Eurogamer Says Bandai Namco Is Working On Metroid Prime 4

A rumour swirled around the internet last week that Bandai Namco is working on Metroid Prime 4 and now Eurogamer has confirmed this. The game is specifically being made by Bandai Namco Studios Singapore which Eurogamer says is the lead studio on the game in collaboration with Nintendo. The publication has heard from multiple sources that this is indeed correct, now all we have to wait for is Nintendo to reveal it.

  1. Hope they don’t go all Halo on this game… Hope it remains as classic as the first Prime game.. Hope it doesn’t have Metroid Other M melodrama… Hope it has some Dark Souls style isolation…
    I hope for many things but reality and hope are two separate parallels… Hopefully, at some point, my hope can find its way to reality…
    I hope Metroid Prime 4 would be that point of union… Hope again?

    1. Did you know that the employees at Bandai Namco Singapore used to work for LucasArts in developing the now-cancelled Star Wars 1313? Please take a look and observe…

  2. Let’s all hope they learned much from Retro and make us proud. Also, I hope for a Metroid Prime Anthology remaster on Switch with all 3 games plus Hunters completely rebuild from the ground up with better single player and online multiplayer in one package before Prime 4.

      1. Hunters with 12 players, voice chat, play as Dark Samus/Rundas/Pirates/GF-Troopers featuring dozens of maps and modes from Hunters and Prime 2 combined with some new ones.

      1. WTF you talking about? I want Prime 4 to be as great as the original 3. But who’s to say that remastering Metroid Prime Trilogy + Hunters shouldn’t be in the cards? It’ll help the hype of Prime 4 even more if true and comes before hand.

  3. The other interesting part of this rumor is that Eurogamer also says that there could be a remaster of the Metroid Prime trilogy coming to the Switch this year because MP4 is still in early development………that would be so awesome please let it be true

    1. Motion controls are the superior way to play a shooter on home console. The Prime trilogy on the Wii was several times more convenient, and everyone praised the Wii version of Resident Evil 4. Even if they also implement them similarly to Prime 3, I wouldn’t mind one bit.

    2. You heard wrong. They don’t have the confirmed data on the gameplay mechanics in that game. Wait until we get an official confirmation from Nintendo and/or Bandai Namco Singapore.

    3. In the case of shooters, I don’t mind motion controls as it’s easier to aim at stuff if you fix up the speed at which the cursor moves. Which would be the total opposite of Star Fox Zero where you controlled the ship itself using the motion controls, not the actual shooting.

      1. Nah, it’s not just pessimism, I’m just speculating on the subject. I actually wish that the supposed lack of experience will not show up on the game. Actually Mario + Rabbids was worth the hope. It’s just not so frequent to have quality out of studios that lacks big hits (if we avoid Just Dance that’s a simplistic game, I’m talking of the new rising star Ubisoft Milan).
        As a more general note pessimism is ‘painful’ (hurting) generally, yes.

    1. I hope we can can see the chozo in Prime 4 and that Samus interacts with them just like when Samus interacted with the luminoth U-mos.
