After years of rumors and leaks, it’s finally happened – over 20 years after its release, beloved GameCube classic Metroid Prime has gotten a remaster on Nintendo Switch, as announced during the Nintendo Direct. And not only that, but it’s been shadowdropped! The game is out now digitally, meaning you can pick it up from the eShop if you’re so inclined. 



Revisit the gorgeous Tallon IV with updated graphics, venturing through hazardous ruins and wastes as you attempt to put a stop to Space Pirate operations on the planet. The Remastered game goes for $40, and will be available physically on February 22nd if you don’t want to purchase it digitally. No word on a Prime 2 or Prime 3 remaster, though at this point those seem entirely plausible, if not likely, to come later down the road.
