The widely hyped Metroid Prime Remaster surprisingly has a place in the 2022 schedule

It’s no secret that Metroid Prime was one of the best-selling games of its time. Reto Studios’ game topped the PC charts as it opened up a new world of fiction for all gamers. Metroid Prime was the fifth title in the Metroid franchise to use 3D computer graphics and a first-person perspective.

Nintendo is planning a classic remake!

Midway through the 2022 releases, Nintendo plans to reveal some of the most anticipated titles. As a result, Metroid Prime is believed to be one of them, as it was one of the best games released. To support this, we’d like to share some official statements from Jeff Grubb on the Game Mess Podcast. Here is what he said. “I can say I was told pretty definitively that Metroid Prime Remastered would be one of their great holiday games.”

In the past I had heard that something was going on, they have things going on with this game; now I’ve been told their plans are to release this game this holiday, I think almost certainly to line up with the 20th anniversary in November.

Other than that, Jeff also mentioned the possibility of dual-stick and gyroscopic controls.

Metroid Prime may become Nintendo’s next big release because it has classic significance. Therefore, it is believed that the Japanese giant will release it in the second half of the year, only for the Nintendo Switch. They will be celebrating Switch’s fifth anniversary, so it would be surprising if they didn’t release the title on that platform.
