Metroid II has always been the series' black sheep (at least, until Other M came along), and a game that fans wanted to see live up to its potential.
Now the 3DS is the handheld of choice with Metroid: Samus Returns and the traditional platforming exploration is being mixed with new, modern twists. Considering its 2.5D makeup, new physical combat system, and higher precision aiming, it will certainly have a lot of new tricks. Check out the gallery below and let us know what you think of Samus's return to the Nintendo handheld library.
The game is scheduled to launch on 15 September and hopes to bring back "the feel of the classic adventures, but with improved graphics and new abilities". Since the first three games are first-person shooters, we're led to believe this'll be more of the same.
The game's soundtrack is being composed by two of the composers from the SNES game Super Metroid. Will you be picking up a Switch console if you havent already? This game is also being developed by a new development team.
It seems like it's been an eternity since Samus Aran got her due at E3, but that moment finally arrived during Nintendo's E3 video today.
It's going to be interesting to see where they go with this game. That's highly unlikely. But in reality, we aren't sure what Nintendo has in store.
