Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Metroid Prime 4 reveal hinted for Game Awards!?

Asriel said:

I wouldn't necessarily say this is definitely a tease, but I think after the Cranky Kong debacle a few years back, Nintendo have a much better sense of the kind of announcements and trailers that the Game Awards' audience will expect or respond to, and Metroid fits the bill. It's a more 'serious' Nintendo title which will target an older demographic, and it's something critics and journalists will get excited about, which will move the hype cycle.

If you think, since the Cranky announcement at the Spike Awards in 2013, at the Game Awards Nintendo have shifted approach. They had early Zelda footage in 2014 (the first gameplay footage of the game), a Zelda trailer in 2016, and Bayonetta 3 and the Bayonetta ports for Switch in 2017 (I don't think Nintendo announced anything in 2015?). The emphasis on games like Zelda and Bayonetta, means that something like a Prime 4 reveal would make a lot of sense this year. I'd been hoping it would happen - we might even see a Prime Trilogy HD announcement as a release for early 2019, as with last year's Bayo 1/2 ports.

To be fair TGA is quite different format and much bigger show generaly than VGX, and Nintendo was very good at TGA from beginning of that show in 2014.

We can certainly hope. I remember the year Reggie wore a Metroid pin to the game awards. I think it may have actually been a Samus pin. People asked him if it was a hint, and he said no, it was just to remind people that the series existed. People were sure he was just being cagey, but there was no Metroid announcement, it was just Cranky Kong in Tropical Freeze. People thought maybe a Metroid announcement was coming soon, but nope, nothing, not for Wii U, not for 3DS, nothing. He was actually wearing the pin to remind people the series existed.

Nintendo was so out of touch back then...

OT: I hope they show Metroid at the Awards



It's going to be a re-reveal of Bayonetta 3



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Before the Switch released I had an idea for Bayonetta 3's reveal, where it would look like Nintendo was making another dark mature Zelda, only to find out it was just Bayonetta in a Link costume xD
