Nintendo launched the physical version of Metroid Prime Remastered on Feb. 22, about two weeks after it surprise-launched the digital version on Feb. 8. However, if you didn’t pre-order the cartridge-based game, you’re probably having a tough time finding it in stock right now. It sold out at multiple retailers during its pre-order phase (even Nintendo itself quickly sold through its initial stock).
But if you head over to Amazon, you might be able to find a physical copy of the game selling for $39.99, its retail price (via Wario64).
Should that sell out, it might be tempting to spring for a pricier copy on eBay, but you should hold off. You never know when the next restock might happen. Plus, Nintendo of America told Polygon in a statement “If the Metroid Prime Remastered game sells out at various retail locations in the U.S., we will work to provide more units as soon as possible.”
Where to buy Metroid Prime Remastered
If you’re after a physical copy of Metroid Prime Remastered that won’t cost you more than its retail price, I suggest regularly visiting the links below to see if stock has returned. We’ll try our best to keep this page up to date with the latest stocking information.
On the other hand, downloading a digital copy of the game is simple. Either head to the eShop directly through your Switch console, or if it’s more convenient, snag a digital code for the game through Humble Bundle for the same price.
Update (March 6): Per a tweet from Wario64, we’ve updated this post to mention that Amazon has stock of the physical version of the game.
