Rumor: Metroid Prime Trilogy for Switch is Complete

Share

The silver lining in all this is that Nintendo is heeding Shigeru Miyamoto's sage advice: "A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever".

"We deeply understand the high anticipation that Metroid Prime series fans have for this title", Takahashi said.

In a surprise announcement, Nintendo has just dropped a video on Twitter and YouTube with an update on Metroid Prime 4.

We heard earlier today from Nintendo that the development of the eagerly awaited Metroid Prime 4 hasn't gone to plan and that the game wasn't up to the standard Nintendo expects, so they have chose to start again. But that does mean Nintendo is starting nearly from scratch, which means it's going to be a good long while before the game sees the light of day.

Metroid Prime 4 was first revealed for the Nintendo Switch at E3 2017, so a lot of work is being scrapped with this decision. Eurogamer dug into the Bandai Namco Studios Singapore staff member profiles for more clues, which eventually pointed the publication to a lead designer that was apparently assigned to an "unannounced IP (first person shooter/adventure exclusive to the Nintendo Switch)".

How soon are we likely to see the next entry in the Metroid Prime series?

This will mean it'll be a long time till anything is shown of the game and even longer till it's actually out.

Nintendo senior managing executive officer Shinya Takahashi announced the news in a three minute development update, which you can see embedded below. When it comes to Metroid Prime 4, Nintendo will "re-examine the development structure itself and change it". Because of that commitment to expectations, they have made a decision to reset the entire development process and bring in a studio that has extensive knowledge of the original games: Retro Studios. We strongly recognize that this delay will come as a disappointment to the many fans who have been looking forward to the launch of Metroid Prime 4.
