Leaked listing by Swedish retailer reveals Nintendo Switch version of Metroid Prime: Trilogy release date.

A few years back, Metroid Prime: Trilogy for Nintendo Switch console was leaked online by Swedish retailer Inet. Fans have been eagerly awaiting its release ever since, following every other rumors of its arrival every now and then.

Rumors for all three Metroid Prime games in high-definition are ongoing for quite some time and only available Metroid games on Switch are currently Metroid and Super Metroid, which requires a subscription to Nintendo Switch Online.

Although leaks and rumors as such should always be taken with a grain of salt and healthy dose of skepticism, hint of a new Metroid game in recently revealed announcement trailer of Paper Mario: The Origami King actually backs it up.

RELATED: The Outer Worlds Nintendo Switch New Release Date

A planned Nintendo Direct episode for June 2020 was canceled earlier due to COVID-19 and Nintendo can casually drop a brand-new trailer for Switch version of Metroid Prime: Trilogy anytime they want via social media channels.

If they can casually reveal latest Paper Mario game only months before its release, then why not do the same for Metroid Prime: Trilogy? Fans are likely to appreciate its Switch port since Metroid Prime 4 isn't coming out very soon.

RELATED: Metroid Prime 4 for Switch Restarts Development

Nintendo Switch is one of the hottest platforms of current generation for video game ports, especially if for classic Wii U titles and therefore, an HD remaster of Metroid Prime: Trilogy is a potential best-seller for its publisher company.

Nintendo can reignite hype for Metroid Prime 4 as they continue development by releasing Switch port of Metroid Prime: Trilogy. However, we may not see protagonist Samus Aran to return soon as the game is delayed in 2019.

Disco Elysium Coming to Nintendo Switch

BAFTA award-winning RPG masterpiece Disco Elysium is coming to Nintendo Switch handheld very soon.

A sleeper indie-hit of last year, role-playing game Disco Elysium from developer/publisher ZA/UM has been out on all major platforms including PC, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version on their way, except Nintendo Switch.

However, a Switch port is now confirmed to be in development according to a statement by the game's art director Aleksander Rostov, who unintentionally ended up slipping this information during an exclusive podcast session with BBC.

Right after winning over three accolades at BAFTA Games Awards this year for Best Debut Game, Best Music and Best Narrative, Rostov and narrative lead Helen Hindpere recently attended BBC "Game On" podcast for an interview.

At one point, he jokingly tells host Adam Rosser that he is being kept away from doing work on a Switch port. His statement was backed up by Helen Hindpere as well saying, "It's going to happen soon", hinting at an announcement as well.

Aleksander Rostov tells how he was busy with development of a Nintendo Switch version of Disco Elysium lately.

This interview is, at this very moment, interrupting me from writing up design documentation for the user interface and input systems for the Switch port.

You play as a detective, who is working on a murder case while suffering from amnesia due to drug abuse. There are no scopes for direct combat for most part and your dialogue choices will often become a key in overcoming situations.

Disco Elysium was awarded "Best Independent Game" at The Game Awards 2019 and won in three other categories as well. Hopefully a launch date for its Nintendo Switch version will align with PS4 and Xbox releases later in 2020.

Previously planned for a March 6 release, TOW was unfortunately pushed back when its port developer Virtuos Games had to suddenly close down their studio like all Chinese offices amidst an initial outbreak of Coronavirus in February.

Before news of delay came in, fans were unhappy over a physical release without cartridge that charges full price for an empty case and publisher Private Division decided to include a game card for retail copies taking notice of their feedback.

Another thing players need to keep in mind that TOW will be receiving a day one patch worth nearly 6 GB with added hi-res textures, gameplay optimization and other essential fixes to improve your overall experience on Switch.

For a standard price of $59.99 only, The Outer Worlds digital and physical versions for Nintendo Switch will be available on given date. Obsidian is also planning to release a Steam version of TOW for PC platform later at some point in 2020.
