3DS is Getting a New Metroid Game Called Samus Returns

By Matt Wales on at

Well, we wanted Metroid, and Metroid is what we got! Not only is Metroid Prime 4 on its way, Nintendo just announced another new entry in the series: Metroid Samus Returns, coming to 3DS.

It looks wonderful - a proper, classic-style side-scrolling adventure (in fact, it's a re-imagining of the 1991 Gameboy game Metroid 2: Return of Samus, we're told) - and it's being developed by Castlevania: Lords of Shadow developer MercurySteam. You can check it out below.
