Metroid Prime Remastered: Where to Pre-Order the Physical Edition

If you're curious whether Metroid Prime is getting a physical edition, here's what you need to know.

Nintendo dropped something of a bombshell on audiences during the February 2023 Direct with the surprise announcement and release of Metroid Prime Remastered on the Switch eShop. While it’s wonderful to see one of the most highly regarded GameCube games getting a new lease on life and a new coat of paint, people that aren’t so keen on digital releases might have been wondering about a Metroid Prime Remastered physical edition.

Will Metroid Prime Remastered Get a Physical Edition?

Not wishing to leave money on the table, Nintendo stated that physical editions of Prime Remastered would be released on February 22, 2023. In another significant move, both the digital and physical versions are priced at $39.99, putting them into almost impulse buy territory. You could make an argument about the lack of its sequels, but the Metroid Prime Remaster seems to be much more than a simple up-res job. This is practically on the level of a remake.

How to Pre-Order Metroid Prime Remastered

So where can you pre-order Metroid Prime Remastered? U.S. buyers will have plenty of options, and one may even get you the game a bit early.

  • Amazon US – $39.99 with a release date of February 13, 2023
  • GameStop – $39.99 with the regular release date
  • Best Buy – $39.99 with the regular release date
  • Play Asia – $39.99 with a shipping date of March 3, 2023
  • Nintendo Store – $39.99 with no option to reserve

While none of these options for the Metroid Prime Remastered physical edition have any discounts or special items packed in, those with rewards points at specific retailers may be able to get a discount on the physical version. If you’re okay with a digital release, you can even use some Gold Nintendo coins on the eShop to take a few bucks off the MSRP.
