One heavyweight game that has not been seen this E3 is Metroid Prime 4. As fans wait eagerly for even a shred of news about Nintendo’s first-person shooter, the game did not show up at Nintendo’s E3 this year.
Explaining the reason as to why Nintendo did not talk about Metroid Prime 4, Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime said the game is not due for a 2018 release and it is just not fair to continually tease the fan about a game that is not going to come out within a six to nine month timeframe.
“We believe it is not fair to the fan to repeatedly tease them (fans) over time about a game. That’s why we tend to focus close in, typically in a six- to nine-month timeframe, and go deep in sharing content and information on a particular piece of content. But right now, for something that’s not launching in 2018, it just wasn’t the right time.”
So there you have it, we shouldn’t be expecting Metroid Prime 4 until maybe late 2019.
