Rumor: Metroid Prime Trilogy coming to Nintendo Switch

Will Nintendo unveil a Metroid Prime Trilogy at The Game Awards?

Rumors surrounding the Metroid Prime series continue to circulate, with a mysterious listing from a Swedish retailer hinting at the possibility of a Metroid Prime Trilogy coming to Nintendo Switch. Others have speculated that Metroid Prime 4 may even get a release date announcement following the Metroid Prime Trilogy reveal.

Based on information from Inet and outlets like Variety, the Metroid Prime Trilogy could be announced at the next Nintendo Direct event. It’ll have an estimated release date of February 2019 and will contain Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. In our opinion, the idea of a Metroid Prime Trilogy launching before Metroid Prime 4 isn’t exactly far-fetched.

At The Game Awards last year, Nintendo shared plans to port Bayonetta 1 and 2 to Nintendo Switch before announcing Bayonetta 3. Unfortunately, The Game Awards wrapped up and no Metroid news was shared. Although, it's still possible the reveal could happen at a Nintendo Direct in early 2019. 

Will a Metroid Prime Trilogy and Metroid Prime 4 reveal happen in 2019? We’re keeping our fingers crossed! Based on the leaks, what do you think of the rumors surrounding Metroid Prime? Do you think they have some truth to them, or will we have to wait until E3 2019 to hear more about Metroid Prime 4? Let us know down in the comments below!
