Metroid Prime: Trilogy Switch Release Date Leaked by Retailer

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.

Inet has most recently added a new retailer listing online for Switch version of Metroid Prime: Trilogy with a release date of June 19, 2020 but as soon as people begin to notice it and words starts spreading, they were quick to take it down.

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.

Kick-starting right after MK11 final boss battle, Aftermath DLC debuts of two returning series character; Shokan warrior Sheeva, God of Wind Fujin and cybernetic cop from a distant future, officer Alex Murphy AKA Robocop from 80's movie.

Often assisted by peacekeeping machine ED-209, majority of RoboCop's moves are mostly shooting-based including Fatality and Krushing Blows. Fujin specializes in aerial attacks and Sheeva excels in stomping over her opponents.

Just like any other guest fighters, RoboCop had a gray suit in first film and it was much bluer in RoboCop 2. MK11: Aftermath expansion will feature both of them to choose from and a Cyber Ninja RoboCop variant, which is NetherRealm version.
