If you fancy something more modern, Nintendo did announce that there will be a new Metroid Prime title coming out for the Switch.
Metroid Prime 4 is the game Metroid fans have been longing for since 2007. Has it really been ten whole years since Metroid Prime 3: Corruption came out for Wii? Revealed at E3, Metroid Prime 4 was teased via a short trailer that showed off a conspicuous number 4 emblazoned logo, but no gameplay. The latest entry in the Metroid Prime series won’t be developed by Retro Studios (responsible for the first three titles), but retains Nintendo Producer Kensuke Tanabe, part of the Metroid Prime trilogy team. Metroid Prime 4 is currently being developed for Nintendo Switch and will be releasing 2018 or later. We’re hoping that the game turns out great.
