That was Team Ninja; they shouldn't have been trusted with it in the first place.
Based on what I've heard various Japanese developers either proudly or shamefully say, they shouldn't make a Metroid game period.

"We made the game the way Japanese audiences want to see a game made" is actually a quote that says a lot about how different the two demographics are.

And it kind of relates to OP. Because Japanese or American, this game's selling point is to a relatively small group of people that just happens to be very active online and promoting it by word-of-mouth.

They make more games because there's an epic multi-installment story to be told.  At least the good companies do.  Not Ubisoft.
Stories don't pay for development costs.

Sales mean nothing.  The quality is what matters.

You listed quite a lot of quality games there, Zero.  It just goes to show you that sales mean nothing.  The quality is what matters.
Those are games that are either about to go defunct or are already defunct.

Stories don't continue when they're put on hiatus or... Y'know... End.  Xenoblade doesn't have a sequel because it ended and pretty much went as gradiose as any game possibly could.

There is a difference between going on "hiatus" and not continuing on because you lack the capital.

Xenoblade doesn't have a sequel because it's only 3 years old and Nintendo doesn't make non-Mario/Zelda games often (Metroid is 28 years old and only has 11 games, including the pinball spin-off and the GBA remake).

Also, Xenoblade is getting a sequel, at least spiritually. Monolithsoft's X, the upcoming Wii U exclusive, clearly has very similar combat style to Xenoblade, also by Monolithsoft.

Spritually.  And only spiritually.  Xenoblade doesn't need a sequel, therefore Nintendo is not bothering.

If it sold through the roof, it'd probably "need" a sequel. Because the promise of more $$$ is a big motivator, especially when Nintendo isn't doing that great right now.


You must have some sort of brain disorder.

Nintendo isn't greedy, but Nintendo is a business, and Nintendo will do what it thinks it needs to do to make money. So actually, yeah, Nintendo is greedy, just not as much as some other companies may seem.

To be fair the first New Super Mario Bros was well done and Nintendo did not expect it to sell as much as it did.

What they did after was what made it clear that they really wanted to replicate the success. Who wouldn't?

I've heard NSMBU was pretty well done, though as the 4th in the "series" it was still clearly made only because they thought it would sell well (and it might have if it wasn't expected to carry a system launch).
