Update: Series Producer Kensuke Tanabe will return for Metroid Prime 4, but Retro will not. The game is being handled by “talented new development team.”


It has been a long wait for Metroid fans. While Metroid Prime: Federation Force proved to be a better experience than most were expecting, the title still didn’t fill the Samus-shaped void fans have been feeling since the days of Wii.

Further details are non-existent at this time. There is some speculation that Metroid Prime 4 is not the latest project from Retro Studios, and, outside of a brief teaser, we don’t have much more information to go on, just yet! Retro has been curiously silent since the 2014 release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, so if they are behind the game’s development, it could be far along. Given that Nintendo’s focus of E3 this year is on titles releasing in 2017, it makes sense that they would choose to simply tease Samus’ new outing, rather than show more.

We’ll have more information on Metroid Prime 4 as it develops!

    Prime 4 not being developed by Retro Studios is the most intriguing thing about Nintendo’s E3 for me. First of all, I’m very happy for the Metroid fans out there that this game exists. I have only made it about halfway through the first Prime game with the Wii controls, but I will certainly be giving this game a fair look when we see more in the future.

    However, Retro not being involved really excites me. One, because they deserve a shot at their own new IP. But two, if their next project ends up being Donkey Kong, that works for me too. Tropical Freeze was the bomb.
