Metroid Prime 1’s Alleged Remaster Wrapped up Development Over the Summer – Rumour

Well, here we go again- rumours continue to claim that a Metroid Prime remaster is on its way, and has already wrapped up development.

Metroid Prime 1

Thanks to the launch and success of Metroid Dread, fans of Nintendo’s criminally overlooked series have had a lot more to be happy about these last few weeks than they had in more than a decade before that, but rumours are insisting that that is just the beginning. That a Metroid Prime trilogy remaster is coming to the Switch is something that leaks and rumours have been claiming for years, to the point where it’s hard not to groan when another similar rumour pops up, but lately, that’s been picking up Steam again.

Not too long ago, noted Nintendo insider Emily Rogers claimed that instead of a full trilogy remaster, Nintendo was working on an individual remaster for the first Metroid Prime with the intention of launching it some time in 2022. Recently, she took to Twitter to double down on that, claiming that the remaster in question has made great development progress- and, in fact, even wrapped up development over the summer. There’s no word yet on whether Nintendo has plans to make similar remasters for the other two Prime games, but Rogers seems convinced that Metroid Prime 1, at least, is happening.

Last month, another known insider, NateDrake, corroborated Rogers’ claims, stating that a Metroid Prime 1 remaster is indeed in development, and though it isn’t exact a remake, it’s still quite an ambitious project. Read more on that through here.

If the remaster (assuming that it exists) has indeed wrapped up development, and if it is indeed targeting a 2022 launch which is also (Metroid Prime 1’s 20th anniversary), it should be interesting to see when Nintendo announces it. The Game Awards next month would be an ideal venue, but Nintendo has always done what Nintendo wants, so there’s no predicting what they’ll do next. Even the existence of this remaster remains in doubt for now, since this is the notoriously secretive Nintendo we’re dealing with here, but we’ll keep an eye out for additional details, so stay tuned for more updates.
