This was confirmed by Eurogamer. In the past, the site’s had a solid track record of what to expect from game companies. Bandai Namco Singapore staffers include those who have worked on the ambitious Star Wars 1313 that was cancelled amidst Disney buying out LucasArts.
Past games in the Metroid Prime series were developed by the US-based Retro Studios under supervision from Nintendo. For Metroid Prime 4 Nintendo has confirmed in the past that Retro will not be a part of its development. This time around Bandai Namco Studios Singapore is the lead studio on the game collaborating with Nintendo.
Namco is, of course, no stranger to working with Nintendo on the latter’s biggest franchises. It developed Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U, as well as Pokémon spin-off Pokkén Tournament for Wii U and Switch.
