@Octane So, just to clarify this point, it could very well have already been in development for, say, a year. Maybe more, maybe less. There's no way to know without getting the names of the team members involved.

I posted about this in another thread, it feels to me like Prime 4 was announced just to avoid any kind of uproar about Samus Returns and AM2R. Not to mention, people would complain about the game being on 3DS and not on Switch, just like it happened to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. If that's the case and they actually have anything to show, they might want to save that for another time (next E3, probably)

@MarcelRguez Well the remake is better received than Federation Force, so that worked I guess.

I wonder who the dev is. Completely unfounded, but From Software was listed as a dev for the Switch right?

@Octane Prime's dev? From what Tanabe said about it, I thought it was "a new team" at Nintendo, not a third-party studio. It would be pretty crazy for them to outsource both Metroid games, but I wouldn't be that surprised.

From's logo was in that list, yes. I don't think it's them, but they're one of the most apt candidates to make a good Prime, that's for sure.

if From was responsible, the internet would lose its mind in hype. But if it's also just a new group of devs from Nintendo themselves, I'm optimistic.

I've played the first Metroid Prime and loved it. Soon, I hope to start Prime 2 (both as part of MPT on my Wii U). I love the series, so needless to say I'm hyped about this one! I'm also not bothered about the wait.

I'm still coming down from cloud 9 here..........anyways I thought some would like to see some reactions from others and this was me to an extent.

There is a bit of language here if that might offend you.

please!

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

Wow - already more than 50 posts in response to nothing more than a title screen...

I, for one, am also obscenely excited, however. This is one of the things I Switched up for. I'd love to see the 3DS's 2D title come to Switch as well, though, even if the 3DS gets a six- or twelve-month exclusivity first.

The best and only thing real, confirmed positive about this announcement is that Nintendo is spending its development resources on Metroid Prime instead of another 2D game, sports game, etc.

Won't this be the first first-person game Nintendo Japan has ever made? Certainly the first first-person shooter.

I would put money down that this game won't be out until early 2019 at the earliest.

Currently Playing: Super Mario Odyssey, ARMS, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Steamworld Dig 2, A Hat In Time, (maybe some Wii games over Thanksgiving w/ the fam)

I'm excited and I'll buy, but Sylux is due to return. If he doesn't have a big role after the teasing, my excitement is going to plummet a bit. If Sylux is there though, I'll lose my sh:t.

Favorite Game: Metroid Prime Hunters

The absolute opposite, haha. Get those Hunters characters OUTTA THERE, new story! I just hope Nintendo can storyboard and write cutscenes and lore as well as Retro.

I hope it's more like the first Prime. Opening scene starts, Sylux crashes, start with a new slate. I think the game is going to be relatively ''safe'' in terms of what it's going to do. The last thing Nintendo wants is another Metroid backlash, so I think the game is going to resemble the first Prime in many ways, and I'm fine with that.

I'd hate that but it's not like I can complain about anything because the Metroid I wanted is coming later this year

I wonder what the chances of a 3rd person Prime are but I'm not going to get my hopes up for that. But I kinda wanna replay Echoes now.

What a beautiful signature.

@Tsurii I think it's going to be first person. Like I said, I think Nintendo is going to play it safe. I'd love a third person Metroid though.

Octane

Tsurii

@Octane yah, same. I'm not expecting it but I'd definitely prefer it. I want to see Samus kick ass, not play another FPS. Oh well. Way too early to lose any sleep over it (if I even were to lose sleep over it in the first place)

If Metroid Prime 4 is like the first game it will have color-coded enemies, generic fire/water/desert/ice areas, a painful amount of unavoidable backtracking, and some real bad combat and boss battles. The Prime games improved, markedly, as they went on. I'm tired of all this nostalgia that ignores the flaws of things.

Staying on one planet the entire game was limiting, and all of the lore entries basically said, "Phazon mutates and corrupts life, the impact crater infected and poisoned our planet, and the Space Pirates are mining it to do evil stuff."

The scans in Metroid Prime 2 and 3 became much more varied and interesting, as did the environments, so taking after Metroid Prime 1 would feel like a step back.

@Haru17 I'm replaying Prime for the first time in years and I have to agree. Echoes is fresher in my mind and I can tell it's a much more cohesive game environment-wise.

Prime's s selling point was the way it translated Super's template to a 3D space. It was an an incredible achievement back in 2002, but that template is something we can do without now. Retro knew this, or Corruption wouldn't have the structure it has.

That said, they can make a single planet interesting, they just have to communicate better the placement of each area with respect to one another and not rely on what they've already done in previous games. I too hope they give us something new.
