“I can’t give you any details now, but I’m sure there will be a new Metroid release making use of the new controller, not just to control Samus and her ship but also to give the player a new source of information. Maybe the player is looking at the screen but has the information that they need to defeat the enemy in their hands. You could look through the screen and scan your enemy and find where its weak-spot is.”

New Metroid Game Coming to Wii U?
I hope so.
Nintendo’s developer and producer of the Wii version of Animal Crossing, Katsuya Eguchi, has said in an interview with Kotaku that he is sure a Metroid game will be released for Wii U. Eguchi is currently working on upcoming Wii U projects and has revealed details about how the unannounced Metroid title could work on the new console.
From what Eguchi is saying, a Metroid game sounds just right for the Wii U’s new controller combination. Personally I would like to see Nintendo take Metroid back to the Super Metroid (SNES) style platforming gaming, rather than something more like Metroid Prime (GC). However demonstrated by the examples of games coming to Wii U shown at this year’s E3, it would appear more likely for Nintendo to go with a more Metroid Prime styled game as it would match their ‘hardcore’ focus, to compete with mainstream titles such as Halo.
Are you looking forward to a brand new Samus Aran adventure?
