In an interview with Gamespot, Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo of America, hinted that fans may be able look forward to getting Metroid and Mother 3 on the Nintendo Switch.

“Oh, so, earlier today I got asked about Mother 3; maybe you can ask me about Metroid. Look, again, I am proud as an executive with Nintendo to say that we look at all of the boards and all of the comments and we really have a good understanding of what our consumers want. And believe me, we take that to heart as we work to create content.

“So I have nothing to announce–here. But we are aware that there are some key IP that consumers just can’t wait for the next true installment in that franchise’s legacy. Suffice it to say, we’re aware of it, and talk to me in a year and let’s look back and see what’s happened.”

Reggie, and Nintendo as a whole, have made clear in the past that anything is possible. With that, there is a chance that we could see a new Metroid title in 2018, or even a release of Mother 3 in the west.

Reggie had also stressed that the company lacking any “large gaps” between their title releases is important to the company. He says the Switch will have “a regular cadence of critical launches to drive the install base and keep the consumer base engaged.”
