Metroid Prime 4 Delayed And Rebooted

The game has "not reached the standard we seek in a sequel to the Metroid Prime series".

Metroid Prime 4, a title we knew nothing about anyway, is being rebooted, Nintendo has announced today.

It’s a move that is both welcome – Retro Studios and original producer Kensuke Tanabe will lead the project – and unwelcome too, development time will be extensive.

In classic (and somewhat admirable) Nintendo fashion, the event is being taken very seriously:

It’s a significant blow for Prime fans, and it could be years before we see game 4, but it should more than deliver when it arrives.

You better keep yourself busy for the next 48 months.
