Metroid Prime 4 is still in the works, but we haven’t heard anything new about it in a long time. Metroid Prime 4 was first announced in 2017 with a short teaser. In 2019, it came out that the project had been scrapped and started over. In the same year, Nintendo released a video update in which they said that Retro Studios was now in charge of making the game. Recently, a job listing was put up at the start of 2022, and a banner on Retro Studios‘ Twitter account showed what looked like art from Metroid Prime 4. Other than that, things have been pretty quiet for Samus.
Even though Samus didn’t show up at E3 2022 or the most recent Nintendo Direct in September 2022, it will be interesting to see if any new information comes out in the coming months. Read on to find out everything we know so far about Metroid Prime 4 in the meantime.
Metroid Prime 4 Release Date
Since 2017, everyone has been waiting for a release date for Metroid Prime 4. Shinya Takahashi said that Metroid Prime 4 was being scrapped and started over because it wasn’t being made to the standards Nintendo had hoped for. In the video, Takahashi said, “It will be a long time before we can give you an update on development, and it will take a long time to develop.” The key word here is “extensive,” which means it took a long time for Samus to come to the Switch finally.
Metroid Prime 4 still has no official release window because Nintendo said in May 2021 that there’s still no tentative release date.

The first Metroid Prime Trailer Was Short And Sweet
Yes, we did get a trailer, but as we said above, it didn’t tell us anything. It didn’t even tell us who the original developers were. In reality, it was just a way to get people excited, but we still remember the chills we got when the title came out and put us on the path to seeing Samus Aran again. As the saying goes, all good things come to those who wait.
Metroid Prime 4 Is Now Being Developed By Retro Studios, Which Is A Good Thing
Even though the last update upset many people, bringing Retro Studios on board is a good thing, and this do-over will probably give us the next Metroid game we’ve all been waiting for. Retro studios made the excellent Metroid Prime trilogy for the GameCube and Wii, so this is where Retro belongs. It makes sense for this studio to be in charge of the next game in the series. Retro is the only one who can do Samus justice.
Metroid Prime Story – What Could Happen?
When development starts over and nothing has been shown or even hinted at so far, it’s hard to say. We can only guess based on Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, which doesn’t give us much to go on. The third part of the trilogy had different endings depending on how many items you found by the end of the game. Each ending was a little different, but they were all pretty open-ended, and in the end, Dark Samus and the Phazon were defeated no matter what happened. Now, the story of Metroid Prime 4 could really go in any direction. Samus can go anywhere in the galaxy. Well, at least until new bad guys or things that can be corrupted show up to cause more trouble.
Metroid Prime 4 Gameplay
Again, nothing is for sure yet, but in the last Metroid Prime games we played from Retro Studios, we shot cannons from a first-person perspective. Metroid Prime 4 could be made similarly and use gameplay elements from the first three games. We might still have to solve puzzles and jump from platform to platform. Things like Samus’s helmet display and radar might also be back.
