Nintendo Teases Metroid Prime 4 at E3 2017

It's been so long.

We're at E3 2017 covering the year's biggest gaming event. Be sure to check out all our coverage on our E3 2017 hub!

Last week, when we were all still young, fresh, and innocent, I playfully suggested Nintendo could win E3 this year if it simply said "Metroid" and didn't attach the words "Federation Force." Well is it too early to call a winner because Nintendo did exactly that with their Metroid Prime 4 teaser.

The teaser was very brief, with nothing more than some ambient Metroid music, and a mysterious "4", but it's real and Metroid Prime 4 appears to be in development.

We'll have more details as the story develops.
