Metroid 4 was announced last year during Nintendo's Direct during all of the E3 hubub. No other gameplay has been shown, or information has been seen since.

Still, I hope this E3 we get to see something during this year's direct.

I'm honestly expecting to see something about it at E3 this year.

I don't know if I'll pick it up, but I remmeber trying a prime demo once at a store and it was pretty cool. Smile

...Um, technically, it's Metroid Prime 4, because Prime is a subseries of Metroid based around the titular Metroid (long story).

I can tell you my exact reaction when I first saw the announcement of that game; it's actually a very simple one, though confusing to most for some reason.



FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, WHY?! Metroid Prime is an AMAZING trilogy thanks to its simple, minimalistic yet deep and moving story-telling and great gameplay! The story was complete at the end of Prime 3; WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?!

I suppose I'm just a weird person like that, but I think that any story that has a clear ending to its tale shouldn't need a sequel. Sure, you can have series like Die Hard and Mario that are based around the same characters but with different, vastly unrelated plots, but the key is that there is still a potential threat to those types of stories. There will always be a criminal for John McClane to arrest, or Bowser trying to kidnap Peach. But Metroid Prime clearly ended its story with no loose ends; the Prime Trilogy is over! DON'T RUIN THAT!

Maybe they won't try to reopen the prime storyline, but introduce a new plot to it?

It might be okay MCCT. Smile

No, that's exactly what I DON'T want them to do! "Metroid Prime" MEANS something in the series. There was a point to naming Metroid Prime 2 what it was. And with the ending of Metroid Prime 3, that meaning is lost unless they pull some BULLS*** that will make me want to defenestrate whoever wrote the damn thing!

Isn't Metroid Prime 4 just a working title? I thought it wasn't confirmed to be the official title. Blink

If it is just a working title, then why use the Metroid Prime 1 music in the reveal trailer? Metroid Prime 1 had a very distinct theme song, and it's exactly the same as the one here. And each of the other games have their own variation of the theme song, so it's not like it could be mixed up for another game.

I don't know, I always felt there was info lacking on the other bounty hunter characters introduced in MP:3. Also the ending felt a bit rushed, like we missed something going on in the background somewhere. I always had a feeling that ending was never quite what it seemed, dark Samus can't be defeated so easily. We've seen at least 2 iterations of her & I sort of felt the ending where she's defeated, might have been a tad overblown. But, that's my opinion.
