Metroid Prime 4 confirmed, what more do you need to know? Ok, we’ll tell you more. Well, after YEARS of begging, and pleading, and praying, Nintendo has confirmed that Metroid is returning, and that it’s coming to Nintendo Switch. What’s more, it is indeed continuing the Metroid Prime saga.
During a group interview (attended by IGN among others), Nintendo’s Bill Trinen revealed that the makers of the original Metroid Prime games Retro Studios will NOT be making Metroid Prime 4. However, a “talented new development team” is making it. Furthermore, producer Kensuke Tanabe, who has been on the series for some time, will be overseeing the project. So while this will be disheartening for some, it does raise some intrigue. Regardless, many consider the Metroid Prime games as some of the greatest Nintendo games ever made, and bringing the legendary Samus Aran to whole new levels.
But truly, seeing Metroid Prime 4 is bringing joying joy to many Nintendo fans, and though no release date was given, it will be coming, and that’s all we can ask for.
