Metroid Prime Remastered Announced – Available for Purchase Digitally Now

    A classic returns to Nintendo Switch.

    During today’s Nintendo Direct, a remaster of Metroid Prime was unveiled. Fortunately, players will not need to wait long to get their hands on this. Metroid Prime Remastered is getting shadow-dropped on the eShop today! This remaster includes HD visuals, better sound, and improved controls.

    Players will be able to control Samus with a modern, twin-stick configuration. This means that players will now be able to simultaneously move and operate the camera. Metroid Prime Remastered also marks the first time the game can officially be played on a handheld. If you have not yet experienced the first Metroid Prime title, it seems like now is a great time to do so. 

    If you are looking to pick up the game physically, you will have to wait until February 22. Fortunately, that still isn’t very far away. For those of you who are still waiting for a Metroid Prime 4 announcement, this may hold you over for a time being. Perhaps this remaster indicates that we will get a big announcement in the near future. Who knows?

    Here is a description of the game via the Nintendo eShop:

    Intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran receives a distress signal from a wrecked frigate in orbit around planet Tallon IV.

There, Samus encounters her nemesis, Meta Ridley, whom she pursues to the surface of Tallon IV. It’s up to her alone to explore the planet’s interconnected regions, investigate its dark secrets, and end the intergalactic threat posed by Phazon.
