Metroid Samus Returns

Nintendo fans were very surprised that after the much welcomed Metroid Prime 4 announcement from Nintendo's E3 direct, there was still more Metroid to reveal. During the treehouse presentation following the direct the treehouse team revealed that the 3DS would also be getting a metroid game, Metroid Samus Returns. The game is a remake of the 1991 Gameboy title Metroid II: Return of Samus. However, Samus Returns will feature a great deal of new content and won't be a strict remake. The game is coming sooner than one might expect, with a release date of September 15, 2017.

It's very exciting to see a great Samus Aran adventure get remade and rather refreshing to see another 2d (more like 2.5d) Metroid game. After many years of dissapointment from Metroid fans, it looks like things are starting to turn around. What's more, the game will feature a $49.99 collector's edition that includes a soundtrack and will launch alongside two new amiibos. Make sure to check out the trailer below and stay tuned for more news on Metroid Samus Returns.
