A Metroid Prime remaster is rumored to be in the works according to an industry insider.
This claim comes from @EmilyRogersBlog on Twitter, who is a contributor to Nintendo World Report. Replying to a tweet that detailed what another Twitter user wants to see at today’s Nintendo Direct, the blogger replied: “Last I heard, Nintendo was busy working on Metroid Prime 1 to celebrate the game’s 20th anniversary in 2022.”
In the same tweet, Rogers also added “I’m not sure if we’re getting a ‘trilogy’ or just a re-release of the first game. I’m leaning toward the latter, but I hope we get the former.” It wouldn’t be too far of a stretch to believe that Nintendo is quietly working on more Metroid games, especially considering the game’s upcoming anniversary and the release of Metroid Dread next month. Of course, it’s just a rumor for now, but you can see the tweet below.
