We’ve got an update on the rumor a long time ago Metroid Prime Trilogy The remaster is said to be headed for the Nintendo Switch.
According to industry-proven Jeff Grubb and VentureBeat journalist, development of the Switch version is complete and now it’s just a matter of Nintendo finding the “right time” to release it.
In this week’s episode of Giant bomb show (pay wall), the latest update says the video game giant is waiting for the best time to reveal and release the trilogy – with the pandemic still causing some problems along with the delay of the Metroid Prime 4.
This is exactly what Jeff had to say (thanks, VGC):
“The game is done and Nintendo is holding it…whether Nintendo releases it now or later depends on other factors… I think that game is in their pocket whenever it comes to play. anyway Nintendo decided it was the right time, and Nintendo has done this happening a lot lately so it’s no wonder, not a sign of something bad going on, not a sign sign of a lack of faith in Metroid… Nintendo can afford it [to sit on it] And that’s how they treat it. “
“I think a big problem for Nintendo during a pandemic is QA… I think Nintendo is focusing its quality assurance resources on one or two big projects at once and that means what are some games that are basically done side by side, while they have locked down their secure QA processes focusing on one or two more important games… Japan is still working on these issues so I don’t think those processes will open up anytime soon. “
“The other element to the Metroid Prime Trilogy is that it’s definitely going to be a marketing hit for Metroid Prime 4, almost certainly. So right now we’re getting the Metroid Dread this year and then I’ll be going. imagine that the Metroid Prime trilogy is something of theirs” Will release close to the release of Metroid Prime 4, whenever there is. “
Back in 2019, Game Informer senior editor at the time, Imran Khan, said the Switch trilogy was “it’s along time” and also hints on how to have “more Metroid things” to predict. Next is a The Swedish retailer listed the film trilogy last May.
More recently, former lead designer on all three Metroid Prime games shared their own thoughts on the upcoming trilogy on Nintendo Switch and feel like it’s not likely to happen. This feedback is not good for some people in the Metroid . community.
