Man, the rumor mill has been churning on unannounced Switch titles! Are they legit? Are they bogus? Time will only tell. This newest one is in regards to Metroid Prime Trilogy coming to the Switch.
Metroid Prime Trilogy first came out on the Wii (which I still have my steelbook version from launch day). It was released in limited quantities but the demand got so great that Gamestop took it upon themselves to help get a reprint available in standard casing. The game was later available as a digital download on the Wii U at the incredibly low price of $20, which is a steal if you ask me.
It now seems that a site called Inet has posted a listing for the game on the Switch. Typically we could just put this in the rumor category (which I have) but there is word on the interwebs that it will be announced this week at the Game Awards. No additional information has been revealed but what is really has me curious is if this will be a standard version or have they updated it to an “HD” version? I skipped out on the digital release on the Wii U but if this is indeed coming to the Switch, Nintendo has my money. It would only make sense for Nintendo to bring the trilogy over to the Switch before Metroid Prime 4 is released.
