Many were surprised that Nintendo didn’t showcase the much-anticipated Metroid Prime 4 game during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct E3, especially since it’s been quite a while since the game was announced.

It seems that the game is still very early in development because Nintendo’s Bill Trinen told IGN that “we want to show stuff when we think it’s ready to show.”

Trinen added, “Obviously it’s not like we’ve stopped working on any of the things we talked about last year, that stuff’s all being worked on. We’ll just show stuff when we’re ready to show it and really, right now, the focus is on two big games in the form of Smash and Pokemon [Let’s Go Eevee and Let’s Go Pikachu].”

It’s surprising that Nintendo didn’t even bring a teaser trailer of Metroid 4. Or a simple CGI trailer like many other publishers brought this year. At the very least, it could have had people talking about the game.
