Try not to break your 3DS.



Among all of the heavy hitters you expected to see from Nintendo at E3 2017, the surprise game that quickly took over Nintendo's E3 coverage was easily Metroid: Samus Returns. While it may not be in the same ballpark as the anticipation behind Metroid Prime 4, we at least got to see a ton of Samus Returns in action at the show. The game's promotion has continued into San Diego Comic Con 2017, as IGN got a 15-minute walkthrough on a few sections of the game.
Here's the video:



The things that stand out here are the Spider Ball ability, which allows the player to scale walls with ease, but can come with a few challenges itself. As you can see, Samus Returns has enemies placed on the walls as well as on the ground, which comes with a timed detonation, and getting an enemy to pursue you activates the count down.
The other thing of note is the mini boss battles, which shows off just how much this game will kick your butt. With all of the pre-recorded and planned gameplay demos we tend to see, Nintendo has made a concerted effort to show off players dying in battle. It may not be the sexiest of outcomes, but it is definitely representative of the product they are putting out, and it can be pretty tense to watch.
Metroid: Samus Returns releases exclusively on Nintendo 3DS on September 15th, 2017.

Nintendo Reveals Metroid: Samus Returns amiibo Details. July 25, 2017 . 10:00am


In Metroid: Samus Returns, the four compatible amiibo each unlock one immediate bonus and one reward that is only accessible after beating the game.

9 comments Read >



Quote:

Metroid: Samus Returns is going to be compatible with four amiibo. People can use the two Super Smash Bros Samus figures, as well as the two specifically made for Metroid: Samus Returns. Now, thanks to Nintendo’s Japanese website, we know what each figure will do when scanned into the game. Each of the amiibos will unlock one immediate bonus in Metroid: Samus Return, as well as one reward you can access after beating the game once.

The standard Samus amiibo, from the Super Smash Bros. line, will give a Missile Reserve Tank that will automatically refill your missiles once when it runs out as you are playing. After you beat the game, it adds concept art to the Gallery.

The Zero Suit Samus Super Smash Bros. amiibo will grant an Energy Reserve Tank that will restore your health once automatically if it hits zero while playing. It also adds a sound test to the Gallery after you beat the game.

The Metroid: Samus Returns Samus amiibo gives players a Aeon Reserve Tank that will restore Aeon once if it runs out while you are playing. Once you beat the game, Metroid II art appears in the Gallery thanks to this figure.

Finally, the Metroid amiibo unlocks a Metroid Marker that shows you the next one closest to Samus in-game. Once you beat the game, it unlocks a Fusion difficulty level that starts Samus off in the Fusion suit and is supposedly more challenging.

Metroid: Samus Returns will come to the Nintendo 3DS on September 15, 2017.

Metroid Producer Sakamoto Says He Has Wanted To Make A 2D Metroid Game For A Long Time. September 5, 2017 . 8:30am

In a recent interview, Metroid producer Yoshio Sakamoto reflected back on his work with the original Metroid game and spoke of how he’s wanted to create a 2D Metroid game for a while.

22 comments Read >

Metroid: Samus Returns is due out for the 3DS in less than two weeks, and Game Informer recently sat down with producer Yoshio Sakamoto to discuss his work with the franchise since the beginning. Originally, Sakamoto wasn’t even a part of the first Metroid’s team, but got assigned the project after they encountered some problems.

Sakamoto reflected on his experience with the original Metroid, saying the following:
“My boss told me that the Metroid team was having a very hard time, and as someone who had experience on building video game projects could I go and somehow help this game progress to release? In short, I was forcefully asked to participate. By his tone, I really smelled danger. And as I joined the project and looked around, I realized that the release date was right around the corner but the project had nothing there. Even with our limited resources and time, I figured out how we could leverage the existing components of the game to create variation and an exciting experience.”
“Metroid was one of my first experiences on a pretty big video game project, but I wasn’t sure if players would enjoy the game. I thought that it was a special game, and even then, I believed that it could be a special franchise, something that I would like to continue. Through the development of Metroid 1, I really grasped the possibilities and potential of a video game.”

In regards to Samus Returns, Sakamoto has been wanting to work on a 2D Metroid for a while, as he went on to explain.
“I have been wanting to make a 2D Metroid game for four or five years. Compared to the rest of the Metroid franchise, Metroid II has a unique game design and its characteristics really stand out. I didn’t make the original, but I have huge respect for the original game. It tells the story of an important event in the Metroid series, which is Samus meeting the big Metroid, so I wanted players to have the opportunity to experience this very important event in the franchise.”

You can read the rest of the interview with Sakamoto here.

Metroid: Samus Returns will release for the Nintendo 3DS on September 15th, 2017.

Metroid II Wasn’t MercurySteam’s First Choice To Remake Out Of The Metroid Games. September 10, 2017 . 1:30pm


When MercurySteam originally approached Nintendo with the idea of remaking a Metroid game, they initially wanted to remake Metroid: Fusion.

Next week marks the release of Metroid: Samus Returns, Nintendo and MercurySteam’s remake of the original GameBoy title Metroid II: Return of Samus. However, Metroid II initially wasn’t the Metroid game that MercurySteam approached Nintendo with to remake.

Game Informer found out that MercurySteam originally wanted to remake Metroid: Fusion. Metroid producer Yoshio Sakamoto was impressed with the idea pitch, however, he ultimately decided on remaking Metroid II, noting that he wished more people had played the original on GameBoy given that it introduced many of the series’ popular features such as the Spider Ball, Space Jump, and Plasma Beam.

I've only played it for about 45min, but so far it feels great. I'm still getting used to the melee attack, as that's a new move for Samus, but overall, the game plays great. And the graphics looks great on the 3DS. Everybody who said the 3D looks good, was telling the truth. The backgrounds really pop in 3D.

Can't wait t play more this weekend when I have some free time.

Does having to use the circle pad hinder the experience?

No. Metroid has never been a twitch based game, so the circle pad feels fine.

If you're a huge Metorid fan, sure. But if you're not that into it, than I don't know what to tell you? I still think the 3DS is my favorite Nintendo system ever made(the Switch could easily take its place in a year). It has a huge library of amazing games, it's pretty cheap, and is highly portable. There's plenty of great games to play besides Metroid, but again, if you're a fan of 2D Metroid, I would say it's worth it.

thanks.

there are several games on the 3DS that I'm interested in, but maybe after another price drop or really good Holiday sale or something.

also, still waiting if VC comes to the Switch. if it's not any time soon, then maybe I'll pick up the 3DS just for the VC.

you can play NES/SNES VC titles on the Switch, yes?
