Metroid Prime 4: Nintendo Switch Release Date, Game Trailer, News and updates for 2018

Metroid Prime 4 Update – 28 January 2018

A developer of the original Metroid Prime Trilogy has outlined his feelings on the game moving away from Retro Studios in a new interview with Shinesparkers.

Jack Mathews was the Technical Lead Engineer on the Gamecube games, and in response to the news that the new game would be made by another development team, he had some pretty powerful things to say.

“My initial feeling was this weird, petty anger

“Anger that Nintendo would have the gall to give Metroid Prime to someone else. I felt like Metroid Prime was Retro, so I reflexively thought of it as being a weird slap in the face, even though I hadn’t been part of Retro for like 8 years.”

The engineer believes the new team could do the series justice, though:

“Soon after, it dawned on me that my attitude was totally childish and that Retro itself was just a weird unknown bunch of screw-ups when we GOT Metroid, so it may be nice to see what a fresh team with fresh eyes does with it.

Now I’m just in ‘wait and see’ mode. No matter what, though, I know that when it comes out I’ll blow the dust off the ol’ Switch and give it a whirl.”

Metroid Prime 4 – What is it?

Metroid Prime 4 will likely be a sequel to Metroid Prime 3: Corruption – a game that released over a decade ago in 2007.

It’s not yet been revealed whether or not the game will feature the same sort of visual style as the 2007 entry in the series, but we’re sure we’ll see more information about the game when the next trailer is released. 

Metroid Prime 4 – Developer

The next trailer will reportedly detail the new game with that’s been developed by Bandai Namco with “a lot of help from Nintendo”.

According to rumours, the publisher behind such hits as the Dark Souls series and Tekken could be releasing the Nintendo Switch’s next big hit.

Nintendo has already stated the following about the game, however:

“The project is being led by series producer Kensuke Tenabe and a talented new development team,” state rumours from leaker Markus Sellars on a Discord channel.

Together they are hard at work bringing the action, isolation and exploration of the Metroid Prime Universe to life on Nintendo Switch.”

So the Bandai Namco rumour goes against what we know about the game so far – that it’s being developed by an internal team at Nintendo.


Metroid Prime 4 – Release Date

Nintendo has also held back on revealed a release date for the game, but at this early stage you’d have to say that it’s coming at the very earliest late 2018 as a Christmas release.

Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime was asked about a new Metroid game prior to the release of the Nintendo Switch, and his response was interesting.

Here’s what he had to say:

“But we are aware that there are some key IP that consumers just can’t wait for the next true instalment in that franchise’s legacy. Suffice it to say, we’re aware of it, and talk to me in a year and let’s look back and see what’s happened.”

There is no release date or info about the game just yet but fan excitement is naturally HUGE for the return of one of Nintendo’s most celebrated series.

Metroid Prime 4 – E3 Announcement

The game was first announced at E3 2017 with a first-look trailer.

The trailer shown didn’t give away any gameplay, but simply gave fans a title in the brief teaser released just minutes ago, which featured little more than the Metroid Prime 4 logo.

It’s possible though that Nintendo’s E3 2018
