Metroid Prime 4 is a title that, every now and then, bounces back between rumors and rumors because too much time has passed since its disappearance.
The taste of Metroid Dread, also in a special edition on Amazon, was certainly enough for fans of the bounty hunter to while away the wait.
Five years have passed since your announcement, which was followed after another two years by the clean slate on the project and the subsequent restart of the works.
And while this year the first Metroid Prime turned twenty, a few hours ago an important clue arrived for the arrival of the new chapter.
It’s not Nintendo making suggestions of any kind, but an extremely reliable leaker who foresees the return of Metroid Prime 4.
The story reported by My Nintendo News also provides us with an interesting history of Fun Way, the leaker in question, who often predicted Nintendo’s announcements with extreme accuracy.
The leaker predicted in a sibylline Skyward Sword HD, Splatoon 3 and the latest Wario Ware before being announced in their respective Directs.
He also recently teased the name of the Breath of the Wild sequel, sending a message to a Reddit moderator in which he said that players would cry “tears of joy” (“Tears of joy”, in English).
Deep throat is back in the fray by sending a new message: “Do you think everyone is primed and ready?”, which can be translated into in Italian >“Do you think everyone is prepared and ready?”.
Since he adopted the same modus operandi for each confirmed leak, this time it is likely that Metroid Prime 4 is making a comeback.
Or, as another plausible option, Nintendo could announce Metroid Prime in a remastered or remake version, a ‘another possibility that has often been reported by many knowledgeable.
Considering that initially the release of this package was placed for the Christmas holidays of this year, there is still the month of January as a possible time window.
Speaking of Nintendo Switch, if Metroid Prime 4 is a candidate to be one of the best video games when it comes out, which ones are the worst of the year for Nintendo Switch?
