What we might see: Metroid Prime Trilogy Remaster
Metroid Prime 4 has entered development hell (more on that later). There’s been an incredibly strong rumor at just about every event or Direct for the past year or so that Nintendo was bringing the acclaimed Metroid Prime Trilogy to the Nintendo Switch, but it’s never been announced.
Maybe Nintendo was waiting for the right time, and it doesn’t seem like there would be a more right time to announce Metroid Prime Trilogy for the Nintendo Switch than E3 2019. Metroid fans are probably in a bit of a dark place right now and could use something like this to lift their spirits, and it would be a nice way to get that Metroid Prime fix til the new entry resurfaces.
The exciting thing about bringing the Metroid Prime Trilogy to Nintendo Switch is specifically Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is a Nintendo Wii game that you needed the Wii Remote and Nunchuck to play. Presumably, Nintendo would re-work the game so you could play it with more standard controls. If they did that, it would also imply that they could do this for other Nintendo Wii games that heavily relied on motion controls and could not easily be ported for that reason. It gives us hope that maybe someday we might get Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on Nintendo Switch reworked with regular controls, for example. Hopefully, we’ll see this long-rumored trilogy announced during Nintendo’s E3 2019 video presentation.
