Nintendo Co. Ltd. this week said it will restart development for Metroid Prime 4 for the Nintendo Switch.
Shinya Takahashi, Senior Managing Executive Officer at Nintendo, said in a video released this week that the company was not satisfied with the quality of the current title and development will not continue.
Instead, the company will restart development at Retro Studios. Retro Studios developed all previous Metroid Prime titles released between 2002 and 2007.
Metroid Prime was released to the Nintendo GameCube in 2002. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes released in 2004. Finally, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption was released to the Wii in 2007.
A release date is to be determined.
