Uff, Nintendo let it rip at yesterday’s Direct, even if a little more mass than class was announced. But there were finally some appointments and a surprise shadow drop.
There was a lot going on at the Nintendo Direct, even if smaller titles were a priority. The surprise of the evening, however, was certainly the unannounced shadow drop of the digital version of Metroid Prime Remastered, which was released right after the Direct.
This is a visually revised version of the first Metroid Prime, which was released for the Gamecube at the time. In addition, the remaster has received dual-stick control. As mentioned, the digital version is available now, with the physical version set to follow in Europe on March 3rd.
