The prospect of a new Star Fox game on Wii U is certainly intriguing. Let’s just hope that–if it happens at all–it’s more like Star Fox and Star Fox 64 than Star Fox Adventures.

Legendary Nintendo developer Shigeru Miyamoto hopes to see new Metroid and Star Fox games come to the Wii U.  In an interview with IGN, Miyamoto-san stated that he sees a lot of interesting potential for the Metroid series because of the Wii U GamePad:  “”I feel like the possibilities of the GamePad for Metroid could be really fantastic.  There’s certainly a lot that you could do there for that game.”  Miyamoto-san went on to note that he’s even more excited about the prospect of a new Star Fox game for Wii U.  Please note that this is NOT a confirmation that either title is currently in development.  Still, Miyamoto-san obviously has a lot of sway at Nintendo…

-Nick’s take:  It’s been far too long since we’ve been treated to a proper new Star Fox space shooter.  A new Metroid game is intriguing, as well, but that’s almost too obvious.
