Everything We Know About Metroid Prime 4
This announcement from Nintendo was a huge surprise.
It’s official - Metroid Prime 4 is coming to Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo didn’t give us much in their reveal, but a short teaser consisting of the Metroid Prime theme, logo and a GIANT FLAMING NUMBER 4 told us all we needed to know.
The last main instalment of the Metroid Prime franchise was a full decade ago now, when Metroid Prime 3: Corruption released in 2007. The series itself has been around since 1986 (yes - really!) and has offered various offshoots and spin-offs in that time, with the Prime series - which kicked off in 2002 - considered by many as some of the best games ever made. Period.

Nothing else was said - no deets on the story, no release date (or even who’s making it! All we do know is that original dev team, Retro, are not on board) - but we do know that it’s in “development for Nintendo Switch”. But we also discovered that a remake of Metroid II - Return of Samus is also in production, expecting to release in September 2017 on Nintendo 3DS. SQUEE.
