Nintendo on why Metroid Prime 4 isn’t at E3 2018
This information comes from intendo America Bill Trinen and localization manager Nate Bihldorff…
Is there anything you can say about Metroid Prime 4? Is there a reason it wasn’t at the show this year?
Trinen: It’s still in development.
Bihldorff: But yeah, we’re not featuring it at E3 this year.
Trinen: I think the main thing is, as people have probably realized by now – we show things when we think we’re ready to show them. And when we think we’re ready to show Metroid Prime, we’ll show Metroid Prime.
More than a logo?
Bill: [Laughs] Last year was the first year for Switch at E3, so we took a bit of a departure from our usual approach to E3, which is to focus on more near-term stuff. Last year, because it was the first year for the hardware, we looked at things that were maybe a little further out. This year, you can see pretty clearly, we’re back to focusing on the near-term. We’ll have more to share with Metroid Prime 4 when we have something we think is going to wow people.
