Released Friday, 1st February 2019
 1 person rated this episode
Nintendo offered fans of the upcoming Metroid 4 Prime a straight-cut piece of news via a video this week where they announced that the game will be restarted at Retro Studios. This, of course, pleased many as they are the studio behind the original Prime Trilogy. But should everyone react so fast to a simple developer name? Shouldn't people check more often the same people behind the company name are working in these teams? And also, is this transparency good for the industry?
