Metroid 4 Will soon be Headed To Nintendo Switch

Nintendo's E3 2017 online press conference has announced that Metroid Prime 4 is now in development for Nintendo Switch.

Developed in collaboration with MercurySteam, Metroid: Samus Returns is an expanded remake of GameBoy classic Metroid II (1991). Those games were critically acclaimed, but Nintendo fans have wanted to see Retro do something new with Metroid. The series allows players to take control of female intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran, who made history in 1986 as the first female playable protagonist in a mainstream video game. Metroid Prime 4 is due out some time in 2018. Check out the gallery below and let us know what you think of Samus's return to the Nintendo handheld library. You thought the surprise announcement of Metroid Prime 4 for Switch was enough? Nintendo says the game will also include a 360-degree free aim mode, melee counters and special energy draining powers.

Ishihara announced a Pokemon RPG for Nintendo Switch, but provided no further details. Just like in Metroid II, Samus will be hunting Metroids down (40, in fact) and some will even have different evolutions. Revealed at E3, Metroid Prime 4 was teased via a short trailer that showed off a conspicuous number 4 emblazoned logo, but no gameplay. Since then the series has been in decline: neither 2010's Metroid: Other M nor last year's Metroid Prime: Federation Force was well-received.
