Hunters wasn't “outsourced“ at all. It was made by Nintendo Software Technology with some help from Retro.

Wow. I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting Nintendo to announce a Metroid Prime 4. This will be great for the Switch.

@DarthNocturnal Oh yes I forgot about Hunters; so 4 for 4 then.

Although I felt Hunters was "Decent" at best. Impressive what they managed to accomplish on the DS but the bosses were unimaginative.

The fact nintendo is reviving the series makes me both nervous and excited.

Excited because its a new metroid we've been asking for.
Nervous because how the hell is the modern day metroid going to live up to the expectations of the prime trilogy when since then its been a mess.

Regardless, I now have a reason to buy a switch and this is proof that nintendo listens to us when we begged for a MP4 around MPFF's reveal.

EDIT down below: @DarthNocturnal that's another worrying point... I wonder who actually is working on it.

According to Eurogamer, this is NOT being made by Retro. Confirmed in a roundtable interview.

I'm just skipping to the last page to make my comment, because I'm sure there's lots of "but it's only in development - not ready for awhile - rawrrawrrawr"

-SHADDUP- (that's "shut up" with a NYC deli accent)

lol

It's better than the dang nothin' we've been getting for the last decade, and it shows that they're listening at least just a little bit. (Same thing with the Pokemon announcement.)

It not being made by Retro worries me. But on the other hand most of the original prime guys are gone anyway. Sighhh what are they working on?

They say this is being developed by a “talented new development team” although Kensuke Tanabe is returning as producer.

So is it an internal Nintendo team?

@FX102A Could be Tanabe overseeing the project. It's what he did with Prime 1, 2 and 3 at Retro.

I was hoping for something new/different from the franchise, but Prime 4 isn't/won't be a bad thing

Maybe it will be new and different for the series. Maybe it'll be more like Zelda: BOTW - more open, more 3D (as in actual height and depth - traverse mountains and landscapes, not just paths through them).

I just hope it doesn't take as long as BOTW to find out!

I do agree that I don't like a series to simply do the same thing it's done in the past.

As a counterpoint though, NO ONE has actually made a Metroid Prime-like game since Metroid Prime 3. Actually no one, that I'm aware of. So yes, please just take the exact format from a game from 2002 and give me a new one. Please! Thank you!

The new 2d not AM2R thing looks cool. I'll get it. But you can get other 2d Metroidvanias. This is the only way we're getting a gameplay-continuation of my favorite game of all time, so Nintendo wins for me just with this absolutely nothing teaser.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

Cautious if Retro aren't working on it. But I'm optimistic that we're going to get another Metroid AND a new Retro game

Retro's team is big enough to produce 2 games simultaneously! They just choose not to make any! Life is a choice and choices are lives. Deal with it...

I am super pumped that Metroid is coming back.
I kinda wish they had a whole new story though. Phaaze was destroyed, Metroid Prime itself was dead. I thought the story was told and finished off nicely. I am not saying Prime 4 is a bad thing at all, though, just what I had hoped for. I am very excited to see a true Metroid game is being developed.
Of course, the "Prime" moniker might just be the name they're using now for the 3D FPS style of Metroid games and the story of Prime 4 is new.

@Spanjard Retro isn't big enough to produce 2 HD titles at once.

Seeing as Metoid Prime is in my top ten games of all time, I am super, SUPER excited about this!

A shame that it is just a placeholder logo at this minute, but knowing that the game is in active development with 2018 as its release date means that I will happily wait until it comes out before I buy go out and buy a Switch. I am really looking forward to seeing the first footage for this, and which studio is developing it.

This news elevated a fairly ho-hum Nintendo Showcase into a rather good one! Good going, Nintendo.

@Peek-a-boo It's not confirmed for 2018 I'm afraid! The ''trailer'' said ''now in development''. And if we have to believe the producer, Prime wasn't in development last year. So I think they literally just started development. It's going to be a long wait.

@Octane Last year? I know Tanabe said there was no Prime game in development back when Federation Force was revealed (E3 2015), but did he say the same thing in 2016?
