Metroid Prime Remastered is Now Available

Back once again for the renegade master. MP4 damage with the ill behaviour.

Nearly 20 years after the United Kingdom release, Metroid Prime Remastered, the original GameCube and Wii video game developed by Retro Studios and published by Nintendo, is now available in physical form.

An example of a game that transitions well into a different genre. Metroid Prime for GameCube was fantastic at the time.

I was one of those black sheep who chose to get a GameCube instead of a PlayStation 2. The GameCube nowadays receives the praise it deserves. Back then, people thought it was weird (I did end up getting a PlayStation 2 a little later). I didn’t own Metroid Prime at the time. I rented the game from a local video store when they still existed. What a time that was?

I never played the other Metroid Primes games as I was deep into PlayStation 2 and Nintendo DS games by then. The Metroid Prime: Trilogy was released on the Wii later too. The Trilogy featured a few new enhancements to the game.

Metroid Prime Remastered came out initially on the 9th of February and is mostly the same critically acclaimed game as 2003 except with better and crisper visuals, a choice of control options (lock on can be off, for example), and unlockable artwork, and of course portability.

If you have or haven’t played the game before, I highly recommend you play. If you don’t like the Metroid world or first-person games (even if these are more forgiving), you should avoid them. In some ways, Metroid Prime is similar to Star Wars: Republic Commando, both are unconventional first-person shooters.

I believe the physical version is the same price as the digital version. This is good. A lot of the time, the digital version is more expensive, which makes no sense.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see the other two Metroid Prime games released eventually, with Metroid Prime 4.
