However, the game was initially in the hands of Bandai Namco Studios. In 2019, it announced that the game developed by Bandai Namco Studios does not match the standard of Nintendo.

Release Date: “Metroid Prime 4”
The official announcement for the fourth installment of the Metroid Prime series was during an internet exhibition in E13 2017. Till then, the game was in the hands of Bandai Namco Studios and was developing under them. But, Nintendo EPD general director Shinya Takashi made an announcement that now the development of the game will restart. The Bandai Namco Studios could not meet the expectations and criteria of Nintendo. Consequently, the action video-game is under construction in Retro Studios.
Therefore, Metroid Prime 4’s development is about to resume from scratch. The fans who were waiting all these years for the action-adventure video game- Metroid Prime 4’s release now have to wait for some more time.
Moreover, the game is about to develop from the start; we are not anticipating to see it any soon. Fans have to wait for more likely three to four years again. We can assume Metroid Prime 4 to release in 2023 or 2024.
Development: “Metroid Prime 4”
The development of the new action-adventure game “Metroid Prime 4” has itself taken many twists. For this reason, we are anticipating the release of video games in 2023 or 2024 more likely.
2017: Nintendo announced Metroid Prime 4 in June 2017 during an internet exhibition. Bandai Namco Studios are the developers of the game instead of Retro Studios. The producer and publishers will remain same as of other Metroid Prime installments, Kensuke Tanabe, and Nintendo, respectively.
2018: The president of the Nintendo Reginald Fills has announced that the development is going well and, everything is going along the expectations. The development team also includes former LucasArts personnel. They had formerly worked on the starwars1313 game. This news gave fans a more promising attitude for the game.
2019: In January 2019, Shinya Takashi declared that the development of the game is now under Retro Studios. It revealed that the former developers could not maintain the criteria of Nintendo,
As a result, the development has to start from scratch again.
Now the game is still in progress. The fans have to wait for more to play Metroid Prime 4.
Gameplay: “Metroid Prime 4”
On the name of the trailer, what we have is a teaser with a logo of the game. However, the teaser released refers to a different Metroid Prime 4 experience. But we don’t have anything concrete to base gameplay points. The studio for the development of the game is changed. The teaser is according to the development of Bandai Namco Studios. Now, as they are not the developers anymore, we can expect a total change in the gameplay.
The development is entirely handed over to Retro Studios, not to mention who were also the developers for previous parts. We don’t have any concrete to base our expectations on, and thus it is tough to say anything about the game.
What we can anticipate is that gameplay will somewhat match with previous Metroid Prime games.
