Metroid Prime 4 was set to be a part of a star-studded 2019 Nintendo Switch lineup after being announced by Nintendo in 2017. However, an development update provided by senior managing executive officer Shinya Takahashi announced that progress on the game has been restarted, with Retro Studios taking over.

The news comes as bitter-sweet to many Metroid fans, who have waited a decade for a new entry in the Metroid Prime series. At the same time, having Retro Studios develop the game raises expectations and should ultimately result in a better product. It may be a few years before Metroid Prime 4 hits the Switch, but it should be worth the wait.
