Bandai Namco and Nintendo’s Metroid Prime 4 for June 2018 debut at E3

Gamers, the rumours are indeed true; there is a Metroid Prime 4 for the Nintendo Switch. Considered the hottest selling console gaming platform of 2017 as noted in How the Nintendo Switch is the hottest Gaming Console in US History, the Metroid Prime 4 would be like taking out the good cutlery to serve to the guests!!! But the real surprise for gaming enthusiasts is that longtime Metroid Prime developer Retro Studios would not be working on the project; that honour is being given to Bandai Namco Studios Singapore. They are being tipped to be the lead studio responsible for developing Metroid Prime 4.
