Nintendo Switch was an immense success right after its release because of how it was both a home and a portable console. Furthermore, the Switch console had already overshadowed the Wii U in terms of units sold. Wii U was Nintendo’s first high definition home console and had some very popular titles to offer in its prime. Among those, one is the Metroid series, and several users are excited about the Metroid Prime 4 release in 2022.

Nintendo might be working on a remastered version of Metroid Prime

There are tons of rumors that Nintendo might release Metroid Prime Trilogy before the fourth title launch. Unlike Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, and even the Splatoon series, Metroid Prime 4 needs a lot of buildup in the community.

Therefore, it might be best to release all three past Metroid Prime games to create hype in the community. However, according to some rumors, it looks like Nintendo might be planning to take a different approach to advertise Metroid Prime 4.

YouTuber Spawn Wave interviewed NateHate to confirm some inside news on remaster version of Metroid Prime 1. There are rumors that Retro Studios has been working on the remastered version of the Metroid series for years. Furthermore, there’s a possibility that we might see a remasters version of Metroid Prime 1 before the 4 title launch in 2022.

A remastered version of the first title of the series will also give players an idea of what to expect from the Metroid Prime 4. NateHate said,” I wouldn’t really use the term remake when referring to the title. I believe the title to be closer to a remaster; though may some elements may closer resemble to a remake.”

He further added, “It’s a very ambitious project. This is something Retro has been working on now for several years. It’s the origin of the Metroid Prime Trilogy remake rumors, but Retro has been working on this since at least 2018. So this is a very long-term project for Retro Studios.”

According to Nate, we might hear of the remastered Metroid Prime release during the Game Awards this December or in E3 2022. Moreover, Metroid Prime will have its 20th anniversary in August next year. Therefore, Nintendo might end up planning to release any big information on the game’s anniversary.
