How to Get the Physical Version of Metroid Prime Remastered

If you’re trying to find the physical edition of the game at launch, then you will be out of luck, unfortunately. According to Nintendo, the shadow drop launch with the Direct was the digital edition only. The physical edition, however, will not be released until February 22. This will come with the box and, of course, the game cartridge housed within.

As for where you can buy the physical edition, you can get it just about anywhere that sells Nintendo Switch games. Nintendo will sell the game on its website for a slightly higher price (given it costs more to sell a physical copy, obviously), while you can also find it at places like GameStop and Target should you want to go to a local store. If you have any other stores near you that sell newer video games, chances are you’ll find it there too.

The digital age may be great for convenience, but the whole idea of who owns digital rights to a game can be a disaster when it comes time to take the game off digital storefronts. Sometimes, that peace of mind is worth it.
