Last night, during the latest Nintendo Direct, it was confirmed that Metroid Prime Remastered exists and is available digitally from from February 8, and from next March 3 in a packaged version.
After the success of Metroid Dread, which you can also find on Amazon at a discounted price, fans have never stopped wanting the return of the historical saga.
The classic, released many years ago on the GameCube, has been completely remastered to put you once again in the shoes of Samus in first person, on a planet full of pitfalls.
Now, as also reported by Eurogamer, the developer of the Original Metroid Prime is not satisfied with the port design of the remastered version.
The doors of the Metroid series have always been iconic, able to be opened thanks to the various weapons equipped by Samus, and Metroid Prime is no exception. It was the first time that we admired them from a first-person view, so it was important that the design was correct.
Apparently, however, in this remastered version their design has been changed and Zoid Kirsch, one of the developers of the original game, isn’t happy about it at all.
“They messed up the doors in the Metroid Prime remaster! They have the wrong alpha level on the shields,”, said Kirsch on Twitter.
Following up–the re-master is amazingly well done. The improvements to Samus and the boss models are awesome. I just noticed this particular change that stood out from the original. It’s still a wonderful re-master and should be played and enjoyed. #MetroidPrimeRemastered https://t.co/frq91g3kpJ

“I tend to be a little picky about this, since I literally spent months working on the doors. All this should be corrected.»
Niculousness aside, when you put so much effort into something, it’s frustrating to see changes being made: “It’s also true that remastering is incredibly well done», added Zoid. “The improvements to Samus and the boss models are fantastic. I only noticed this particular change that stands out from the original. It’s still a wonderful remastering and should be played and enjoyed.”

But not only: net of the disappearance of Metroid Prime 4, a title of which there are no traces, a reliable source declares the possible return of Samus in a 2D episode.
