Super Metroid Remake Coming Soon to Nintendo Switch?

One of the hottest rumors right now as it pertains to the gaming world involves the possibility of receiving a Remastered Switch port of Nintendo’s Super Metroid from 1993. For those who do not know Super Metroid was one of the most high profile Super Nintendo titles from the 90’s and is a game that has been critically acclaimed since its release back in ’93. The news regarding the possibility of receiving a Switch version of Super Metroid is one that has yet to be officially confirmed by Nintendo. In fact, there has also been rumors regarding the Metroid Prime Trilogy from 2009 being ported for the Nintendo Switch sometime within the next year or two as well. The idea of having four older Metroid titles on the Switch console is one that sound fantastic especially since we all know the Metroid Prime 4 is not coming out anytime soon. A Twitter user by the name of LeakyPandy who has a track record of accurately predicting some of Nintendo’s past Direct Presentations made these claims regarding the possibility of older Metroid titles coming to the Nintendo Switch.

It has been suggested that the potential remake for Super Metroid will resemble that of Metroid: Samus Returns which appeared on the Switch console back in 2017. The reimagining of Super Metroid for the Switch console would be very interesting especially considering the fact that the game itself is about 26 years overdue for a remake in general. If these rumors are true hopefully Nintendo will most likely confirm this within the next couple of months or so because its something that long time fans of the series definitely would love to see.

Final Fantasy VII & VIII Twin Pack confirmed for the Switch console!!!!

One of the few things that has been making headlines within the gaming world as of late involves the upcoming Switch ports of the JRPG classics Final Fantasy VII & VIII from the late 90’s. As far as big attractions are concerned both Final Fantasy VII & VIII were among two of the best selling video games for the PS1 when they were released between ’97-’99. Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII had sold close to 10 million following its release in January 1997 and was the third best selling game for the legendary PS1. The inclusion of memorable characters such Cloud Strife, Tifa Lockhart, Sephiroth made Final Fantasy VII arguably the best entry within series with a cult following that that is still present to this day. Final Fantasy VIII was a game that was not quite as successful as its ’97 predecessor but still managed to reach at least 7 million sales while becoming the seventh best selling title for the PS1. Despite, being criticized for its complicated gameplay and quality issues with Disc 3 FFVIII was still a game that fans of the FF series are still quite fond of.

The graphics and visuals for Moon: Remix RPG Adventure was pretty cool especially since it utilized 16-bit sprites with 3D backgrounds similar to that of Square Enix’s Xenogears game from 1998. In fact, a couple developers who had previously worked with Square Enix in the 90’s prior to their respective departures from the company involved in the development of Moon: Remix RPG Advance.

Video Game developers such as Akira Ueda, Kenichi Nishi and Tarō Kudou had roles in the development of popular RPG’s created by Square Enix such as Super Mario RPG which was arguably one of the best games within its genre to have appeared on the Super NES during the mid 90’s. While Moon: Remix RPG Adventure was not nearly as big as other RPG’s that appeared on the PS1 such as Final Fantasy VII which was also released in ’97 it was a game that could have arguably shine a bit more outside of Japan if it came out between ’98-’99.

Trials Of Mana Coming to the PS4, Switch and PC in early 2020!!!!

As fas as blockbuster announcements are concerned in relation to Nintendo Switch the reveal trailer for the Trials Of Mana is something that everyone is talking about. The Trials Of Mana is a high definition remake of a JRPG classic known as Seiken Densetsu 3 which appeared exclusively in Japan for the SNES back in 1995. Since its release back in the mid 90’s Seiken Densetsu 3 was never released in America mainly due to how popular 3D gaming was starting to become during that era. Even though, the 2D version of Seiken Densetsu 3 was ported for the Nintendo Switch back in 2017 it was available exclusively in Japan before appearing America in the Collection Of Mana on June 11th this year. Seiken Densetsu 3 is a game that includes multiple characters with their own storylines & endings and is considered to be one of the most underrated Action-RPG’s for the SNES.

There are many people who question how successful Trials Of Mana will be in the future especially after the release Secret Of Mana HD in 2018. The Secret Of Mana HD was a game that was solid but at the same time did not live up to many people’s expectations because it felt somewhat different from the original 16-bit version of the game. Hopefully, Trials Of Mana will not have that same issue especially since Seiken Densetsu 3 was never officially released in American retail stores in the past. As it currently stands Trials Of Mana is expected to appear on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC in early 2020 and will be among the few RPG’s that Square Enix will have to offer better the second half of 2019 & 2020.

The Collection of Mana includes three retro RPG titles from the early 90’s which are all considered to be legendary among many gaming communities. The first game includes Final Fantasy Adventure/Mystic Quest which was released for Game Boy back in 1991. Final Fantasy Adventure/Mystic Quest was technically the first entry in the Mana series before the release of Secret Of Mana 2 which was released for the SNES back in 1993. Secret If Mana 2 was arguably the most popular installment in the Mana series because it was one of the first 2D Action-RPG titles to feature a multiplayer mode that allowed up to three players simultaneously.

Also, Seiken Densetsu 3 is another JRPG game that is included in the Collection Of Mana. For those who do not know Seiken Densetsu 3 was originally released back in September ’95 as a Japanese SNES exclusive with gameplay that was similar to its predecessor Secret Of Mana 2.

Seiken Densetsu 3 will not only be apart of the Collection Of Mana but it was also announced at E3 2019 that the game will receive a full HD remake entitled “Trials Of Mana”. The high definition release of Trails Of Mana will be available for the PS4, Switch and PC sometime in early 2020.
