Metroid Prime 2 during 2004
Miyamoto also reckons Shinji Mikami wants to work on a Nintendo property.
A bunch of reports this morning state that Shigeru Miyamoto's been talking about the sequel to Metroid Prime and potential future collaborations with Shinji Mikami, and the word on the cube-vine is that Miyamoto acknowledged the Resident Evil creator's desire to work on one of Nintendo's big franchises - a bit like Amusement Vision on F-Zero GX or Retro Studios with Metroid - and didn't rule it out for the future. And speaking of Metroid, Miyamoto also confirmed that the Cube sequel will be released sometime during 2004, which is definitely something to get excited about.
There is also a rumour doing the rounds today that Nintendo will announce some sort of new game at a Japanese press conference on August 7th. According to local magazine Nintendo Dream, the conference will focus on the current state of the company and possibly new games for its two main systems.
