Shortly after today’s announcement of the Nintendo Direct Mini (tomorrow at 3pm) Journalist Jeff Grubb called on his Twitter followers to join one of his livestreams for Giant Bomb moments later.
And he dropped a little bombshell: “I can say I was almost certainly told that Metroid Prime Remastered will be one of the big Christmas games,” Grubb said in the livestream.
The remaster is actually not a new story. Last year, media reports said the entire Metroid Prime trilogy was just waiting to be released for Nintendo Switch.
Now the release seems to be splitting up, with Grubb suggesting the debut will get the most intense HD treatment. Metroid Prime 2 and Metroid Prime 3 will then appear separately.
“I’ve heard in the past that this game is in the works and there are other plans for this game as well. I’ve now been told that they plan to release the game later this year, almost certainly in time for the 20th anniversary in November.”
“That’s going to happen, and they need to tell us when the release date is.” Maybe they’ll tell us tomorrow, Jeff Grubb naturally suspects. Tomorrow on Nintendo Direct Mini – but the show is expressly reserved for third-party manufacturers.
Still, it would not be a premiere that games from publisher Nintendo could also be seen directly in a third party. In October 2020, Nintendo also showed Bravely Default 2 (distributed in the West by Nintendo) and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity at a Mini Partner Direct.
