Metroid Prime Remastered, Game Boy and GBA Games, WBSC eBASEBALL, and Prison Tycoon hit the Switch

How’s about that Nintendo Direct, eh? In addition to shadow-dropping Metroid Prime Remastered for £34.99 – with a physical release coming in a matter of weeks – and Konami’s WBSC eBASEBALL: POWER PROS, Game Boy/Game Boy Color and GBA games are also coming to NSO later today.

You’ll need the additional NSO Expansion Pack to play GBA games, mind.

The launch Game Boy titles are:

  • Tetris
  • Super Mario Land 2 – 6 Golden Coins
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX
  • Game & Watch Gallery 3

  • Kuru Kuru Kururin
  • Mario Kart: Super Circuit
  • Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Seeing Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare on the list is a surprise. That must fall into the THQ Nordic camp these days. Kirby & The Amazing Mirror, Metroid Fusion, Fire Emblem, F-Zero Maximum Velocity, and Golden Sun are listed for release soon on the GBA service. Both North American and European versions of each game will be available,

We also got to see more of Pikmin 4, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, DECAPOLICE, and Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe.

Etrian Odyssey Origins Collection, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, Baten Kaitos I & II HD Remaster, We Love Katamari REROLL+ Royal Reverie, PROFESSOR LAYTON and The New World of Steam, and SEGA’s Samba de Amigo: Party Central were also revealed.

Rewinding back to the here and now, other releases for this week include Prison Tycoon: Under New Management, Daily Dadish – with 365 levels to tackle, doled out one per day – the full-price, and rather complex looking, aviation sim I am an Air Traffic Controller, and the ‘90s style platformer Go!
