While gamers are eagerly awaiting a fourth installment, a visually upgraded version of the original was indeed a welcome sight.
Metroid Prime 4 was originally announced all the way back at E3 2017 – but development was later restarted in 2019. There’s currently no word on when to expect it, but hopefully this remaster is a good sign that the series is still a going concern for the company.
