UPDATE – The listing has updated from Metroid Prime 2 to Metroid Prime 4 so, as expected, the listing was clearly a mistake, though why they mocked up a Prime 2 tentative box shot is beyond me. I’ve attached a screenshot of the previous listing after the break
Something very interesting has popped up while I was looking for pre-orders for Metroid: Samus Returns Special Edition. It seems like the UK retailer, ShopTo, has Metroid Prime 2 listed for preorder on the Nintendo Switch.
It is most likely some sort of error, perhaps mistaken for the reveal of Metroid Prime 4. However, considering the timing, I wouldn’t be too surprised if previous Prime games were brought over to the Switch. Not only would it serve as Metroid filler between now and the release of Prime 4, but seeing how the Trilogy compilation was released eight years ago, it would make sense to bring them to the Switch for those who never played it on the Wii, or the Wii U Virtual Console.
Most likely a mistake, though it still could be a possibility. I will update this post if any more information surfaces
I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
