Rumor: Metroid Prime Trilogy for Switch has “been long done”

nintendo e3 2019

After the shock announcement of Metroid Prime 4‘s delay, we must now look to the immediate future. Do you remember that rumor of a Metroid Prime Trilogy announcement for the Nintendo Switch back in December? Well, if statements from the Senior Editor at Game Informer, Imran Kahn, are to be believed, the game has “been long done.”

In a series of exchanges over the sudden announcement regarding Metroid Prime 4, Kahn suggested that the trilogy has been completed for Nintendo Switch and was supposed to be announced in December. This lines up with the original rumor that it could have been announced at The Game Awards. Kahn also seems to think that the shake-up with Metroid Prime 4 has been boiling over for some time and that this is possibly why the trilogy announcement didn’t happen in December. It could also be the reason we haven’t yet seen a Nintendo Direct for January as Nintendo is working to get their ducks in a row with a shifting schedule.

The possibilities…

It’s an interesting idea and one that we all hope proves to be true. If this is the case, there’s a chance we could hear about it soon. While Nintendo fans have been gracious and understanding in the wake of the Metroid Prime 4 announcement as a result of Nintendo’s transparency, it would certainly be something that could satiate Metroid fans in the near term. Of course, we haven’t heard anything from the horse’s mouth. So, take everything with a grain of salt.

What do you think of the Metroid Prime Trilogy still potentially on deck for a Nintendo Switch release? Would you be in line to purchase the trilogy on day one? Would this help ease the pain of the massive Metroid Prime 4 delay? Let us know your thoughts on all things Metroid Prime in the comments below!
