Metroid fans have been waiting years to see a continuation of the Metroid Prime series, and their patience was rewarded today when Nintendo confirmed the development of Metroid Prime 4 for the Switch.

Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime was asked about a new Metroid game prior to the release of the Nintendo Switch, and his response was interesting.

As of this writing, the above option is without a price, but Nintendo appears to be treating the Metroid II: Return of Samus remake with the fanfare that gamers would have expected. The game will also feature Amiibo functionality with current and new Amiibo including an actual Metroid one but it was not said what the Amiibo would add to the game.

Metroid Prime 4 launches in 2018 exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Again, no release window or other information was given yet, but fans don't have to worry about going another console generation without stepping back into the armor of Samus. All the games in the series have been developed by Retro Games, but Metroid Prime 4's developer is now not known. Fans have been clamouring for a proper Metroid Prime sequel for ages, and Nintendo have finally listened.

After the announcement of the game on Nintendo's Treehouse Live, original Metroid co-director Yoshio Sakamoto and developer MercurySteam's José Luis Márquez revealed more about the upcoming Nintendo 3DS title.

Check out the trailers from the Nintendo conference and tell us what you think. Nintendo revealed more details on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild DLC, Xenoblade 2, and Fire Emblem Warriors as well. It's another Switch game with a big focus on multiplayer following EA's announcement of a version of Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 developed especially for the console.
