    Bit of a weird question, but with the 3DS being wide open in terms of piracy now I can see how tempting it would be to download it.

    But should you? I see it as an opportunity to show Metroid is still relevant. If Samus Returns bombs will Prime 4 actually happen?

    I will be buying it myself, I'm sure it will sell well regardless I see it as an opportunity to show faith in Metroid, even if I don't have it in Nintendo.

    I'll use gateway (or other method) to play it, but I'll buy it too, like all my other games I played on 3DS.
    Metroid2 is the only one I never played in the series, I'm glad there's a remake. I'm afraid it's a bit harder than other games.

    I already have the special edition on preorder. Would have loved the steelbook case, however.

    If I have no money when it comes out, I'll pirate it and then buy it later when I have money. I love 2D Metroid, the GBA Metroid games are among my favorite video games ever.

    I honestly don't know. Never played a 2D metroid in my life. Metroid Prime 3 brought me into Nintendo consoles (before then I either didn't know they existed or didn't care enough to buy one). So when Prime 4 is revealed with a release date, you better your biscuits I'll be preordering that with any possible extra editions I can.

    Yeah, the environment felt kind of bland. But to be fair, this game is still in development. It might come out better in the future.

    I am still thinking of buying the game, but right now I am undecided.

    I want to buy it, but I'm just not sure if I'll afford it whenever it releases.
    Either I buy it or I don't. I'm in no rush to play it though.
