Two big games that Nintendo is working on right now are Metroid Prime 4 and a new Yoshi game. Neither of these titles were mentioned during today’s E3 presentation, and some fans were left wondering why. Nintendo’s Bill Trinen explained why we won’t be seeing either of these titles this week:
“I think the main thing is, as people have probably realized by now – we show things when we think we’re ready to show them. And when we think we’re ready to show Metroid Prime, we’ll show Metroid Prime.” — Bill Trinen
Trinen elaborated further, saying that last year was different for Nintendo. The Switch was still a brand new console and they wanted to get people excited for titles that were further out. This year, they wanted to go back to games that were coming out within the next year.
But some people are still wondering about that new Yoshi game. Fans were under the impression that it was pretty far in development. When asked about it, Trinen only said that we would see more updates on the game “later this year.” Additionally, it’s since been noticed that Nintendo’s official site for Yoshi now lists the game as launching in 2019.
