With credits from Metroid Prime Remasteredwe get a fresh perspective from the team behind the launch.
While development was largely handled by Retro Studios, other companies were involved. Iron Galaxy Studios, which previously worked on the Switch versions of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Diablo III, and Overwatch, appeared to take a leading role during development. Airship Images Limited, Atomhawk Design, CGBot, Gamesim Inc, Liquid Development, Original Force LTD, Shanghai Mineloader Digital Technology and Zombot Studio are also credited.
Metroid Prime Remastered credits do not actually contain the original GameCube or Wii game credits. They do, however, contain a broad acknowledgment to the teams that worked on these games.
