Metroid Prime Trilogy

During the Kiwi Talkz podcast, Metroid Prime senior game designer Mike Wikan touched on Metroid Prime Trilogy, including the insane amount of work that went into the scan logs.

Wikan started out by revealing that it was just a team of four “doing the entire trilogy recompile.” While the controls were adjusted, there were other changes as well – including modifications for the “notoriously difficult” Spider Ball and Boost Ball Guardian bosses. Co-producer Kensuke Tanabe actually led to these battles being tougher than Retro wanted them to be “in the last three days before we went gold.” For Metroid Prime Trilogy, Wikan was able to go back and adjust the difficulty.

It looks like Metroid: Samus Returns is not the only Metroid game that is getting a boost in sales from the recently announced Metroid Dread. The Wii U Virtual Console is also seeing its own Metroid boom, as Metroid: Zero Mission sits at number 1 on the best sellers list and Metroid Fusion ranks at number 2. Even Metroid Prime: Trilogy is coming in at number 4 on that list of best sellers.

This is no doubt due to the hype behind Metroid Dread being announced at E3 2021, and it shows a trend with the Metroid: Samus Returns rising in the sales charts on 3DS. We’ll see if the trend continues leading up to Metroid Dread’s October 8 release.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, Galen can’t play Minecraft Steve while Oni Dino appreciates mediocre JRPGs. Galen also shares his thoughts on the Baldur’s Gate 3 early access stuff going on. Good-Feel is teasing a new game for Switch with a Japanese aesthetic, and we discuss if Metroid Prime Trilogy HD is ever gonna happen. Speaking of, will another F-Zero ever happen? Oni Dino has some ideas for a himbo Captain Falcon in a No More Heroes-like game where fighting is replaced with racing.

Hello, you beautiful Shy Guys and Shy Girls! This week on NEP, please excuse Oni’s sick voice… BUT! The gang has several great discussions you’ll want to hear. This includes Best Buy leaking games allegedly via their website, which Galen provides some extra insight on, as he used to be a terrible employee back in the day. We then discuss Labo VR and muse over what future ways Labo could be used (Oni freaks over Metroid). We then get a little heavy as we find ourselves talking about the games industry and publishers capitalizing on the social phenomenon of FOMO.

Thank you for listening! Please help the show grow by sharing the podcast with someone you think might enjoy.

Persona 5 may not be the only game Best Buy has leaked for Switch. Also spotted in the retailer’s employee system, Metroid Prime Trilogy has been listed.

Here’s a look:

Game Informer senior editor Imran Khan has provided some additional details about the current state of Nintendo’s plans for Metroid.

Something that has been rumored in the past is Metroid Prime Trilogy for Switch, though it has yet to be announced. Khan says that it’s “been long done” and it was supposed to be announced last month. Why that didn’t happen is unclear.

Aside from Metroid Prime 4 and Metroid Prime Trilogy, there’s apparently “more Metroid stuff” in the works. Khan believes Metroid Prime 4’s delay “adjusts their schedule a bit,” which may or may not include Trilogy.
