Because a) half the time it's not literally clones for co-op, and b) you'd have even more people annoyed for other reasons. This franchise is freaking troll bait if you think about it; unless they just do single player content and exclusively side scrollers, someone is going to complain.

Because no matter what they do, unless they do something exactly right, someone's gonna throw a riot, and everyone's gonna get behind that person. Metroid is something that's like the pinnacle of canon lovers. We even saw this when Other M tried to retcon things from the earlier games, and everyone got up in arms over it(like Samus' reaction to Ridley reviving again, despite us not actually having anything much to go off of in the first games; Zero Mission aside), and just... I can't think right now, it's so late. >>''

I thought people were more mad over how Samus was portrayed in Other M rather than the storyline.

I play Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate a lot. I've played about 240 hours. I currently have a G2 permit and am HR 63. PM me if you're interesting in playing multiplayer. I mainly use the switch axe, but I also know how to use longswords and hammers, and kind of know how to use sword and shield.

Can someone explain to me why Nintendo treats Metroid like its fans are Nintendo's estranged ex and Nintendo only shows up every once in a while to pay the bare minimum child support in the form of some sub-par Metroid game that not a single person asked for? .-.

Imagine how F-Zero fans like myself feel, with how little attention F-Zero has gotten outside of Captain Falcon in smash.

Good news: the normal New 3DS comes out the 25th.
Bad news: it's only the Animal Crossing version, which I don't really want...

Hopefully they'll release a standalone version of the console soon.

They can't do co-op with Samus, or there'd be clones running around, which would break canon even more.


this isn't a problem in any other shooter why is it a problem in metroid?
I don't really have a problem with it, but it does take you out of the immersion sometimes. Halo CE, 2, and 4 have the second-through-fourth players as Master Chief clones. Halo 3 was cool though because Player 2 was the Arbiter and players 3 and 4 were two different Elites.

Heck, you don't necessarily have to have multiple Samus' either. In the expanded canon, there are other people who wield Power Armor, such as Armstrong Houston, so you can just have palette-swapped Power Armor-wearing players.

Honestly, it is a small nit-pick anyway, I don't know why I got so into it XD

ON ANOTHER NOTE, Halo 5 opening cinematic released last night. I can't explain the hype I have for this game (Bonkle 2015 hype levels).
