Metroid Prime HD Announcement Reportedly Happening Soon
Nintendo may be close to making an official announcement regarding Metroid Prime HD soon, based on the latest rumor.
According to a Reddit user who has previously correctly leaked the name of the Breath of the Wild sequel i.e. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, a Metroid Prime HD announcement is happening soon. The user had been sharing information regarding such leaks via DMs with a Reddit mod.
The last message received from this user by the Reddit mod was, “Do you think everyone is primed and ready?”. This implies that an announcement regarding the often rumored Metroid Prime HD may be happening soon. As of writing, Nintendo has yet to make an official announcement regarding the game or a forthcoming Nintendo Direct.
Metroid Prime is an action-adventure video game developed by Retro Studios and published by Nintendo for the GameCube. The fifth main Metroid game, Metroid Prime, is the first in the series to feature first-person perspective and 3D computer graphics. Nintendo refers to the game as a “first-person adventure” rather than a first-person shooter because exploration comes first and combat comes second. In November 2002, it was made available in North America; the following year, it did the same in Europe and Japan. The Game Boy Advance title Metroid Fusion, which was released by Nintendo the day before its North American release, marked the Metroid series’ eight-year hiatus following Super Metroid (1994).
The Metroid Prime saga, which occurs between the original Metroid and Metroid II: Return of Samus, begins with Metroid Prime. Similar to earlier games in the series, Samus Aran, the series’ main character and bounty hunter, appears in Metroid Prime’s science fiction setting. Samus fights the Space Pirates and their biological experiments on the planet Tallon IV as the story follows her. The Austin, Texas-based Retro team worked together on the game with Nintendo staffers in Japan, including producers Kensuke Tanabe and Shigeru Miyamoto, the latter of whom came up with the idea while visiting Retro’s offices in 2000.
