Description

A classic Metroid adventure returns, rebuilt from the ground up!

Brave the hostile terrain of an alien planet teeming with vicious life forms as legendary bounty hunter Samus Aran. Her mission? Terminate the Metroid menace in this masterful reimagining of her 1992 Game Boy adventure.

Samus Aran’s arsenal has been enhanced with new moves and abilities that are sure to help her face the deadly surprises that await. This intense, side-scrolling action platformer is a great entry point into the Metroid franchise and perfect for returning fans as well, and it’s available only on Nintendo 3DS family systems.

Features:

  • This intense, side-scrolling action platformer has been completely remade with engaging and immersive 3D visuals and a rich, atmospheric colour palette
  • Classic Metroid II: Return of Samus gameplay is joined by a wealth of new content, including a set of brand new abilities that utilises a mysterious energy resource called “Aeion,” a powerful melee counterattack, and 360-degree Free Aim Mode
  • There are plenty of secrets to find – and if you uncover enough of them, you may even start to unravel the mystery of Planet SR388’s past
  • Two new amiibo figures (sold separately) – Samus Aran and Metroid – will be released as a set alongside the game. This game is also compatible with the Zero Suit Samus and Samus amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series. Functionality details will be revealed at a later date

Customer Reviews

a return to form for a famed bounty hunter

Reviewed by on

Metroid Samus Returns is just that a return to former glory for our favourite suited bounty hunter. Although the game suffers from some repetitiveness and the counter system is a great addition but also a crutch. This is truly a return to form and brings in hope for the future of the Metroid franchise.

Recommendation: This is definitely a buy, both for old fans and new players that want to try out a Metroid game for the first time.

A Fantastic 2D return for my favourite bounty hunter!

I was so stoked to hear about this game coming, and after seeing the Legacy Edition going up for grabs in Europe I thought it would be something I would only see online, overseas. Holy shmoly, then you guys got it up for pre-order and I never clicked so fast on the pre-order button. I adore the box set and the fact that you guys always cater for all gamers on all devices makes me beam with joy!

I've been gaming for 30 years and have loved the Metroid series, and this game takes me right back to 1994 Super Metroid on SNES. Phenomenal art style, tight controls, brilliant soundtrack and the same isolated feeling Metroid games are known for. This game had me hooked all the way throughout the campaign and I have since played it a second time on higher difficulty. A masterclass in game design that does the Nintendo brand proud. Developers Mercury Steam is right up there with the best 2st party Nintendo games. Cannot recommend this high enough, simply stellar!
