E3 2017 - Nintendo today made our dreams come true: a new Metroid game is in development!

Nintendo is making a new Metroid Prime 4 game exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Metroid Prime 4 (working title) is a first-person adventure game currently in development from series producer Kensuke Tanabe and a new development team--that's right, Retro studios isn't making this one. Tanabe affirms that his new dev team are working hard to bring the "action, isolation, and exploration of the Metroid Prime universe to life" on the Nintendo Switch.

"Metroid Prime 4 (working title) returns to the first-person adventure roots of the original Metroid Prime game and introduces a new storyline that ties together the events of the Metroid Prime universe and takes the storyline in new directions," according to series produce Kensuke Tanabe.

No release date has been announced for Metroid Prime 4, but we probably won't see it until 2019 or thereabouts.
