Read details on the remaster below:
The first Metroid Prime game has been remastered for Nintendo Switch with HD visuals and enhanced sound! Explore Tallon IV from the perspective of Samus Aran. But beware: There’s more to this alien planet than meets the eye. When hostile creatures attack, fight back with Beams, Missiles, Bombs and more.
In addition to remastered visuals, this version adds modern dual-stick controls, allowing you to move around while separately changing your point of view. It’s also the first time this classic game can be played on the go!

oh wow, I watched the show and did not realize it was available now... wow... I love this game so much; def. my favorite GameCube game. Will go get it right away.
It's a pretty nice remaster. I've been playing it for a few hours, finally died my first time oops ha. Make sure you save when you can with these older games!
I personally prefer the aliased look over the clean and slightly blurrier look, the new game looks very clear, it has TAA maybe? This has real anti-aliasing on Switch (it does kind of look like Unreal engine). Wish it was an option in the settings though to turn it on and off.
Man, the remastered version of Metroid Prime looks great! I hope 2 and 3 get remastered as well, leading into Metroid Prime 4!
Just played through the opening, looks really nice visually. Will never get tired of seeing the raindrops on the visor. Also a surprising amount of options for changing and fine tuning the controls.
40 is a bit steep for this.
No lol it is a remaster… there is nothing to disagree lol. This clearly not build from the ground up but the old game simply remastered… you are even making the distinction yourself…
