Metroid Prime Remastered

The long-rumored Metroid Prime Remastered is out now digitally for Nintendo Switch, recently dropping during Nintendo Direct. Based on Retro Studios’ 2002 action-adventure title, it features significantly revamped visuals. GameXplain provided a video comparison between the remaster and the original on Nintendo GameCube, and the results are staggering.

From the outset, environments use higher-resolution textures with more detail. The models, including Samus Aran, have also been heavily improved – the glow on the Arm Cannon is but one of many incredible details. The lighting and effects, like fire, have also been overhauled, and it all runs in a silky smooth 60 FPS, like the original.

Metroid Prime Remastered launches physically on February 22nd, so stay tuned for details when that’s available. Interestingly, Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb, who reported several times on the remaster, also alleged that Metroid Prime 2 and 3 would be re-released for Nintendo Switch. These aren’t major overhauls but reportedly have updated controls.
