A teaser with the game’s logo at E3 2017. That is the balance we have today about Metroid Prime 4, one of the most desired titles in the Nintendo Switch catalog. We know that its development has been turbulent, that it has changed hands, and that for a few months, Retro Studios, responsible for the Prime trilogy, has been at the forefront. But no sign of any new image or trailer.
Like a few weeks ago, the only news or threads of hope about Metroid Prime 4 come through the Retro Studios jobs page. Now, the company has opened profiles to incorporate employees in the position of responsible for AI and level design, as they have published through their Twitter account.

The positions are to work in Metroid Prime 4, as reflected in the image starring Samus Aran. Sometimes the descriptions tend to give the odd clue, but this time you can’t deduce too much detail about it. In the position of Head of AI, they mention boss battles and planning thoughtful experiences. While when it comes to level design, they mention creating attractive scenarios in single player environments.
Waiting to know something new about Metroid Prime 4, in a few hours we will have a new Indie World in which Nintendo will show more about its upcoming projects created by independent developers.
