Nintendo has an exciting lineup of games that are currently in development. Everyone is anxiously anticipating the release of the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3, and much more. We know very little about what each game will entail, as we have only seen prerendered footage or a simple logo reveal. I can still remember the reveal of Metroid Prime 4; thinking about it gives me chills. Unfortunately, if you’re looking for updates on any of those games, Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser doesn’t have any.
In an interview with Polygon, Bowser commented on the status of these projects: ”You’ve followed Nintendo long enough to know that as we progress on any title, and we deem it’s the right moment, we will share with the community where we are in the development. At this point though, I have nothing more that I can share on those titles.” Fans will have to wait a little bit longer to hear more on these highly anticipated games. (Fortunately, Bowser did have slightly more to say about Xbox Game Pass, Mario games disappearing on March 31, and Joy-Con drift.)
It seems like Bayonetta 3 is progressing smoothly according to Hideki Kamiya, and we are likely to see more information in 2021. Metroid Prime 4 developer Retro Studios has been posting job listings for a while now, so it is hard to tell how far the game is in development. The Breath of the Wild sequel was announced at E3 2019. Since then we have had no updates aside from series director Eiji Aonuma also informing us that we will have to wait longer.
Hopefully 2021 will provide us with more information, especially for the Breath of the Wild sequel, as next year is the 35th anniversary of the Zelda series. The upcoming Switch lineup is looking fantastic, and we cannot wait to see more. What game are you most looking forward to playing?
