@Meowpheel My strategy every time I play return of Samus:

Not do the logic and practical thing (do a map or google one) and run like crazy for the next hours with a permanent sense of deja vu. Works every time!

@NEStalgia I was able to order it from GS yesterday, and it says it's still available. The amiibo dual-pack is also up now. I hope both do well, sales-wise. If they do, we might get more Metroid games.

I figured this game wasn't PC enough these days to be remade. Our hero is a Genocidal Mecenary on a mission to eradicate an entire species....GO SAMUS!

@blaisedinsd And causes ecological collapse two games (Super, Fusion) later. Who's betting on a X parasite teaser at the end of the game?

Alone, a force. Together, a force of nature.

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.

This. The original was fairly linear, dull, and empty so it wouldn't stand out much nowadays. That's why Doc changed up the design in AM2R and that's why this game will probably do the same. I'm also hoping that like AM2R, this game will add more character to the areas instead of just being generic caves and ruins. Making the main area a regular cave is fine but the other areas should have more variety and better theming to really make them interesting to visit.

@Monado_X Hmm, it shows as available, but I tried to order it a few times yesterday and today, and no matter if I pick checkout for online, or pick up in store, once I get to the checkout part it ejects it from the cart and shows an error saying no longer available (even though it's still listed as available.) Maybe you got in just at the right moment.

@NEStalgia Hmm, I was able to proceed to checkout just now. How far were you able to go before it booted you? Maybe use a new browser?

I hope this remake adds more bosses as well. AM2R knocked it out of the park on that front with the robot bosses, and I want to see more SR388 wildlife like Serris and Arachnus. Don't put every Fusion boss in there, but tie both games more strongly in some way.

@meleebrawler I really like this idea. If the team plans to flesh out the chozo lore of the game, it's a must.

@Meowpheel 5 (types of) bosses + Arachnus is still a pitiful ammount of bosses for a 2D Metroid. Zero Mission doesn't have many bosses, but they're all unique.

I don't think I've ever played a Metroid game longer than perhaps 30 minutes on the SNES. I can hardly wait to get this. I should probably also think about playing the trilogy or Other M on my Wii...

“[In] this game there’s a lot of background, there’s a lot of lore involved in this title. But it’s not like a novel or something. It incorporates the lore, but it’s not integral to the gameplay experience. It’s in the background more than in the foreground.
There is definitely information for the players to get that revolves around sort of the larger storyline.”

I'm so happy Nintendo is expanding their in-universe lore capabilities. I'm getting this the second it releases

I'd call this one YAM2R, but I like Nintendo's title better.

Agreed. The Metroids never really felt like bosses to me when there's so many of them (they're more like minibosses than full bosses) and it'd be weird if they left Arachnus as the only one. And with the new combat mechanics in this game, boss battles should be a lot more dynamic and interesting. So I see no reason not to throw in some actual bosses into this game.

Where's the legion of people who've been begging for a new Metroid all these years? Particularly the ones always talking about a 2D Metroid?

I'd expect this thread to be a little more lively than 6 pages by now

It's on 3DS. That probably puts a slight dent in some people's hype.

I don't think page number really represents hype for the game. I'm sure everyone who's been wanting a 2D Metroid is extremely happy at the moment. Plus, I'm guessing this game might be the first of a few. Maybe after this we get an actual Metroid 5

It looks like Best Buy sold out their amiibo preorders for the 2pk.

My other Switch is a WiiU.
