Rumour: Bandai Namco Singapore developing Metroid Prime 4 & Ridge Racer 8

Big news for fans of Samus, Ridge Racer and the Switch.  A lead designer over at Namco has let slip on his LinkedIn Profile that the Japanese giant could be working on Metroid Prime 4 for the Nintendo Switch and also, Namco favourite Ridge Racer could be coming exclusively to Switch. Now is a good time to be a Switch owner.

How real could this be? Well, it’s not uncommon for Nintendo to let outside developers have a go at making some of their beloved franchises. The original Metroid Prime was developed by Retro Studios. As for Ridge Racer, it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that Namco are making a game exclusive¬†for the hand-held, just like they have done with the PSP and PS Vita. I’m sure Ridge Racer 8 will come to other consoles, just the Switch will get an exclusive version.
