One of the more surprising moments during the week of E3 was the announcement of Metroid Prime 4 during the Nintendo Direct presentation. While the announcement was received well, there may be a downside to all this.
Retro Studios, who have worked on the first 3 Prime games as well as other beloved Nintendo titles, will not be working on Metroid Prime 4. This is sad to hear as we know they always make a game worth playing but Bill Trinen from Nintendo has stated the game is being built by a “talented new development team.” No need to worry though as it is still being overseen by long time producer of the series Kensuke Tanabe. Metroid Prime 4 will be developed for the Nintendo Switch.
