They should make it optional to be 1st or 3rd person, like Battlefront.

I doubt they would use the Prime name if it wasn't first person like the others.
Also was playing Farpoint on PSVR the other day, wish there was a Metroid Prime VR game.

Nintendo's 'fact sheet' for it confirms that is is 1st Person again. Shame, I hate first person games and would love to give a Metroid game a try one day as I've never played one. Maybe I'll check out some of the old ones when the Switch VC comes along...assuming it comes along

Really happy that it is happening for the fans of the series though


Add me to the group wondering just what the heck Retro has been tinkering away at as well

I so hope Planitum Games is involved in this somehow someway. I doubt it.... But boy can I dream.

I just added Metroid Prime 4 and Metroid Samus Returns to the Switch and 3DS sections of video games on here so everyone can add to collection or price watch these two games.

Namco Bandai Singapore is working on this one.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...etroid-prime-4

One dev for the studio is even quoted as saying he’s overseeing work on a Ridge Racer 8 for the Switch as well.

I know it’s been said repeatedly and known they weren’t working on this but what the hell has Retro been up to?

Are they still saying 2018 for this game? I find that so hard to believe unless this game is like Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild and it started out as a Wii U developed game.

I don’t see it coming this year unless they devote e3 to it.

looks like most of the Starwars 1313 team is now on Metroid. Seems to me like Namco Bandai figured out they had a lot of assets from Starwars 1313 that they could use in another game... and then that light went off in their collective heads once they figured out they could just change Boba Fett to Samus and remove the Star Wars settings.

I'm still hoping for a 2018 release. This is one of the games (Bayonetta 3 and No More Heroes being the others) I will be buying a Switch for.

Bandai Namco my not be the lead dev after all and might only be assisting with assets.

I'm not watching an hour and a half video so who knows. Just reposting the story.

I'm honestly surprised they announced it so soon. Usually Nintendo is pretty good with having footage accompany an announcement. We still don't even know for sure who the main developer is which makes me thing this was bounced around already.

Oh boy. That's a pretty massive move right there. Only Nintendo would have the balls to come out and admit the game is simply not good enough and straight up publicly admit it has been canned. Other companies just ignore it ever existed and hope people forget about it.

I wonder how big a hole this has left in their roadmap now? Will they fill it with something else, maybe they move around some of the release dates for other games to fill it out.

I figured we'd hear something like this when you only get a damned logo for 2+ years. First thing that springs to mind is that games aren't immediately sub par so they've known this for a while. What the hell will their main e3 focus be is the immediate concern? I'm not really thinking Fire Emblem, Pikmin or Animal Crossing individually are big enough for that platform.

Interested to see how this affects their stock price. They'll probably need a Direct with some game teases soon to get in front of it.

So if Retro is taking it up now, who the hell has been working on it? Was it Bandai Namco?

I wonder, if they haven't got any other marque titles then maybe they go with Pokemon Gen 8 as their big E3 title. They don't tend to focus a lot on Pokemon reveals at E3 but unless they have something else that will be a total surprise I don't think there is a better game, at least they know it will be out around November unless it's affected by a release date reshuffle.

I wonder if Bandai Namco were the main developer all along. Was asking for trouble all along if that really was the case.
