When Nintendo dropped the tease for Metroid Prime 4 at their Spotlight event at E3 2017, no information was given beside the fact that it was in-development. The same can be said for Bayonetta 3 at The Games Awards 2017. Now, it appears we could have some clarity as to when these highly-anticipated games will be coming out: according to Nintendo’s Norwegian website, 2018 will feature the release of Bayonetta 3, Metroid Prime 4, and Kirby: Star Allies. The untranslated text can be seen below:
Of course, once translated, the text actually reads: “The year 2017 has definitely been Nintendo’s year and we are looking forward to 2018, which will include new games like Bayonetta 3 , Metroid Prime 4 and Kirby: Star Allies as well as many other games that we will reveal during the year.” This could mean that big, unannounced games are still on the horizon for the Nintendo Switch.
In addition to the curious post today, the long-rumored Nintendo Direct for January will hopefully shed some light on this topic, among other things. Stay tuned for any more details regarding this development.
