Metroid Prime Remastered Fan Makes Custom Instruction Manual For The Game

Physical instruction manuals for video games have largely gone the way of plastic cartridges, but one passionate fan has created one for Metroid Prime Remastered. As was the case with many releases in the Nintendo GameCube era, the original Metroid Prime included a full-color instruction booklet that went over the game’s control scheme, listed the various power-ups that seasoned bounty hunter Samus Aran could collect during her latest high-risk mission, and even featured some background lore about Metroid’s ancient Chozo and the monstrous Space Pirates.


Alas, physical instruction booklets like the one included in the original GameCube release of Metroid Prime have all but disappeared in the wake of countless internet forums devoted to cataloging every hidden tip and secret in a given video game – not to mention efforts from game companies to cut down on paper waste to be more environmentally conscious. As understandable as these reasons are, many gamers still miss the thrill of looking through a paper manual on the car ride home after buying the latest video game, and some have even dedicated themselves to preserving the instruction booklets of the past in digital form.

A few days ago, a Reddit user by the handle of RowanFN1 shared images of a homemade instruction manual they put together for Metroid Prime Remastered on r/NintendoSwitch. This small, full-color booklet evokes the one from the GameCube original and fits nicely inside the Metroid Prime Remastered Switch case. Fans in the comment section have praised RowanFN1 for their work and have waxed nostalgic for the manuals of gaming generations past, as well as question why publishers don’t at least offer a digital PDF brochure or the option to order a physical one.

Lack of manual aside, Metroid Prime Remastered has been met with praise after it launched on the Nintendo Switch in late February, prompting players to list other classic GameCube titles that they wish would follow in its footsteps. Much of this praise has gone toward Metroid Prime Remastered’s updated visuals and enhanced controls, and Nintendo has even struggled to meet the high demand for the game’s physical release. Just like the 2002 original, Metroid Prime Remastered sends Samus to the derelict world of Tallon IV to uncover a sinister plot by the Space Pirates.

Sadly, while older Nintendo games will likely see new life on the Switch as Metroid Prime has, the paper manuals of past console generations are probably gone forever due to both modern technologies eliminating a need for them and efforts to conserve the resources used to make them. This makes the efforts of fans like RowanFN1 all the more impressive, with their custom-made Metroid Prime Remastered manual serving as an impressive bridge between two different Nintendo eras.

Metroid Prime Remastered is available now for Nintendo Switch.
