Metroid fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of Metroid Prime 4 since it was first teased at E3 2017. It now looks like those fans will be waiting a lot longer. In a video posted to YouTube, this morning by Nintendo, Shinya Takahashi(head of development for Nintendo), delivered the unfortunate news. The news delivered today is that development has not met Nintendo’s standards and that the game, in its current state, would not meet the standard that had been established by the Metroid Prime series. Because it was not meeting the standards, the development team re-examined the development structure itself and decided to reboot the development. Producer Kensuke Tanabe will now work directly with Retro Studios, creators of the original trilogy, to restart developement of Metroid Prime 4. For Metroid fans, there should be a sigh of relief. When Nintendo first announced that Metroid Prime 4 was being handled by a studio other than Retro(rumors were that BandaiNamco was involved), I thought this was a huge mistake. Retro knows Metroid Prime inside and out and have proven time and time again to be a great partner for Nintendo. As anxious as I was for this game to come out, I will absolutely give Retro the time they need to give us a proper Metroid Prime 4, and fans of Metroid should feel the same.
