A post-credits scene at the end of Metroid Prime Federation Force is possibly teasing a new (proper) Metroid Prime game.
Metroid Prime Federation Force was the Metroid game nobody asked for (and nobody really liked) but a post-credits scene may have something for you patient, die-hard Metroid fans. The scene, which you can see in the video to the right, seems to strongly tease the existence of a new main series Metroid Prime game. Be warned that it does contain some mild Federation Force spoilers, if you are one of the five people who actually plan on playing it.
Confused? GameXplain has put together a video explaining the scene. Essentially, Slyux, a character from the DS's Metroid Prime: Hunters, is shown breaking into a Federation base and hatching a Metroid egg. The significance of this is that Metroid Prime's produced, Kensuke Tanabe has previously expressed interest in making a new Metroid Prime game that focused on the rivalry between Slyux and Samus.
So what do you guys think? Is this a shot-in-the-dark, with fans desperately hoping for a new, proper Metroid, or are they on to something here?
