Metroid Nintendo Switch Appears on Walmart

Metroid has been listed on Walmart Canada.

May 30, 2021

Update: It seems like the listing is a bit old, but has been spotted now and the release date has been updated. Several other leaks have hinted towards a Metroid reveal, and it remains to be seen whether we actually see it at E3 2021.

The Metroid franchise consists of one of the most popular games in the history of video games. The first Metroid game was released back in 1986, and over time it has managed to build quite a large fan base.

The latest installment in the franchise, Metroid Prime 4, was announced at E3 2017, and fans are eagerly waiting to learn more about the games since then. In January 2019, another update was released, but it was not quite positive news for fans. It was announced that the game is being delayed. However, the silver lining was that the game was returning to the original studio.


As E3 2021 draws closer, the hype around Metroid Prime 4 is picking up pace once again. Today, Walmart Canada has listed the Metroid game on its store, which is quite a significant development.

The listing doesn’t reveal much, and most of the content is pretty much a placeholder. The listing has quite a vague cover image and a release date of 31st December 2021. The listing is priced at $79.96. This is quite understandable given that there is no official information from Nintendo yet.

While listings like these keep happening, a lot of them usually precede an announcement. The timing of this listing also makes it quite crucial, as E3 is just around the corner. Leaks have suggested that Nintendo might probably even re-release some of the older Metroid games. Whether it’s an old Metroid game or Metroid Prime 4, fans do have an exciting E3 to look forward to.
