There is always a flood of supposed leaks and rumors posted on the web daily. It’s always good practice not to put much weight into these leaks and rumors too. But sometimes, there are a few notable individuals with a proven track record that piques the interests of countless fans when new posts are made. Today, we’re finding out that a recent leak suggests that a Metroid Prime announcement will be coming out sooner than later. That’s, of course, if a prominent leaker on Reddit is to be believed.
Fun_Way_6592 has messaged moderators in the past for the GamingLeaksAndRumors subreddit. In the past, this individual has proven to be accurate. But to keep things a bit fun and interesting, the account offers small cryptic messages to get fans talking. A recent message went out to a moderator stating the following message:
“Do you think everyone is primed and ready?”
That has sparked plenty of conversation online, suggesting that we might soon see a Metroid Prime announcement coming our way. But we don’t have any concrete information as to what exactly could be unveiled. It was several years ago at this point that a Metroid Prime 4 was officially unveiled. Of course, that unveiling came before the game project was scrapped. Initially, the game build was being handled by Bandai Namco Studios but was since restarted and handed over to Retro Studios, the development team that handled the previous Metroid Prime titles.
While this was a major setback for the game, that transition happened in early 2019, so it could be at a state ready for marketing once again. However, this cryptic message could very well be another project outside of Metroid Prime 4. For one, this could be an announcement highlighting previous games coming to the Nintendo Switch as another means to catch players up on the series before the actual release of Metroid Prime 4. Regardless, we’ll have to wait and see if any actual announcement makes its way out from Nintendo.
Since we’re just starting in 2023, there are likely plenty of press media events planned. Nintendo could be gearing up for another Nintendo Direct upload to highlight some of the new games and content coming out in the near future. But that’s purely speculation right now, as we haven’t received any official announcement regarding a Nintendo Direct just yet.
