Updated Metroid Prime Trilogy Nintendo Switch Listing Suggests an Unexpected Release Next Month
An updated Metroid Prime Trilogy Nintendo Switch listing suggests that Nintendo is gearing up to release the trilogy as early as next month.
Back in December of 2018, we reported on a listing for Retro Studios’ trilogy from Swedish retailer Inet, which hinted at an official announcement during the 2018 edition of The Game Awards. Other retailers, including Best Buy also briefly listed it before removing it from its internal systems.
Unfortunately, that announcement never came. Recent rumors suggest that, while it hasn’t been officially announced, Nintendo has long finished porting the trilogy to the Switch but is waiting for the right time to announce it.
Interestingly enough, the above-mentioned Swedish retailer has now updated the trilogy’s listing with a rather unexpected release date. According to the retailer, Metroid Prime Trilogy for the Switch might be releasing on June 19th , which means that Nintendo could be planning a release in less than a month from now.
A release for such a high-profile Nintendo title seems unlikely, even more so considering that The Last of Us Part II is releasing on the same day. Then again, Nintendo announced a new Paper Mario for the Switch out of nowhere earlier this month as well, which also seemingly included a Metroid tease at the end of the trailer.
As with a retailer listings, however, take the information above with a fair grain of salt for now.
Originally released as a compilation on the Nintendo Wii back in 2009, the Metroid Prime Trilogy includes Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. The trilogy was re-released for the Wii U in 2015.
