However, it looks like Nintendo of America corporate communications director Charlie Scibetta may have tipped Nintendo's hand slightly in an interview with VentureBeat. We feel god about the lineup for this year and beyond. It's important to note that this statement was part of a larger message to close the gap between big game launches in general and avoid dry spells between releases. This is a bit unusual, considering that the studio developed the first three Metroid Prime games along with producer Kensuke Tanabe.

If you live in North America, you might know it can be hard trying to find a Nintendo Switch console at Gamestop. That sounds very promising, and if it's anything like the first three games, then we're in for something special.


While it would be entirely surprising to have a Metroid Prime game out that early, it wouldn't be unthinkable - there has been no significant Metroid console game since Metroid: Other M on Nintendo Wii, so Nintendo has had a whopping seven years to develop it behind the scene. You'll never have to wait long. Fans have been waiting years for movement within this franchise and to get a brand new game in the Prime style has millions excited.

"We've announced a nice lineup through this year, and next year we have some big games coming with Metroid 4", said Scibetta. 2018 will be around Metroid, Kirby, Yoshi, new Pokémon game has been announced. Metroid Prime 4 is slated to release exclusively on Nintendo Switch, possibly in 2018.


If there was one game we wanted to see announced at E3 2017, it was Metroid Prime 4. With the new Switch update, users will now be able to use the main console to make the controllers vibrate, letting you know where you left them after that last heated bout of MarioKart.
