Nintendo Announces Metroid Prime 4 is Restarting Development

The long saga of us getting a proper Metroid game on the Nintendo Switch continues as the company announced they've restarted Metroid Prime 4's development. The company sent out this video today, featuring Shinya Takahashi, who is responsible for development at Nintendo, explaining that Retro Studios has taken over the project and that the game is basically getting rebuilt from the ground up. Funny enough, Retro was responsible for the original Metroid Prime trilogy, so the game is basically going back to the studio that made the series to begin with. That being said, it's pretty safe to say you're not seeing a Metroid game for the Switch in 2019.
