Reggie Fils-Aimé has released a small one update on Metroid Prime 4 during an interview with Game Informer during this year's E3. Despite the absence of the title, much awaited after last year's teaser, Nintendo of America president said that the development of the title makes steady progress.

"Last year it was crucial for us to tell Metroid fans that there was a new Metroid Prime experience in development when we showed Metroid: Samus Returns for 3DS. We didn't want fans to say 'have you just launched a new console, when will a Metroid arrive on this platform?'So we said it was coming. This year, with so many games actually being released between now and the first half of next year, we wanted to focus on those games. Be sure, Metroid Prime 4 is still in development and progressing well. "

During the same conversation with Game Informer, Reggie was questioned about the possibility of a mini Nintendo 64, and replied:

"Look, we know our fans love our old products. Working in this business for 40 years, we know we have a lot of products to surprise our consumers with. We are aware of this, so stay connected. Now the focus is on allowing consumers who want the NES Classic a second chance to be able to buy it. I think it will go very well during the holidays. "
