Having the amiibo in the pose of the original return of Samus game cover made me want it instantly. Despite it's simplicity that cover is one of my favourites, to the point that I'll choose this one over the original Samus amiibo even if I like Other M suit more. I'm also getting that Squishy Metroid because, well... it's squishy.

I will own the amiibo. I will own the SE even if I have to pay 3-4 times the store price. I will be playing this on release. The reveal trailer for this game made me emotional, as I've wanted a return of 2D Metroid, an official remake of Metroid II from Nintendo and a return of melee mechanics that they first toyed with in Other M. I've beaten the original twice via the 3DS VC and have played a few hours of AM2R. I'm more than ready for September.

The trailer for this games has 1.4 million views right now. Only Super Mario Odyssey's (4.4m) and Prime 4's teaser (1.2) have surpassed the 1m mark. Make no mistake, people are excited fot this.

@Tsurii
You don't.

But extent of commotion and chatter is a pretty reliable indicator for interest and excitement..

@Tsurii If it's only going to happen once, I'm very glad it's this time. That special edition is packed.

I have such mixed feelings when watching Sakamoto talk in that interview, and it's exciting. Seeing how Other M turned out, he also made Fusion, and Zero Mission with great passion and was well received. He looks really confident with what he's produced here.

Makes Sakamoto feel mysterious. I just wanna dissect him, about Metroid.

Wow.

This makes even AM2R look like a preschool effort and you can tell Doc put a lot of effort into his version.

The maps from Samus Returns are not complete, they're put together from the little bits that they showed in the stream.

@Meowpheel Yeah, you can that the individual rooms aren't mapped completely. That's not the point, though. There's tons of stuff that isn't in the original or AM2R.

@Tsurii I don't think he's meaning that the new stuff and areas are a bad thing, quite the contrary.

@Tsurii Lol no problem, it's understandable.

Honestly I'm just so happy we are getting this, I still can't believe it. What do you guys think the amiibo will do? Maybe some kind of extra like a Boss Rush mode, a new area or a creature gallery? A mini game of a dating simulator in which you, as Samus, have to choose between an Omega Metroid, space pirate #253, Mother Brain, Kraid and Ridley?

Realistically, something like refilling health and such.

Name-checking for anyone that's still concerned about Mercury Steam's involvement:

Yoshio Sakamoto is acting as the producer of the title. Not sure if he's in the director's seat this time around, although he probably is. What's known is that Takehiko Hosokawa is directing the title. The man acted as game designer in Fusion and scenario designer for Zero Mission, so he has tons of experience with these titles. More importantly, he's also the one redesigning the map. Kenji Yamamoto and Minako Hamano are handling the music. Both have been involved with the series' soundtrack since Super Metroid.

Seems like Nintendo is overseeing this title heavily. They really want to make sure it's a quality project.
