Koji Igarashi recently sat down for a discussion with Glixel about Bloodstained. During the interview, which touched on a number of subjects, the metroidvania genre was brought up a few times leading to this interesting exchange

So the term ‘IGAvania’ has begun to gain currency, as another way to say ‘Metroidvania.’ I’ve always wondered why Nintendo never teamed up with you and Konami to create a new 2D Metroid.
Nintendo is very careful about protecting their IPs and making any changes to their games. Around the time that I was proving that I could do multiple titles and do them well, Nintendo had shifted to Metroid Prime and they were having success turning their 2D games into 3D. So they probably decided from that point on that Metroid was going to be a 3D game series, and by that rationale, my style of games didn’t really fit their criteria. That would be my guess.

But, let’s say the fans demanded Nintendo team up with you to make a Metroid game, and Nintendo actually approached you to make one, would you do it?
I would be incredibly honored.

I personally would love to see this happen. Metroid and IGA would be a match made in heaven and there is no doubt that he could take the series in a very interesting direction. I would imagine there are many others that would be interested in this as well.
