Metroid Prime 4 is one of the most-anticipated games for the Nintendo Switch, and it has been a very long time since Nintendo has so much as teased the project. Initially announced with only a logo back at E3 2017, the long-awaited sequel has gone through a bit of a tumultuous development period. While it might not be much, here’s everything we know about Metroid Prime 4 so far.
Nintendo has not revealed a release date for Metroid Prime 4, simply stating that the game was “in development” during E3 2017 before later offering an apology for the wait back in 2019. During this second update, Nintendo’s Shinya Takahashi said it would be missing its internal release target for the game, but since we don’t know what that is, it’s unclear when we can expect Metroid Prime 4.
What We Know So Far
In the grand scheme of things, the real answer is “almost nothing,” but there are a few things we’ve come to understand about Metroid Prime 4’s development. Unfortunately, what we know isn’t all positive news.
