Metroid Prime 4 Is "Well In Development", Says Reggie Fils-Aime

Classic console collectors are in for a bit of disappointing news today: Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime has stated that there are no N64 Classic plans at this point in time... but that may not be the end of the story. Nintendo has even gone so far as releasing a special save file for The Legend of Zelda, and when that was launched, Nintendo suggested that it might do more like that in the future.

NOA's president mentioned that Nintendo usually announces and launches within six months, 'but there are times for strategic reasons that we believe it's important to message that a game is coming. While an N64 Classic Edition would nearly certainly have been a big hit, Nintendo probably would rather consumers focus on its first-party games this holiday season, especially when taking into consideration how slow this year has been for the Switch in general.

While it is uncertain as to what level of support Nintendo fans will see for some of their most-beloved classic titles, one thing is certain: they shouldn't be holding their breath on an N64 Classic. "But what I can tell you is certainly that's not in our planning horizon". The next natural step for Nintendo would be to release a miniature replica of the next console in line, the Nintendo 64 (stylized N64), right?

The Waldorf Astoria in Shanghai and the Sheraton in Guiyang city also apologised and said they were reviewing their procedures. The Shangri-La Hotel in Fuzhou told Sina.com the video was genuine and that its hygiene standards had not been upheld.

"So while consumers may have been anticipating something, we view these as limited time opportunities", continued Fils-Aime.

Nintendo of America top man Reggie Fils-Aime recently spoke to Mashable about Metroid Prime 4, saying that the video game giant has 'expectations about when [Metroid Prime 4] is going to be released.

Anyway, gamers who are still nostalgic over the golden era can rejoice at the thought that they can still find the NES and SNES Classic consoles available for purchase. Fils-Aime did say that Nintendo is aware that consumers want access to classic content, which he notes is something that will "happen more and more with the subscription service". All of Nintendo's ducks are in a row - but an N64 Classic Edition still may not be happening. But ends it by saying that's they're not now planning to make any more Classic consoles.
