METROID PRIME 4
The sequel we demanded.
By JAY TEE
In a delightful fan pleasing dose of E3 hype, Nintendo dropped the big one and announced Metroid Prime 4 last year. That unmistakable font was enough to wet the appetite of even the most sceptical of early Switch adopters.
However, even though the surprise reveal created a frenzy of anticipation, it contained no further information and was followed by swift radio silence. Despite
no gameplay being shown, the prospect of recording to our logbooks and blasting Ridley on the go was (and still is) very exciting. But what exactly IS this game
going to be? Do they stick with the formula? Or is this a Breath of the Wild style reinvention?
Whatever their approach, this is absolutely the right time for Nintendo to double down on nostalgia, and potentially create something fresh. Metroid is long overdue a new approach; it worked pretty well for Zelda, and now it’s time for Samus to return to the spotlight.
