During Nintendo’s livestream presentation at E3 it was announced that Nintendo Switch gamers will soon have two fan favourite titles to look forward to. Both Metroid Prime 4 and a new Pokemon game were announced as currently in development, however there’s no title for the Pokemon game as yet, nor is there any hint to what the game may be. The Metroid Prime 4 title did get a very teasing trailer though, which you can see below…
The news for the Pokemon game from Tsunekazu Ishihara of The Pokemon Company who stated that Game Freak (the developers behind the Pokemon games on the 3DS) were working on it and that we may not see it hit the shelves for over a year. Nintendo’s Shinya Takahashi followed the announcement with “What kind of Pokemon game will we be able to play on Nintendo Switch? I’m looking forward to trying it myself”.
Personally, they won me over with the word Pokemon.
As for the Metroid Prime 4 announcement, this has instantly got fans excited as there have been constant calls for a sequel since Metroid Prime 3 released in 2007. This latest game in the franchise will be developed by Kensuke Tanabe, creator of the first ever Metroid Prime title.
