RUMOR: NST Gets the Green Light on Mystery Project

Metroid Prime Hunters was an absolutely stellar title for the original DS. Early into its life when developers hadn't quite learned how to utilize the full potential of the system, NST pumped out this blockbuster first person shooter/exploration title rivaling it's console counterparts. Hunters contained what was, in my opinion, the greatest multiplayer experience on a portable system to date with a wealth of modes, characters, and an ungodly number of stages ranging from claustrophobic close range corridors to enormous space stations with low gravity allowing for heated midair gunfights. In high school, this game got me and my friends many many days of detention.
Pardon me gushing, but it's hard not to be excited knowing the potential of this developer considering the gem they last created. Granted, there is absolutely no evidence that their alleged upcoming project is going to be a Metroid title, but evidence proves that if were to be that the developers know how to handle the franchise. Also remember the previously mentioned 2D side scrolling Metroid game that was supposed to be for DS but was allegedly cancelled, Metroid Dread. Though reported to be cancelled, there was a reference to the game in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption that raised enormous speculation when it hinted that the game still had a flicker of life left in it.
There's many reasons to be excited despite the speculation. Let the euphoria of this rumor make you reflect on the series and gain enthusiasm for future Metroid titles.
