During today’s Nintendo Spotlight E3 conference, a new entry in the popular sci-fi action platformer series Metroid was confirmed. Metroid Prime 4 was revealed in a short teaser video during the press event, the footage showing off a space environment, slowly pulling out to reveal a number “4” in the stars. The full Metroid Prime 4 logo then appears and presumably, as does large grins on everyone’s faces. Check it out for yourself below:

Outside of the video above, nearly nothing is known about Metroid Prime 4 outside of its development and eventual launch. Developer information, potential story, or even a release date of any kind has yet to be revealed. This fourth entry will mark the first “Prime” game in ten years, the last being 2007’s Metroid Prime 3: Corruption on the Nintendo Wii. Last year saw the spin-off title Metroid Prime: Federation Force come out for the Nintendo 3DS, but the game was not considered a proper sequel in the series.

Also revealed during the Nintendo press event was a brand new Samus adventure for the Nintendo 3DS. It is called Metroid: Samus Returns and it will reimagine the events and gameplay of the Game Boy title Metroid II: Return of Samus. The title is set to launch on September 15, 2017. You can check out the trailer for it below:
