Designer of Metroid Prime Hunters Wants to See the Nintendo DS Game Remade
One of the designers of Metroid Prime Hunters talks about his desire to see the original Nintendo DS title remade with modern visuals and controls.
Speaking to Kiwi Talkz about his time working on the game, Richard Vorodi explained that while he believes Metroid Prime Hunters is perfect the way it is, if the fans wanted to see a remake bad enough he would be all for it. Vorodi says that seeing all the hunters in full resolution and the little details that would be able to be added to each character design would be exciting to see. Claiming that the FPS genre has seen the most growth out of any genre in the industry in the 16 years since the title's debut, Vorodi says that it would simply be unbelievable to see how Metroid Prime Hunters would play today.
Elsewhere in the interview Vorodi speaks on the development process for a Metroid game, claiming that Nintendo has a "Metroid Bible" that it gives to each development crew working on any Metroid game no matter mainline title or spin-off. Some bounty hunter names even had to be changed over the course of development on Metroid Prime Hunters as a few were found to already be registered trademarks. Vorodi also explained that the hunter Weavel was inspired by the painful experience of being bitten by a weevil bug as a child.
