Metroid Prime 4 Is “Well In Development”

We have heard little more about the game since it was first revealed at E3 2017, but Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime has stated that Metroid Prime 4 is “well in development.”

“Internally, we have expectations about when [Metroid Prime 4] is going to be released,” Fils-Aimé explained to Mashable. “We haven’t announced it, but yeah, the game is well in development.”

Samus Aran’s return on the portable home console had been somewhat simply teased with a logo, but, despite the early announcement, it was absent in the Nintendo Direct: E3 2018 presentation.

When asked at the time as to why that was, Fils-Aime explained: “We believe it is not fair to the fans to repeatedly tease them over time about a game. That’s why we tend to focus close in, typically in a six to nine-month timeframe, and go deep in sharing content and information on a particular piece of content.

“Metroid Prime 4 continues to be in development and making great progress. But right now, for something that’s not launching in 2018, it just wasn’t the right time.”
