Metroid: Samus Returns Announced for 3DS

Metroid: Samus Returns Announced for 3DS

Metroid is back in force! Alongside the Metroid Prime 4 announcement, the series is getting a 2D revival as well! Samus Returns is a reimagining of Metroid II for the Game Boy – right down to the logo – released way back in 1991. In fact, it’s…older than me. The developer of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is behind the game, which is appropriate given that both franchises make up the ‘Metroidvania’ genre.

The game will release on September 15, and you can watch the trailer right here.
