The announcement of Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch was one of the surprise hi-lights of Nintendo’s E3 press conference, but Nintendo has revealed more information that suggests we may get a different game from the rest of the franchise.

Nintendo’s Bill Trinen revealed Retro Studios, the team behind the first three Metroid Prime titles, would be not developing the latest entry. Instead, a “talented new development team” will be bringing Samus to the Nintendo Switch. However, Metroid Prime series producer Kensuke Tanabe will oversee the production, which should give a small glimmer of hope the core first-person shooter gameplay elements will remain intact.

Besides being currently in development, the teaser for Metroid Prime 4 didn’t include any other significant details. However, the last Metroid title released, 2016’s not so beloved Metroid Prime: Federation Force, might hold a clue to what story we can expect. At the end of the game, Sylux is seen hatching a Metroid egg, which ties in with the ending of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption where he is chasing down Samus. At E3 2015, Tanabe expressed if there were to be another primary Prime entry he had an idea that would link Samus and Sylux closer together, which is just another reason to believe Prime 4 could tell that story.
