Metroid II was the first game in the series that I completed. Thanks to Club Nintendo (R.I.P.), I was able to download it on my 3DS a few years ago. Needless to say, I'm stoked for this remake!

As for MercurySteam being involved, while I never played Mirror of Fate itself, I did quite enjoy the demo. I'm definitely giving this one a chance.

Currently playing: Ys I & II Chronicles+ (PC; Ys I: Omen), Gato Roboto (Switch)

Feel free to send me a Switch friend request, but please tell me first. Otherwise, I probably won't accept.

I can't believe they actually made this. Guess they saw how much people liked AM2R and wanted to capitalize on it. There's definitely some interesting things about this game, the melee counter and Aeion abilities definitely spice things up. Melee counter especially really takes Other M's combat and tones it down in a way that actually adds to the gameplay.

That being said, there's probably going to be some things AM2R does better. Already the Arachnus fight looks worse than AM2R's.

I'm actually glad to hear MercurySteam is working on this as Mirror of Fate had some of the best 3d I've seen on the system. Can't wait to get my hands on this!

@Spoony_Tech I wasn't, as I didn't care for MoF, but the treehouse footage reassured me. It looks and plays like an updated Metroid game, and has music that was composed by a previous Metroid composer. I think this is going to be great.

@Bolt_Strike This game has undoubtedly been in development for a good while. Long before the AM2R controversy, assuredly. It takes time to create polished commercial products.

Yeah I think it would be a bit silly to think they pasted this together in a few months just because people liked that other project.

I'm sure this game has been at least a few years in development.

It probably began as that original concept from some years ago.

I feel as though for a lot of players, including myself, this may as well not be a remake as a lot of people never played the original. Pretty sure this will be a day one download for me.

Ya this feels like a brand new game to me. Might as well be.

Those aeion powers seem really OP. I hope they're not abusable.

To be fair, remaking Metroid 2 as it is without going off the lines to make it more interesting would result in a very boring game.

The original game isn't very long or hard, if you just add a map and make things easier to distinguish then you'll make it even easier and shorter.

@Ralizah The thing is, they seem to be completely passive bonuses. You'll probably be able to skip them, even. The aeion meter limits how many times you can use them too, so they're not a win button.

@Meowpheel That's why I'm expecting a major overhaul in that regard. Same reason why they have described it as a 'reimagining' of Metroid II.

Hopefully this is Metroid II's "Zero Mission."

Samus Returns is currently sitting at #7 on the Amazon Video Game sales charts, in the US, at least. It's sitting above Mario + Rabbids, which made it to #3 Monday, Splatoon 2 and Breath of the Wild Switch, along with PS Store cash cards and other controllers and stuff. Metroid Prime 4 is at #10, believe it or not.

@Monado_X In Spain it goes:

#1 Mario Odyssey
#2 Mario + Rabbids
#3 Metroid Prime 4
#4 ARMS
#5 Crash Bandicoot Trilogy
#6 Samus Returns

Pretty crazy, since everyone buys Sony products here.

I managed to pre-order the limited edition with the soundtrack yesterday. Didn't wanna wait and miss my chance. But yeah, Nintendo's been killing the charts all year now. Odyssey moved into the #2 spot for a it yesterday, knocking one of the PS cash cards off, which is huge, cause those NEVER move.

So has anybody managed to pre-order the SE yet? The only place I'm finding with it listed is GS, and it kicks it out of the cart as no longer available any time I try to check out
