¡¡¡¡It looks as though a new Metroid game is on the way, and new leaks reveal it¡¯s releasing in 2021.
¡¡¡¡It¡¯s a big time for gaming, as E3 2021 is just around the corner. And before the biggest gaming event of the year is here, we¡¯ve got leaks taking center stage.
¡¡¡¡We¡¯ve already heard about Nintendo¡¯s leaked E3 plans, including Splatoon 3, Zelda, Smash Bros., and more. And now, it looks like Metroid will be joining that lineup.
¡¡¡¡After a new leak at Walmart reveals a new Metroid title is on the way, this leaker is confirming it for a 2021 release date.
¡¡¡¡In case you missed it, there were some credible leaks about the new 4K Nintendo Switch very recently. And leakers are already confirming that Pokemon Legends: Arceus will get a huge upgrade on the Nintendo Switch Pro.
¡¡¡¡It¡¯s been 4 years since out last Metroid title, and even that was a remake of Metroid 2. Now, a brand-new Metroid game could be coming in 2021.
¡¡¡¡Metroid is one of Nintendo¡¯s most iconic brands, but it¡¯s one that gets very little attention. That could all be about to change though, judging by a new leak on the Walmart Canada website.
¡¡¡¡On the Canadian site, Walmart is currently listing a new Metroid game for Nintendo Switch. As of right now, very little about the placeholder listing is being revealed ¨C but retailers often get insider information about upcoming releases.
¡¡¡¡After all, we just saw the Nintendo Switch Pro leak on Amazon!
¡¡¡¡Sometimes a leak like this means very little, but it looks like this one could be legit. Trusted leaker Samus Hunter was quick to comment on the new development.
¡¡¡¡¡°The new Metroid is one of the projects planned for 2021, with the game expected to be released after the anniversary around Sept/Oct,¡± the leaker writes. ¡°As I¡¯ve said, while I don¡¯t yet know the lineup of titles unveiled at E3, I¡¯m convinced we¡¯ll see it.¡±

¡¡¡¡According to the insider, the new Metroid game could release in September/October this year. Around this time, Nintendo will allegedly be celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Metroid franchise.
¡¡¡¡It stands to reason that this will be a major Metroid release and that we¡¯ll hear more about it at E3 2021. However, whether or not it¡¯s the long-awaited Metroid Prime 4 is anybody¡¯s guess.
¡¡¡¡UPDATE: WalmartCAGaming¡¯s Riley Little is confirming that the Metroid listing has been online since the Metroid Prime 4 announcement. But while the listing may not be new, the following information certainly is!
¡¡¡¡Samus Hunter is also confirming that a Metroid Prime Trilogy HD remake is in the works, but they don¡¯t believe that¡¯s what this listing is either.
¡¡¡¡Rumors indicate that we¡¯re about to get a new Pokemon Presents event ahead of E3. And with a huge Nintendo E3 show on the way this year, there¡¯s definitely plenty of space to introduce a new Metroid title!
¡¡¡¡@WalmartCAGaming strikes again? The new Metroid is one of the projects planned for 2021, with the game expected to be released after the anniversary around Sept/Oct. As I’ve said, while I don’t yet know the lineup of titles unveiled at E3, I’m convinced we’ll see it#Metroid pic.twitter.com/a9wPtMoPSt

¡¡¡¡There are also BIG reveals coming for both Pokemon and Zelda in our near future. Unfortunately, there¡¯s also a big Nintendo Switch shortage coming later this year.
¡¡¡¡The Nintendo Switch is already reporting insane sales figures in 2021 ¨C just wait until a Metroid announcement has fans acting crazier than usual!
