Metroid Prime Remastered Sometime in 2021, rumors started to circulate that there might be an official port of Metroid Prime on the Nintendo Switch. However, when game designer Mike Wikan denied the rumors, stating it to be a "Herculean effort" to port it to the console due to technical issues, it led to fan outrage on the Internet. In a Nintendo Direct presentation on February 8, 2023, Nintendo announced Metroid Prime Remastered, a high-definition remaster for the Nintendo Switch. It was released digitally later that day, with a physical release on February 22 in North America and March 3 in Europe and Japan. The remaster was developed by Retro Studios with assistance from developers including Iron Galaxy Studios. The remaster features new visuals, updated control schemes (including an option for dual-stick controls) and new unlockable art. Metroid Prime Remastered received "universal acclaim", according to Metacritic. Samuel Claiborn of IGN described it as "a perfect example of how to both honor a lauded classic and bring it up to code". It was criticized for not crediting the developers of previous versions of Metroid Prime by name, instead crediting the "original Nintendo GameCube and Wii version development staff".
