The release of Metroid Prime 4 may be closer than you think as the appearance of an official Nintendo Store page indicates that the Japanese gaming company plans on launching it soon. Even though the page dedicated to the game merely contains a text field where you can enter your email address, the fact that it has now popped up still bodes well for the community and should excite fans of the classic intergalactic series.
Of course, the arrival of Metroid Prime 4 has long been known to the community since the fourth main line installment had initially been announced during the now defunct E3 event’s Nintendo spotlight back in 2017. After initially being helmed by the legendary Bandai Namco studio, work on Metroid Prime 4 was then handed over to Retro Studios in 2019 as development during that time apparently “wasn’t progressing to a satisfactory level.”
Unfortunately, these behind-the-scenes adjustments forced the game to be delayed continuously – that is until in-house rumors surrounding the game started to die down in 2020. This indicated that Nintendo finally found the crew that was right for the job and simply put their heads down to start work on Metroid Prime 4. Now, we may finally be getting the highly anticipated release date that everyone has been waiting more than six years for.
It’s important to keep in mind, though, that this is still merely speculation at the time of writing since Nintendo hasn’t actually stated anything regarding the next Metroid game. However, another Nintendo Direct showcase could be announced any day now so it may only be a matter of time until we receive more details on the upcoming entry.
While you wait for Nintendo’s eventual announcement, we recommend registering your interest for Metroid Prime 4 by heading to its eShop page.
