Metroid Prime Trilogy was listed at the Swedish computer specialist retailer Inet, with a release date for June 19, 2020.
Of course, this would be a very quick announcement-to-release schedule, with 25 days between them both if Nintendo were to announce the Trilogy's remaster today.
Of course, this isn't the first rodeo for hopeful Metroid Prime fans. Since December 2018 there's been updates and rumors that the Metroid Prime Trilogy is coming and it's definitely going to be awesome so hold onto your butts. Nothing happened. Then there was a rumor in February 2019, another in April 2019, and of course now, so that's four rumors in less than two years, and there have been a number of other rumors at points as well. You'd think by now we'd finally have something, but like Toronto Maple Leafs fans, Metroid fans are used to this kind of heartbreak.
With Metroid Prime 4 delayed and rebooted with Retro Studios at the helm as of January 2019, releasing the Metroid Prime Trilogy remaster would be an excellent way of building up hype for the long-hyped sequel. It's also been nearly a year and a half since it's been rebooted, so maybe enough progress has been made to finally release re-release the trilogy. Who knows.
I've always been interested in Metroid Prime, but I never had a GameCube so I missed the series' heyday. If it's released for the Nintendo Switch and it's a good remaster, then I'm definitely interested in seeing what all the fuss is about. Of course, playing the first two titles three generations and nearly 20 years after their original release won't be quite as good as it would've been back in the day, but that's the price you pay when you let things pass you by. If the trilogy is ever remastered, I won't be making the same mistake.
