An Internet publication showed an interesting detail found in the box of the physical release of Metroid Prime Remastered.
Metroid Prime Remastered is the franchise’s latest installment since 2021’s Metroid Dread, which became the franchise’s best-selling game.
The release of Metroid Prime Remastered came as a surprise, as it was released immediately after an announcement during a Nintendo Direct presentation. Although there were rumors in 2022 about the development of the game, nothing materialized until the game went on sale and was in the hands of gamers.
Its new visual look and updated control schemes have won the game a lot of praise. With the original’s iconic status in the gaming industry, it’s an impressive feat to improve on the classic.
Now, the Nintendodeal account has posted the cool detail on Twitter, revealing that the physical box art for Metroid Prime Remastered is reversible, revealing the Japanese cover on the other side.
The Japanese version is much more stripped down, showing the game’s logo against space black, although many players may prefer this art to the new one.
Either way, it’s great to give players the option without having to import a copy from Japan. Nintendo has no shortage of games with amazing covers, and Metroid Prime Remastered seems to have joined that club with this reversible cover.
