We have some great news for the fans of Metroid Prime as it’s rumored that Metroid Prime Trilogy is coming to Switch. This Metroid Prime Trilogy has been listed by a Swedish retailer who also mentions that this game will be announced at the upcoming The Game Awards 2018.
Do take it all with a grain of salt as the retailer has mentioned that this listing is based on a rumor. As for the listing goes, Metroid Prime Trilogy will release on Nintendo Switch in 2019.
This Metroid Prime Trilogy was originally released on Wii and Wii U years back. This Metroid Prime Trilogy includes Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes released on GameCube. And Metroid Prime 3 released on Wii only.
Now as we all know that Metroid Prime 4 is in development so it makes perfect sense. Nintendo could bring this trilogy to make everyone familiar with the story of all previous games before they get their hands on Metroid Prime 4.
Now that aside, there’s not much that we know about Metroid Prime 4 since its reveal. So the fans are more than excited to hear more about it.
Nintendo last year announced Switch ports of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 before revealing Bayonetta 3 so they could be doing the same with Metroid series.
As of the Metroid Prime 4 goes, it’s well in development. Fils-Aime also admitted in an interview with Mashable that they announced the game earlier. Though Nintendo always announces their games closer to the release date which wasn’t the case with Metroid Prime 4.
Typically six months to maybe a year out is what we like to do, but there are times for strategic reasons that we believe it’s important to message that a game is coming,” Fils-Aime said. “We did that years and years ago with Zelda. We were messaging a new Zelda experience back during the days of the Wii U… It really depends on the game, it depends on the type of development that it’s going through, and it depends on how we feel the consumer is going to respond to the particular message.
The Game Awards 2018 is just a few days away. The Game Awards 2018 is the biggest event in history and it takes place on December 6. It’s confirmed that it will include announcements more than ever before this year.
Many new games are expected to be revealed at The Game Awards 2018. The long-awaited Avengers project is also rumored to be a part of it. Other than that, developers of Fallout: New Vegas, Obsidian is also teasing a brand new RPG title which will be revealed at TGA 2018. Their Fallout: New Vegas was a big success and people are now expecting this upcoming game to be New Vegas 2.
Well looks like there’s a lot to take for now so we will just wait till TGA 2018 to know which game is really coming or not. We will be covering everything from the event so keep coming back to hear the latest news.
