    I can already see it now, I buy the turquoise new2ds on July 28, then a day later Nintendo announces a beautiful new Special Edition Metroid new2ds that puts the Japan DQ XI SE to shame and I have to buy it too. fml.

    In nintendos defense, they waited until the game was finished and out before taking it down. By that point it was all over the internet and Im sure nintendo knew this and didnt take it down before this intentionally. It had been in development for like 6 years with online beta demos and they left it until the final release for it to be spread all over. Saying they cancelled it is misleading, they "took it down" in name and protected their ip but also let fans get a hold of it with a little googling.

    Yeah, I said cancelled because the devs wanted to add more stuff to it and keep it updated. AM2R is a masterpiece for me, the music: a mixup between Metroid II and Metroid Prime 2 is just incredible an inmersive, the backgrounds design is awesome, it has near perfect development quality, thats why I am so critical with Samus Return, I feel they could do more, if the game was aiming at 60 fps , kay Let the graphics be lower quality for enhanced gameplay, but no3DS enhanced graphics and 30 fps? I have my faith lost on this dev team, I would like to know what engine are they using.

    Here where I live when i was studying IT engineering, I went to a conference offered by another group of devs that worked alongside mercury for creating the first lords of shadow, they job was manage npc IA and the graphical engine of the game, they told us that main maercury team(dunno if they are the same guys now) gave a lot of problems when developing the game's engine because they wanted to add stuff that the PS3 GPU couldnt handle as complex HDR an such, they didnt care about optimization, just throw the stuff at the hardware and see if it runs, funny story: they crashed an early demo in front of some EUSony executive "It was running like 20-30fps, Victor Belmont enters a church, dynamic lights through windows, game crashed"

    Hopefully sakamoto was directing the development and is a minimal QA assurance but, as a very big metroid fan I am happy to know 2 games are coming, but sad because one of them is not developed with passion.

    Hahaha, I hope not, for me neither mp1,mp2 or mp3 was bad. I understand Retro doesnt make the game since they were like disbanded and regrouped to do donkey kong games.

    What's wrong with 2D sprites? I've played Maplestory 3D and that game looks gorgeous. Why does everything have to be 3D? I miss sprites...

    So, this'll be the sixth 2D Metroid game, isn't?

    Graphics - 3d models.
    Gameplay - 2d.

    I get it, you miss the sprites... but this (whether you like it or not) is a 2d Metroid game.
    Look at the latest versions of Street Fighter and King of Fighters - 3d models and environments, but they're still 2d fighting games (because the movement only occurs in 2 dimensions). Unlike Tekken or Dead or Alive, which also have 3d models and environments, but are 3d fighting games (because movement is in all directions).

    You seem to have had a different concept of what to expect from a new 2d Metroid than most of us who have been begging for one since the Prime games... we weren't begging for sprites, we were begging for a return to 2 dimensional gameplay.
    ...and who knows, maybe (like a great many other 'HD remakes' out there) they'll include a classic mode, where at the push of a button it flips the graphics to 16bit sprites... or even 8bit gameboy sprites.

    Regardless, anyone that's wanted a 2d Metroid game for the last decade or so should buy this just to show Nintendo that this was the game we wanted and that they should make more.

    Depends on how you look at it; original Metroid and the GBA's Zero Mission are pretty much the same game (Zero Mission pretty much replaces the NES original). Same with Metroid 2 on gameboy and this.
    So, there have only been four 2d Metroid games, with an additional pair of 'improved' releases.

    It's actually called 2.5D.

    That remains to be seen. 2.5d is where gameplay occurs in 2 dimensions, but the environment can 'move' in 3 dimensions (from the footage shown so far, all gameplay is 2d with only the 'cut scenes' and 'special moves' switching to dynamic 3d views).
    Street Fighter 5 isn't 2.5d.

    I wouldn't say the nes metroid and zero mission are the same game in anything other than story, and even then zero mission has a story that extends beyond the original game. Although zero mission is a remake, it is a vastly different game and could have been passed off as a new entry if the story wasn't identical. But I agree, it does replace the nes game.

    AHA! Looks awesome! The long anticipated finally arrives! Gameplay looks sweet, but those cartoony graphics, why?
