Recently, it was discovered that a well-known Nintendo leaker sent a mysterious message to a moderator of the GamingLeaksAndRumors subreddit. Simply put, this message asked, “Do you think everyone is primed and ready?”
Before the announcements for Wario Ware, Skyward Sword, and Splatoon 3, all of which were ultimately revealed after the initial “leak,” this leaker, ‘Fun Way 6592’, had previously written out similar messages.
With this cryptic message, Fun Way 6592 is teasing the release of a new Metroid Prime game, which could either be Metroid Prime 4 or a remake of an earlier Metroid Prime game.
Could a Nintendo Direct Be On The Horizon?
Following a leak that uncovered Legend of Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom hardware, another Nintendo-centric leak has found its way online. On Reddit, Fun_Way_6592‘s leak could suggest one of three things:
- An all-new Metroid Prime (4) is on the way, due to be announced imminently.
- An old Metroid Prime title is going to be remastered (sorry, Jeff Grubb)
- The Metroid Prime Trilogy will launch for Switch (again, sorry, Jeff)
With new Nintendo Switch models surfacing and new first-party games leaking and being teased, a Nintendo Direct showcase could be on the horizon. It was in September 2022 that the last Nintendo Direct brought place so that the community could be due for another bout of announcements in early 2023.
In 2023, Nintendo is also expected to bring out DLC for Pokémon Scarlet/Violet, which would make for another tidy announcement at a Direct showcase. All of this was summarised quite nicely in a potential lineup from a user on Reddit:
Pokémon DLC + Tears of the Kingdom + Metroid Prime + Fire Emblem + 2D Mario (to coincide with the movie) + NSO update = a Pretty decent lineup.
Whatever this announcement is, Fun_Way_6592 tends to put out a mere leak days before an official reveal is made, so if the mysterious leaker is to keep up to the par for the course, a revelation will need to come very soon.
