If anything I think it'll be released sooner as a sort of consolation for Metroid fans. And if Prime 4 was originally going to be released this year or early next year then a gap needs to be filled.

From the looks of it, yes. I’ve no idea how many staff Retro actually have, enough to finish off development of one game (if the Star Fox Grand Prix game was actually real or not) while simultaneously starting Metroid Prime 4 development from the start?


They've probably just been helping Nintendo's various teams with other projects, instead of developing their own stuff.

They should use the extra time to make it even more pretty. And also add in more bonus unlockable skins, like the Fusion Suit.

The Fusion suit was in MP, though I think only MP and not its sequels.

Oh I know, so let's get it in the sequels.
