Fans Hate the New ‘Metroid’, Thousands Sign Petition
For those who do not know what Metroid is, it is an atmospheric space epic created by Nintendo about the eponymous alien parasites and Samus who love threatening the galaxy and do not hesitate doing it regularly.
At the Nintendo’s E3 presentation, the announcement was made without the usual dazzle. Fans were disappointed even though the franchise announces updates regularly. Fans have started a petition against the game and want the company to halt production.
“For almost a decade, long time Nintendo fans have been waiting for a true Metroid game. What we got however is a disgrace of a game with the name ‘Metroid’ slapped on the title. It has no elements at all of what Metroid is about and its a disrespectful manner to old and new fans of the series of showing them that the Metroid franchise is not dead afterall. This is not the Metroid we asked Nintendo to make.
We should let Nintendo know what we really think of the game and make them actually LISTEN to their fans for once. Help us stop this atrocity of a game from bearing the beloved Metroid franchise name and make Nintendo halt production on it.”
Gilbert Manzanarez started the petition and writes that this version is a shame to all versions released before. He complains that the company has disrespected all old and new fans by releasing this version. The last game in the franchise was released in 2010 titled the ‘Metroid: Other M’.
