Yoshio Sakamoto, like many fans, wants to see Samus Aran in the movie world
There is no doubt that Nintendo has one of the most beloved franchises in the world of video games. The Japanese company recently reiterated its desire to bring other of its IPs to the world of cinema , which gave many hope to see an adaptation of Metroid on the big screen. If you are one of them, you should know that you are not the only one, but also a series manager dreams of this.
The closest thing to a film Metroid Nintendo has done in its history is the live-action trailer that occurred to promote Metroid: Other M . Despite being very short, the announcement was very well received by fans, as it gives an idea of what a live-action CGI Metroid movie would look like .

A MAJOR METROID CREATIVE WOULD LOVE A MOVIE FROM THE SERIES
Well, you’re not the only one who thinks a Metroid film project would be a great idea. Yoshio Sakamoto, a Nintendo creative who began working at Metroid as a designer, was present in a recent CNET interview and has held the position of director or producer in past installments.
What drew a lot of attention in this interview is that, when raising the subject of recent developments in the Super Mario movie and putting on the table the possibility of a Metroid movie , Sakamoto commented that it seems to him that it would be an idea “very interesting “and that he hopes” will come true one day. “
A METROID MOVIE ? PLEASE!
Producer Sakamoto isn’t the only one hoping that Nintendo will one day be encouraged to make a Metroid movie . Film director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has made clear his desire to take over a film project in the franchise . That’s not all, because on several occasions the renowned actress and Nintendo fan Brie Larson has expressed her wishes to play Samus Aran in a film of the series .
Unfortunately, Nintendo is a company that, although it has already changed its position a bit regarding the expansion of its franchises , but continues to treat them with great care. In addition, we remind you that Metroid is not one of Nintendo’s most profitable IPs, despite the love that many fans have for it and how well a project in this series could be. Thus, Nintendo is focusing on its sure successes, such as the animated Super Mario tape or the rumored Donkey Kong movie , 2 franchises with which Nintendo began its amusement park project .
All of the above said, a Metroid movie sounds unlikely, but don’t be discouraged, hope always dies last and it could happen that, if Metroid Prime 4 is well received, the Japanese company decides to bring IP to the world of celluloid. .
