    Nintendo shut it down, but it's still floating around.

    It'd be fun to play it on a handheld, but they only managed to make it for PC.

    I hear people got Linux versions to work...is there a way to get it to work on the 3ds?

    From what I remember, one needs the source code to port it over to the 3ds. The game was using game maker studio which does not currently have an interpreter on the 3ds. So unless you write a program to run game maker studio games on the 3ds or get the source code from the developer, sadly metroid 2 remake is not available on the 3ds.
