Bandai Namco is producing Metroid Prime 4

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

Let the hype commence.

Bandai Namco’s Singapore studio is the secret developer behind Metroid Prime 4.

Rumors had been circling that Bandai Namco could behind the new title after developers at the Singapore studio made it clear they were working on exclusives for the console.

Multiple sources have since confirmed the news to Eurogamer, with the company’s Singapore studio taking the lead on the project.

Prime 4 was initially teased during Nintendo’s 2017 E3 broadcast, but we’ve heard nothing on the title since, indicating the project is still in very early stages.

There is precedent for Bandai Namco working on Nintendo IPs, with the company previously producing both Pokken Tournament and Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS.

Nintendo has not commented on the speculation, but it seems likely that Bandai Namco will be the group behind the highly anticipated revival of the Metroid Prime series.
