The remaster of a legendary game like Metroid Prime (Game Cube, 2002) could be one of Nintendo’s big games for the upcoming holiday season.
At least that’s what Jeff Grubb stated recently, giving strength to other industry sources such as the well-known Emily Rogers. Rogers said some time ago that Metroid Prime 1 Remaster began development between 2017 and 2018, with the idea being that development would form the basis of future Metroid Prime 2 and Metroid Prime 3 remasters.
As of today, only rumors about the remaster of the first Metroid Prime seem to be rumbling. We don’t know what Nintendo’s intentions are for its sequels. In fact, Retro Studios may have stopped development on the remasters of the sequels to focus on Metroid Prime 4.
Work on Metroid Prime 1 remaster started around 2017-18.
Original plan was to develop & release Prime 1 first. Then use Prime 1’s foundation (engine, tools, assets) to re-create Prime 2 + 3 later.
Nobody knows if plans were changed/axed after Covid. https://t.co/BsrPEhXrjd
