    Nintendo isn't out of announcements, even after their Spotlight, it seems, as a new game was revealed during their Treehouse. Metroid: Samus Returns is a reimagining of the 1991 title Metroid II: Return of Samus.


    Developer MercurySteam will be handling the game, and are known for developing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. It'll release on Semptember 15.

    hell fucking yes.

    I hope its just as fluid as AM2R. A lot of gameplay in the trailer looks preanimated.

    Ultra Metroid II, but at least this was wanted.

    Gah. It would've been cool to have this on the Switch too. :(

    If it wasn't MercurySteam I'd be excited.
    Fingers crossed it's up to the quality of the previous 2D games.

    So we can see AM2R was C&D'd because of this.
    ..Pokemon Prism or something related coming out soon?

    They aren't killing the 3ds, because they think the Switch is a console, not a hybrid.

    So, does this mean I need to know what happened in the original Metroid?

    Not saying to snipe the 3DS but a dual-release on two platforms.

    It's looking good from the Gameplay and Sakamoto is directing it. I think he's going to push them to make it good.

    Finally a modern Metroid where you fight all the different Metroid stages as the main focus. Graphics looks ugly though.

    No. Metroid II is unrelated to Metroid I in terms of plot. Hell, it's the one game without Ridley.
