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

If this is true, why so many Metroid remakes? A new 2D Metroid game couldn't hurt, considering the development of MP4 is getting so many delays...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I love how easy people buy into rumours like these. As for me, Super Metroid is the only Metroid I care about because its the only Metroid that matters. I'd be very much looking forward to a remake if an official announcement is ever made.



Ok...if they remake Super Metroid, I don't want a Zero Suit Samus mission. I want a "Save the Animals" mission. I want to play as the Etecoons, as the Dachora and get the heck out. I want to know how the Etecoons and Dachora escaped their game loop and how they knew it was time to go. I want to see them get stuck in that room and have to await Samus' eventual rescue mission for them. I think in one respect it would just be an easy point A to point B for them from their original starting points to the room, but I also think they could make their rescue go into an entirely different region of the world farther below the existing map. This could even be a way to introduce us to a new Metroid spinoff featuring these amazing creatures. Ok, obviously I am biased. But I think it would be cooler than just mimicking Zero Mission. You could even have Samus encounter this part of the world and have to clear certain obstacles for their route to be successful. Perhaps on the first play through you'd see them get stuck at some obstacle and not be able to get through as the planet explodes. Would this be super dark? You bet! But it would also be very gratifying once you actually figure out their path to safety.

Good idea, but here's a better one:

After defeating Ridley and Mother Brain, Samus begins escaping planet Zebes. When arriving at her spaceship, however, she is attacked by a new, mechanized version of her archnemesis: Proto Ridley. Upon defeating Proto Ridley and completing her escape from Zebes, her spaceship is attacked by a new foe: Ridley Prime, her archnemesis reborn into his ultimate form. After a long battle in outer space (where you control Samus' ship), Ridley Prime is finally defeated for good and the end credits roll. If you've finished the game with 100% completion, however, an after-credits scene will reveal that Ridley has survived the encounter and transformed into Ultra Ridley - foreshadowing the upcoming battle in the Metroid franchise's next release, Metroid Fusion HD.

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

Well, it was confirmed by multiple reliable insiders last year. But then the whole MP4 development trouble happened, so it has been presumably delayed not to release too far apart from MP4...

There's certainly precedent of companies timing game remasters or ports to stoke up interest in sequels / future franchise titles, so I wouldn't discount it.

Slash that rumor coming from a meh leaker at best (she was into the Grinch Leak stuff lol).

I'd say it's more of an hypothetical guess, pretty sure Mercury is working on a new 2D Metroid. Remake or original ? The tease at the end of Samus Returns is a good indicator to that question.

As usual I won't hold my breath, but it's a nice thought of these games coming to Switch. :)



Some days I just blow up.

They shouldn't remake Super Metroid, it's one of the best games of all time and the visuals, audio, controls and gameplay still holds up well.
They should remaster it however, that way they can't screw up a good formula.. I still go back and do a complete play through every few years.

In saying that, one way to get me to buy a Switch is with a good Metroid game, I wouldn't bother waiting for a Switch TV then.

I dont understand why Nintendo dont simply port Samus Returns to Switch.The game was clearly held back(commercially) by the 3DS.

I can easily see it selling an extra 500 K(minimum) on the Switch.

There are so many 3DS games that'd do way better on Switch than the 3DS!! >.<
