Could We Get A Metroid Animated Series Next?

After seeing the praise and success following the Castlevania animated series on Netflix, there's now talk of making a Metroid animated series as well. And the talk is coming from Castlevania's producer, Adi Shankar. In an interview with Nintendo Life, Shankar expressed interest in turning one of Nintendo's most iconic figures into a show.

Could We Get A Metroid Animated Series Next?

His comment on the matter is very brief but speaks volumes for many fans when he simply says he'd like to create a "dark" Metroid. Now the world of Metroid in itself is already kind of dark when you think about it. The lone hero stopping one of a dozen different forces of evil from exploiting and using metroids to conquer the galaxy, ultimately destroying a living organism that is deemed too dangerous to live. The storyline from the first three games on NES and SNES alone would make for three seasons worth of stories.

Whether or not we'll ever see it is another story as Metroid is owned by Nintendo, and if you know Nintendo's history on working with animation companies, you know the reality of seeing it happen is slim. Plus, Shakar is now working on an animated version of Assassin's Creed, so who knows when he'll be free to tackle a new project. But maybe if the stars align in the right order, some awesome magic could happen. Until then, we'll all just have to wait for Metroid Prime 4.
