Nintendo of America: Metroid Prime 4 and Pokémon Switch will be released in 2018

According to Nintendo of America, we could well be playing the recently announced Metroid Prime 4 as early as next year on the Switch. That’s the plan anyway.


  • Charlie Scibetta from Nintendo of America has said that Metroid Prime 4, and the new Pokémon Switch game, will come out next year in an interview with VentureBeat
  • Scibetta says the Switch has great momentum, with strong first party and third-party support for the rest of the year
  • He says that the new Kirby and Yoshi games are very important for next year
  • States that Nintendo didn’t want to “front load” all their best games on day one – that’s why they’re coming out every month instead

You can find the full interview in the link below. It sounds too good to be true to us, but hopefully we’ll see either Metroid Prime or Pokémon next year – just one of them at least! What do you think? Let us know in the comments below, if you please.
