In June of 2017 at E3, Nintendo really brought the good stuff and excited fans across the globe with many intriguing new games for their Nintendo Switch Console. Super mario Odyssey was the star of the show with a new trailer and playable demos but one reveal may have excited fans even more. A 40 second trailer showed up in the middle of the presentation with an outer space scene and a number 4 slowly coming on screen. An iconic tune started to play and finally, the message popped up. Metroid Prime 4, now in development for Nintendo Switch. Fans around the world, including myself were jumping out of their seats with excitement as we learned that the beloved Metroid Prime franchise was coming back for a 4th installment after a 10 year hiatus. The Metroid Prime trilogy is classified by many to be one of the best video game trilogies of all time. In a first person view, players control space bounty hunter: Samus Aran, and travel to different planets and fight aliens while gradually picking up new weapons and utilities to help you along the way. The series started back in 2002 when Metroid Prime was released on the Nintendo Gamecube and saw massive critical acclaim. Two years later in 2004 the second installment, Metroid Prime 2:Echoes was released also for the Gamecube. The series then came to its third installment in 2007 on the Nintendo Wii with Metroid Prime 3:Corruption.

All three of the games are some of the highest rated games that Nintendo has ever released. It’s no wonder why the 4th installment has been on many fans watch lists since it was revealed. Right now, nothing about the game has been shown except for a logo and a late 2018-early 2019 release date.

I don’t think fans of the series have much to worry about. Everyone know that Nintendo will put their heart and soul into Metroid Prime 4 just like they already have with Mario Odyssey and Zelda Breath of the Wild on Nintendo Switch. Nintendo is known for listening to it’s fans and very rarely disappointing with their big name titles. We can definitely expect some form of gameplay or screenshots for the game by E3 in July of 2018, and when we do see it, I’m sure that Nintendo will not disappoint and show us something that Nintendo fans around the globe can be ecstatic about.
