Metroid Prime 4 Reportedly Launching This Year

Metroid Prime 4 will reportedly launch this year on Nintendo Switch, according to reliable insider and journalist Jeff Grubb. However, Grubb also reiterated that he’s uncertain if the plans have changed, though last he heard, Nintendo was looking to get assets ready by May 2024.

Last month, Brazilian media outlet Universo Nintendo claimed that Metroid Prime 4 was already in a ‘very advanced stage of development’, suggesting that it was nearing the finish line. Speaking on his recent podcast, Grubb added a bit of fuel to the fire stating that he’s more confident that Metroid Prime 4 will release this year considering that he got that information from the same source that told him about Epic Mickey Rebrushed, which was revealed during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct Partner showcase.

“Mike, I will say that this being confirmed gives me more confidence that we’ll get Metroid Prime 4 this year. I got the rumor from the same place,” said Grubb on the podcast, referring to his source that correctly called the reveal of Epic Mickey‘s remaster. However, Grubb later added that he’s not sure if Nintendo plans on releasing it this year but as of last year, he heard that Nintendo was getting ready to put together assets (used for marketing purposes) by May.

If the reports are true about Nintendo only launching its next-gen console in early 2025, that leaves quite a big gap in the company’s calendar for the second half of 2024. Apart from some third-party games, it’s unclear if Nintendo will have any major first-party titles ready by then. However, that might all change soon as The Pokemon Company will host a new Pokemon Presents event next week Tuesday, where a new Pokemon game could potentially be announced to fill the Q3/Q4 2024 gap.

Additionally, Metroid Prime 4 could also serve the same purpose and target a late 2024 release. As with all rumours and reports, take this with a grain of salt until we get a confirmation.
