Metroid Prime Remastered has been launched for the Nintendo Switch, following a shock announcement throughout the Nintendo Direct showcase final evening (February 8).
While insiders reported on Metroid Prime Remastered‘s existence in each 2021 and 2022, the remaster got here as a shock to many followers as Nintendo had introduced nothing previous to its reveal and same-day launch.
Originally launched for the GameDice in 2002, Metroid Prime follows armoured bounty hunter Samuis Arun as she explores the planet of Tallon IV. As detailed on Nintendo’s storefront, the Switch remaster options “revamped graphics, sound, unlockable art, and updated control schemes,” and permits gamers to make use of the sport’s authentic controls or extra trendy ones.
While a digital model of Metroid Prime Remastered is already available for purchase and play, a bodily launch is deliberate for March 3.

For those that haven’t performed the unique, Metroid Prime is a first-person journey recreation with taking pictures, platforming and puzzle parts.
As for the sport’s sci-fi setting of Tallon IV, the remaster’s storefront web page teases that gamers will “journey through diverse biomes as you uncover the Space Pirates’ sinister experiments and gather information about the toxic substance that left the planet in ruin.”
“From the quiet stillness of the snowy Phendrana Drifts to the magma geysers of Magmoor Caverns, this alien planet introduces beautifully harsh landscapes and labyrinths,” it provides.
Metroid Prime Remastered is the second Switch launch for the Metroid collection, following Metroid Dread in 2021. We awarded Metroid Dread 5 stars in our evaluation, and later named it Game Of The Year on the BandLab EpicGames News Awards 2022.
In different gaming information, Total War: Warhammer 3 is about to obtain three DLC launches all through 2023, following delays brought on by the sport’s Immortal Empires mode.
