Metroid Prime 4 is arguably the biggest Nintendo game that was nowhere to be found at E3 2019. The publisher could’ve shown it at the expo, but it ultimately decided not to for an interesting reason to say the least. In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Nintendo’s Kensuke Tanabe revealed that he and his team didn’t want Luigi’s Mansion 3 to be outshined by Samus’ upcoming adventure. Read on below for some relevant excerpts from the interview:
And lastly, Mr. Tanabe I can’t not ask you about a certain other project you’re working on – Metroid Prime 4. We haven’t seen anything of it at all this E3. Do you have an update for fans waiting patiently for it?
Tanabe: I shouldn’t say, it’s a little tricky… To be completely honest, at this E3 I just want people to pay attention to Luigi. If I mention something about Metroid Prime 4, people will focus on that. But when the time comes, I am so ready to talk about it!
