While Nintendo’s E3 presentation was a great look at what’s coming for the immediate future of the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS, some fans took issue with the announcement of Metroid Prime: Federation Force. The game spawned a petition to let Nintendo know fans don’t want the game and numerous Nintendo executives have commented on fan feedback.

Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s vice president of sales and marketing is the newest Nintendo executive to join the ranks on issuing a comment about the very vocal feedback that Metroid Prime: Federation Force has received online. His sentiments echo what we’ve already heard from both Satoru Iwata and Reggie Fils-Aime.

We love our fans. They’re the most passionate, vocal group of fans I’ve ever seen, and we listen carefully to their opinions,” Moffitt said. “We respect their opinions and their right to share those opinions with us. We try to make the best decisions we can with them in mind, but also with our content in mind, with our franchises in mind. A lot goes into the decision of which games to produce and which games not to produce. I don’t pretend to know how all those decisions are made, but we certainly appreciate our fans’ enthusiasm for the Metroid franchise. It’s a franchise I love as well, and I hope they will find other games in the 14 we’ve announced at this E3 that they can play in the meantime while we all wait for the game we’d like to come out in the Metroid franchise.

We’ve been waiting for 8 years, Scott.
