Rumor: Super Metroid remake and Metroid Prime trilogy are coming to the Switch

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Rumor: Super Metroid remake and Metroid Prime trilogy are coming to the Switch

According to 2 leakers we will be getting metriod prime trilogy and a remake of super metriod

Leaky panda isn't that trustable, but directfeedgames is mildly trustable. I think it's clear mercurysteam is working on another 2d metriod game. It just depends if it's a new one or a remake. Prime trilogy has long been rumored that it's just kind of obvious.

Would be nice if the Super remake used sprites instead of polygons, but I'll buy it regardless.

I feel like they wouldn't remake it if they were going to stick to sprites. But I agree. And I think Super Metroid still holds up well today as it is, so for a potential remake to be interesting, they'd have to add some substantial new content.

Yeah, I get that both of Nintendo's recent remakes (Metroid 2 and Link's Awakening) were done in 3D, and I doubt they would change that now.  I just have my preferences.

Anyways, the fact that it'll be on the switch means that it won't be nearly as ugly as Return of Samus was.



I'm not particulary fond of Samus Returns art direction...but I guess the 3DS hardware could have been a limiting factor.

Makes sense to have a 3D Metroid collection to bridge the time until the delayed new 3D Metroid comes as a launch title for the Switch 2.



I swear this "Metroid Prime Trilogy for Switch" news is coming back every 3 months and nothing has happened whatsoever.

This is worse than that rumored "Star Fox Grand Prix" that Retro was supposedly working on.
Just let it die. Like the franchise itself :D

Oh, they are going to release rakes during the time of a consoles life where people are still buying games? What a novel idea!

Samus Returns should have released two years prior to when it did, or wait until Switch. It wouldn't have bombed then.



I'll buy it if its true. I missed out on the Trilogy on the Wii.



I hate how easy people buy into rumours like these. Won't be getting excited any time soon. That said, the double "metriod" in the title is very fitting for this thread.

I don't want a Super Metroid remake, but I wouldn't mind it because the original is already on the Switch, so I can always go back and play that. The game is near-perfect, a remaster could fix everything that's needed, but if this rumour is true then that's not the kind of remake we'd be getting.

Prime Trilogy HD is long overdue.
