Metroid Prime 4 Being Developed by Bandai Namco


Rumors have been flying around naming Bandai Namco as the developer behind the newest Metroid adventure, and now Eurogamer is reporting that "multiple sources" have confirmed this information as accurate.

Past games in the Metroid Prime series were developed by the US-based Retro Studios under supervision from Nintendo. No more details have been added though, so there's no clue on the status of the project, let alone a potential launch date. Eurogamer points out that this studios is housing former LucasArts Singapore staffers who were working on a cancelled Star Wars 1313 game. As Bill Trinen put it at E3 2017, Metroid Prime 4 would be in the hands of Kensuke Tanabe and "a talented new development team".

Earlier this week we discovered that Bandai Namco is seemingly working on an unannounced first-person shooter exclusive to Nintendo Switch. They have robust credits developing and publishing many popular franchises, including the Tales games, Ace Combat, .hack// games, Soul Caliber, Xenosaga, Tekken, Dark Souls, and I could keep going on. However, none of the listings say what kind of game the candidate would be working on.
