Insider: New Metroid Coming To Nintendo Switch In 2023 – Works At 60 FPS

Company Nintendo plans to announce and release this year on console Switch new game in the series Metroid… A well-known insider reported this with reference to his sources. Zippo… This is a project in the main 2D series, for which a Japanese producer is in charge Yoshio Sakamoto – he is the father Metroid

According to Zippo, the novelty for the Switch is being developed by a Spanish studio MercurySteam under the supervision of Sakamoto. Several years ago, the team successfully resurrected the series by releasing Metroid: Samus Returns, remake Metroid II: Return of Samus, on the Nintendo 3DS (our review).

“The new 2D game from MercurySteam exists. 200%. And it is actually ready. It remains only to make an announcement,” – wrote an insider.

According to Zippo, Nintendo is very happy with the game in general and its technical condition in particular. Samus’s new adventure runs at 60 FPS, an insider heard.

“Have patience, Hunters! Almost waited,” he summed up.

The game line from Nintendo itself for the whole of 2023 was described by an insider as “the sequel to the 2019 line.” According to him, in addition to new Metroid and already announced releases (Miitopia, Famicom Detective Club, Game Builder Garage, DC Superhero Girls, Mario Golf: Super Rush, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl), we will get at least more new part of Donkey Kong from creators Super mario odyssey, new Fire Emblem (possibly a remake of Genealogy of the Holy War, which was never originally released in the West), and Super mario party 2… At the same time, Zippo is not completely sure about Nintendo’s plans to celebrate the 35th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda (at least collections of old games are expected) and doubts in the exit The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 in calendar year 2023.

Finally, an insider heard that the creators Mario kart 8 and ARMS have been working on a “new project” for Mario Kart for three years now, but he doesn’t know exactly what this is about.

“Expanding Mario Kart 8? Mario Kart 9? Nintendo Kart? Not sure. But it all sounds like this is coming out by Christmas or early next year.”

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the most played game for the Nintendo Switch. As of March 31, 2023, its sales are approaching 36 million copies.

In the past, a Zippo insider has shared both truthful insights and information that has not been confirmed, so his words should be treated simply as a rumor.

It should be noted that the Nintendo Life website also reported about the new Donkey Kong part from the creators of Super Mario Odyssey after it, referring to its own informants, but also mentioning Zippo
