Eurogamer: Bandai Namco Studios Singapore developing Metroid Prime 4

Reportedly still early in development.

Metroid Prime 4

Bandai Namco Studios Singapore is the lead studio developing Metroid Prime 4 in collaboration with Nintendo, according to a Eurogamer report citing multiple sources.

The studio employs former LucasArts Singapore staff who previously worked on the cancelled Star Wars 1313, among other things.

Metroid Prime 4 was announced for Switch at E3 2017. The announcement contained nothing more than a logo, and Nintendo did not announce which studio was developing the project.

According to Eurogamer, there is no indication that Metroid Prime 4 will launch this year, as the game is still early in development.

Eurogamer said it has yet to verify another rumor that popped up alongside Metroid Prime 4 earlier this week, which is that Bandai Namco Studios Singapore is also developing Ridge Racer 8 exclusively for Switch.
