Bandai Namco rumored (all but confirmed tbh) to be Metroid Prime 4 developer
SIAP


Developed Super Smash 4 and DBFZ FYI


quote:

One staff member in particular, a lead designer, described themselves as working on an "unannounced IP (first person shooter/adventure exclusive to the Nintendo Switch)". This staff member also listed themselves as overseeing work on an exclusive Ridge Racer 8 for Switch, too - something Eurogamer has yet to also verify.

Bit of a reach there FromSoftware developed that.
Bandai Namco had something to do with it but were not the main developer.

I feel like they are more suited for something like F-Zero.

Bandai Namco is pretty hit or miss overall.

In this case, Nintendo is probably lending a heavy hand to the project which is usually a good thing.

Saying it over and over again doesn't make this true. Most people recently disliked the Online announcements across the board.

Giving justification for maybe their often weird decisions, doesn't mean they still aren't bad and, in that case, limiting, decisions.

My gut reaction is that this is bad, but I know that Nintendo will keep tight supervision of the production. The developer for Metroid: Samus Returns, MercurySteam, is pretty hit or miss (mostly miss imo) and people seemed to like that game, though I haven't had a chance to play it myself.

This does raise the question of what is Retro Studios working on right now? Porting Tropical Freeze? Another DK game? I'm disappointed they aren't behind MP4.

3rd best true metroid game in the series if we are counting remakes as separate games.
