Metroid Prime 4 was finally announced today and will eventually be released for Nintendo Switch.

People are still riding high after Nintendo confirmed Metroid Prime 4 being in development but we have a new reason to hold on to the 3DS. It's coming in the form of Metroid: Samus Returns which is basically a remake of Metroid II with improved graphics and controls. As well as gorgeously detailed 3D worlds there are also retro side-scrolling mini-games, just to mix things up.

Pokémon RPG will be a full-fledged game in the series, not a puzzle game, fighter, or port of an existing title. This new title is called Metroid: Samus Returns, and it goes right down memory lane.

Metroid Prime 4 was unveiled during the Nintendo E3 2017 Direct conference.

The HomePod , to be launched later this year, has six microphones built into it and is powered by Apple's smart assistant Siri. Apple's Tim Cook dusted off the "one last thing" gag for the finale of its WWDC17 keynote , revealing the new HomePod speaker.

Details on Metroid Prime 4 are otherwise incredibly vague, as Nintendo only showcased a title and the fact that the game has now entered development.

There aren't many other details about the game right now, other than it's currently in development, and we'll more than likely see more on the title come next year's Electronic Entertainment Expo.

There's very little information on the game at this point, but we'll be sure to provide updates as soon as they become available. It's another Switch game with a big focus on multiplayer following EA's announcement of a version of Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 developed especially for the console. Although not much is known about the game yet, the company did release a teaser trailer that shows the game's logo.
