Nintendo may not be the first name on your lips when you think of classic shooters, but the Big N does happen to have a trio of terrific blasters under their belt from a bygone era: The Metroid Prime trilogy. The return of Samus Aran way back in 2002 was the stuff of legend. Metroid Prime was gorgeous, fast-paced and beautifully optimised for console.
Fast forward to almost two decades after that game was released, and Metroid Prime 4 seems to be oddly dormant despite having been announced by Nintendo back at E3. So what gives? Well, it looks like Nintendo just isn’t happy with progress on the project, and they’ve decided to go back to the drawing board.
