E3 2017: Nintendo Announces 'Metroid Prime 4' For Switch

People are still riding high after Nintendo confirmed Metroid Prime 4 being in development but we have a new reason to hold on to the 3DS. Metroid II: The Return of Samus tasked players with exploring the titular Metroid's home planet, code-named SR88, with the sole task of eradicating every last Metroid spawn that resided on the odd planet.

Additionally, new to Metroid: Samus Returns are enemies that have all new behaviors and attack patterns that fit in line with the new 360 aiming mechanics.

We're still waiting for more information on this title to roll in from the reveal, but it seems that Samus Returns is a remake of the Game Boy's Metroid II. While players received a spin-off title called Metroid Prime: Federation Force, there hasn't been a core entry in the series since the early days of the Wii.

On the intergalactic stage, we recently got our first look at the action of Star Wars Battlefront II teasing forty years of battles and a number of familiar characters. It also let the skills and powers of Samus finally shine through, elevating the hero to new heights. However, considering how long it has been since the last game this is definitely more than enough to make fans of the series ecstatic.

Likewise, the release date remains a mystery, although it's extremely unikely that it will be released until at least late 2018.

Ishihara announced a Pokemon RPG for Nintendo Switch, but provided no further details. Everyone's favorite Italian plumber is back in Super Mario Odyssey.

Rocket League was also revealed for Nintendo Switch.

Since then, there have been a few Metroid titles kicking about, but none have satiated fans' desires.
