From the Vault: Metroid 3DS Rumour Quashed
Sorry to break the news to you, but Jonathan Ross denies he was talking about Metroid 3DS in his recent tweet.
Update: While working on a new PS4 Pro website, I remembered the strange time 3DS Buzz got talked mentioned it lots of big gaming news websites like IGN, all because I tweeted Jonathan Ross. Those were the days. I hope the PS4 Pro website can get that kind of publicity at some point.
Many gaming websites reported on Jonathan Ross’s recent Twitter comment which seemed to hint that a new instalment of Metroid was heading to 3DS. When tweeting about hosting the Nintendo 3DS preview event this Wednesday user, darrenkerwin said:
I don’t expect you to spill anything, it’s nice to have a surprise. I have my fingers crossed for Metroid..
To which Ross replied;
I think you’re going to be pleased then…
While realising he may not have been referring to Metroid, that didn’t stop fans from speculating that a 3D instalment of Metroid was soon to be announced.
I’m sorry to be a killjoy but I asked him to clarify if he was referring to being pleased about the event in general or about Metroid. 3DS Buzz said,
You started a lot of 3DS rumours! You meant darrenkerwin will be pleased about general surprises not about a Metroid 3DS didn’t you?
Then Ross shattered Samus Aran fans’ dreams with,
yes. Why? Did he think I meant new Meteoid?
Who knows? Maybe there will be a Metroid 3DS game, but it’s not what Ross was referring to in his tweet. Or maybe he was just covering up the leak, but that’s more than likely just wishful thinking.
