Recently, Nintendo shadow dropped Metroid Prime Remastered, and while many have been loving the game, it has bumped into one point of controversy to do with the original developers not being specifically named in the credits of the new title.

There's a simple nod to how Metroid Prime Remastered is based on the work of the original development staff, but it fails to name those who worked on the game.
