Welcome to Nintendo Voice Chat! Metroid Prime 4 was announced almost three and a half years ago, and there's still no launch window in sight for the long-awaited sequel. This week, join Zach Ryan, Tom Marks, Janet Garcia, and Seth Macy as they recount Metroid Prime 4's history to this point, and give their best guesses for when the game will actually release. Plus, reactions to Nintendo's latest sales numbers, an update to IGN's Top 25 Switch Games list, and more!
