For the moment, nothing is to be declared on the side of this fourth episode, but it seems that things are moving around the founding episode of this branch of the Metroid license. While a Nintendo Direct mini is held tomorrow to discuss the games in preparation within third-party studios (likeHollow Knight: Silksong or Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope), All eyes are on a new indiscretion tonight from GiantBomb site reporter Jeff Grubb.

A remastering of Metroid Prime 1, but not only!

It’s been a while since there have been rumors around the arrival of a remaster of Metroid Prime on nintendo-switch. Some rumors even claiming that it has been over for a while, without any real confirmation on this subject. However, Jeff Grubb came to add fuel to the fire concerning this mysterious remaster which would arrive, according to his sources, to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the episode released on Nintendo GameCube. Here are the recent comments of the journalist on the subject:

I can say that I’ve been pretty definitively told that Metroid Prime Remastered will be one of their big Christmas games (…) In the past I had heard that something was in the works and that it things were going on with this game. Now I’ve been told that they were planning to release it during the holiday season, and I think it’s almost certain that it will coincide with the 20th anniversary in November.

This statement should delight players who experienced this opus in the early 2000s, but what follows may delight them even more. Still according to Grubb, Nintendo would not stop at this single episode: Metroid Prime 2 and Metroid Prime 3 would also have the right to a reissue, even if it would be much less spectacular than that reserved for Metroid Prime, first of the name. We just have to wait for more information from Nintendo: however, the time will seem very long until November 18 (date of the original release in North America)!
