Metroid Prime was first released on the GameCube in 2002 as part of a franchise that cemented the main character Samus Aran as a Nintendo mascot. In the many years since that release, the franchise has continued to develop games for a wide range of Nintendo consoles. Today, the first game in the series to get 3D graphics has received a remake.
Metroid Prime Remastered was unveiled in an extensive teaser during the Nintendo Direct on February 8, showing updated visuals as well as systems that have been improved to make the game simpler for players. What was the most surprising was that the digital version of the game was released today, with physical versions expected to be released in the next few weeks.
People who see the Direct applaud the remake of one of the classic Metroid games, appearing to be a faithful remake. Numerous tweets express gratitude for the music recreation and demand that Nintendo remake the next two Metroid Prime titles as well.
The presenter talked about the new Nintendo Switch controls for the remaster. Samus will have new visors in this updated version of the game that will help demonstrate the objective and provide further information about various creatures in the game. This is expected to make exploring the world of Tallon IV more enjoyable.
Players can now buy the game on the Nintendo eShop for roughly $40. This is a discount compared to most major Nintendo releases, allowing more players to enjoy this gaming classic.
