Metroid Prime Remastered is apparently coming this year

The rumors about some kind of Metroid Prime Remaster or collection have been around for years. With the release of Metroid Prime 4 still on the way, it looks like we’ll at least see the original game remastered, just in time for the game’s 20th anniversary in November.

This is according to Jeff Grubb who went to the Giant Bomb show this morning to share what he knew about the game. According to Grubb, the original Prime will get proper remaster treatment, while Metroid Prime 2 and 3 will likely just be re-released on the Nintendo Switch with new controls.

I think at this point we can safely say that we will be hearing about Metroid Prime Remastered in the near future. While Nintendo is holding a Nintendo Direct tonight, I have a feeling we probably won’t see it tonight.
