Nintendo announces that Metroid Prime 4 development has restarted and will now be by Retro Studios.

January 25, 2019

Nintendo’s Senior Managing Executive Officer, Shinya Takahashi, has just provided us with a Metroid Prime 4 update. Due to Nintendo‘s high standards and what they expect their games to achieve, especially top tier ones, they were not satisfied with the current build, so it has now gone to Retro Studios and has officially restarted its development. As a result, we will get a much better game, but ultimately one that doesn’t come out till much later than originally planned. Depending on the exact time that the development shifted hands, I imagine we will get the game Fall 2020 or beyond (let’s call it November, 2021 for now). Here is the video we got.

To Kensuke Tanabe who will be heading the game’s development with Retro Studios, here is to this game being something really special. Thank you Nintendo for giving us this news and having this much care for the franchise in the first place.
