Metroid fans are eagerly waiting for December 6th.
An online product list has the internet that provides an opportunity for a potential Nintendo Switch port of Metroid Prime Trilogy, with an announcement that may come as soon as The Game Awards this week.
Rumors about a potential HD Trilogi port, as well as a Metroid-related announcement at this year's Game Awards, has been staggering for some time. The speculation is now heating again just days before the show, thanks to the Swedish dealer Initial listing of Metroid Prime Trilogy for Switch.
While the listing has resumed conversations about a Switch version, it is important to note that the dealer itself appears to be in the speculation. A Google translation of the product description reveals that the Switch version is just rumored, with Inet foresee, no confirmation, a promotional competition and an early release in 201
The listing appears to have been discovered first by the Twitter user @Nitomatta claiming to have verified its legitimacy (listing, not game) by putting their VPN to the reseller's home country in Sweden. While many answers point to the speculative character of the listing, others are already concerned with the potential announcement:
The rumors have also created more Reddit threads, with fans expressing their cautious optimism. "I really hope this is right," wrote the user psycho. "I really hope it comes with updated 2-pin controls with updated photos instead of just updated resolution. The Prime Games look still good, I'm not wrong, but if Nintendo had a team working to add more refined photos to the game with updated textures, resolutions and animations that would be amazing! "
Even those who are more cautious about the rumor apparently can not help but get the hope. "Take this with a grain of salt, but I can not hide how exciting I am," wrote another user.
As with previously released Wii and Wii U versions, Metroid Prime Trilogy for Switch would include Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. IGN's Metroid Prime Trilogy review, published along with the Wii version's release, called it "one of the biggest video games that money can buy." Individually, IGN has given a 9.5 or higher to all three bundled games.
Although this rumor turns out to be fake, fans still hope to see Metroid Prime represented at The Game Awards. After skipping the E3 2018, there is hope for an update on Metroid Prime 4 this week's show. Nintendo has been quite silent about the series's fourth core listing since it was revealed on the E3 2017, although Nintendo broke its silence last month to say Metroid Prime 4 is "good in development."
The prizes will be held later this week, December 6th. Be sure to check our regional guide startup guide, streaming options, and the full list of nominees. For more on the show, here are IGN's five predictions for The Game Awards announcements.
