A Swedish retailer has a listing for Metroid Prime Trilogy on the Switch.

Should point out that the retailers put on the listing that it was a rumor they heard and are only losting it because of that.

So I'll make a resolution That I'll never make another one Just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun Until it's done

I expected it anyway. Metroid Prime Trilogy releasing for the Switch ahead of 4 makes way too much sense.

We're getting the other collection of Pinball HD, Other M Remastered, and Federation Force Deluxe with Blast Ball included.

And so I will buy Prime Trilogy for the third time, and enjoy it.

And I will legitimately own the Prime Trilogy for the first time and still enjoy it.

Wonder if the games will be remastered, or if they will stay the same.

remasters would be nice, but the games themselves still hold up really well

Corruption is a product of its age, but damn standing at the top of Skytown never gets old.

wait, what do you mean with "product of its age"?

the way it feels more like an FPS from the time at the beginning, perhaps? Or something else?

I was going to say "But we just got Metroid Prime Trilogy a few years ago!" but it turns out it came out nearly a decade ago... Huh, time flies.

I tried to finish my copy of Metroid Prime 2 last year but I got, like, 3 bosses in and stopped. There's so much going in circles that I got confused, forgot what I was doing, and gave up.

If they remake Trilogy again, I hope they take some time to touch up the graphics and unify the three games better.

Like making the Credits system uniform across all three games and updating Metroid Prime 1's scans to be object-encompassing borders instead of just floaty orange squares, if possible.

Also remove Friend Vouchers (just turn them into Friend Credits or something), since those no longer work.

Unholy Collapse is a remix, not an apocalypse. Although if Dokuro made it, it might be good enough to cause one.

They never worked if you ask me... Gah.

I don't own a switch but when I do I'll get this, although releasing the same trilogy of re-release on three generations of consoles should probably be a red flag that the franchise is not being nurtured well enough.

Trilogy wasn't really released on the Wii U. Just a rom dump of the Wii game. Now if you're talking Twilight Princess, then we can have a discussion, especially once that gets its Switch port.

Red credits for scanning creatures, blue for scanning lore, green for scanning research, gold for defeating bosses, orange for making story progress, purple for item collection progress, and silver for doing challenging/silly things such as escaping the Meta Ridley tube unharmed, escorting all Demolition Troopers, or shooting the Leviathan's eyes a lot.

No more Friend Vouchers.

The last time they did a collection they cut out the menus from the three individual games in favour of a single menu for the entire disc, and that's nothing short of a tragedy, because the menus of the three Prime games are some of the best menus in the history of video gaming. Like, if I could find an image of the background used for the first Prime, the insides of a metroid, I'd have that as my desktop in a heartbeat.

The Prime Trilogy menu, however, is also a damn fine one.

I fully expect some Metroid Prime 4 news at the VGA's tomorrow (or today if it's Thursday for you already). I was always expecting news at the VGA's, but teases from various gaming people I follow on Twitter and Reggie himself (wearing the series logo shirt while posing with Geoff Keighley back in September), make it all but expected.

So I'll make a resolution That I'll never make another one Just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun Until it's done

Metroid is almost certainly happening, but while I'm confident it's Trilogy + 4, it's not guaranteed.

4 cutscenes, gameplay, and launch window should be expected.

As for Trilogy, they might go the Bayonetta 1 and 2 route, and announce a launch in February. Mind, Bayonetta 1 and 2 were already HD and only needed to be ported.

We're getting the complete Metroid Prime collection. Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt, Metroid Prime Pinball, Metroid Prime Hunters, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Metroid Prime: Trilogy, Metroid Prime: Federation Force, and Metroid Prime: Blast Ball all in one complete package. Anything less will indicate Nintendo cares not one iota about the series and should stop lying to us about Metroid Prime 4: Now In Development For Nintendo Switch.

Whelp, Joker stole Trilogy.

As long as Metroid Prime 4 is a mere title, I don't expect much revelation at all. However, Joker is an interesting preview for the Smash DLC.
