Here’s a beautiful surprise from Nintendo Direct: a rework of the original Metroid Prime for the Switch has been released unexpectedly. The aptly titled Metroid Prime Remastered graphics have improved significantly, but the game’s dual-stick controls are much more straightforward.
Players used to the first-person shooter genre from the past twenty years of consoles will feel more at home with the first-person controls. However, a GameCube-like scheme and other control alternatives are available.
You can get the remaster digitally through the Nintendo eShop for the low price of $40. You’ll have to wait until February 22nd to get a paper copy.
