (finally) combine eShop funds with the Wii U, right? Remembered I still have some old unused Wii points lying around from years back. I know they can't be used in the Wii U eShop (apparently they transfer over, but can only be used within the Wii mode shop), but if I use those points to buy VC games on my Wii, I'll then be eligible to get the discounted versions off the Wii U shop, I'm guessing...

    God, Nintendo do like to make things so complicated sometimes.

    is super mario 3d world a real game(/full-fledged proper mario title) or is it a multiplayer focussed one?

    Every bit a proper fully-fledged Mario, apparently. Hence me suddenly having an interest in buying a Wii U.

    @acousticwilliam I'm with you on Mother Brain, isolation, new story, etc. I'd like more Chozo lore, I'd like the Metroids to regain a more prominent position with a threat level in gameplay terms matching their reputation in story terms. I want Sakamoto to do the audio again - Other M had the worst music of any Metroid imo. I think they could raise the bar in alien design to make them look less power rangers and more HR Giger (love the original Metroid and chozo designs though).

    The thing is, Prime 1 absolutely nailed it but all the others since have been lacking IMO (decent but flawed) so I still feel like a mere evolution of prime 1 would not be unacceptable. I know it's been said but gamepad for map/scanning, etc would be a perfect fit.

    Yes, as I don't believe Wii U games actually support Classic Pro?

    It's up to the developers to support controllers. So Call of Duty supports almost every controller there is. Classic Pro support isn't common though.

    @jambii267 I hear what you're saying but does the Wii U really need its own shooty-pew-pew franchise when it's an already over-saturated genre across the industry?

    It would be lost in the ether unless it had a unique point of difference. If the recent releases are anything to go by people are getting bored of the same thing again and again. Despite, you know, selling millions of copies.

    Look to Star Fox Assault as a reason why making a shooter - 3rd of 1st person - would be a massive waste of time just to please the crowd (poorly).

    Yeah, I can confirm this, the game says as much when you start it up.

    Sweet that will save me 30, although invited a load of friends around next Saturday to show off the Wii U. As none of my friends have even heard of it!

    Guess its fair to have one on gamepad, one on classic controller and two on wiimote+nunchuck.
