Bandai Namco is beavering away on the highly anticipated Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch, sources close to Eurogamer have said. No more details have been added though, so there's no clue on the status of the project, let alone a potential launch date.
Metroid Prime 4 was announced at E3 a year ago, though no lead developer was revealed, and no gameplay or trailer was shown.

Do you want this rumour to be true? That particular job posting states that Bandai Namco Singapore is looking for a lead designer to work on an unannounced IP first-person shooter/action adventure game exclusive for Nintendo Switch, among other games.
Development of this latest installment in the beloved Metroid Prime series will be a partnership between the Bandai Namco team and Nintendo's in-house developers.

In particular, Press-Start noted how Bandai Namco Studios Singapore staff members had not tried very hard to hide they were working on something exciting.
Rumors earlier this week were floating around about Metroid Prime 4 being developed by an unexpected studio. Out in the open, this turns out to not be entirely surprising, given that Nintendo and Bandai Namco have partnered together in the past, specifically with Pokken Tournament for Wii U and later the Nintendo Switch. GameSpot contacted Bandai Namco regarding the report; the company simply stated it had no comment to make at this time. During a media pre-briefing, journalists asked Nintendo exactly who was behind the game.
