We can all dream… Can’t we?

A picture has recently leaked, with a picture of the WiiU gamepad with the title of Metroid Prime 4, but with a very reminiscent look of the Metroid Prime Trilogy menu.  Is it real or just an easy way to fool fans of the franchise?  As with the rumors of Retro making a Starfox game (Not the Starfox/Metroid rumor which got busted earlier), there doesn’t seem to be any possibility for them to be making a new entry into the Prime series. If the rumor is true, it might mean that Nintendo is trying to give the Metroid franchise to new hands, but that seems a bit doubtful. There could be a good reason to make a Metroid Prime 4, though, knowing the ending for the Prime Trilogy. But when we get down to it, the photo looks a lot like the Metroid Prime Trilogy menu, which is extremely lazy, even for a prototype.
We can only wait for tomorrow when Nintendo pumps it up with their whole 3 separate conferences over the course of E3. So if Metroid is not there for you, there might be some other stuff to interest you there.




  • Considering the quality of the image, the “4” looks far too good to be legit, so I’ll cry fake on this one. I won’t even speculate until all is revealed tomorrow.

    I think it looks fake to me. But I guess we’ll see tomorrow.

  • I’m pretty sure it’s a fake too. That is definitely the Metroid Prime Trilogy screen. Wouldn’t it be nice, though?

    I doubt it. Although, Retro Studios is working on a new project. 

    • It could easily be Metroid Prime 4.  Considering how successful the Metroid Prime series was with the core gaming crowd and given Nintendo’s current efforts to win back said core gaming crowd, I find Metroid Prime 4 is entirely within the realm of possibility.

      I meant for the picture. It looks a bit fake to me. There is a good chance for a new game prime style. Other M did not do to well, so they will most likely wither try a new style, or go back to a proven style.

    That is why a lot of people does not believe in UFOs because its these guys who’s making a fool out of it. If this is fake, then this is the work of irresponsible people. The angle of the screen is not flat, not simetry.
