Despite having a seriously dedicated fanbase, Metroid has always been a franchise with a surprisingly low number of total sales (when compared to Nintendo's other major IP, at least). It's had some truly fantastic games over the years, but hasn't ever managed to pull in the numbers that series like The Legend of Zelda or, more recently, Animal Crossing have.
So, we hand it over to you. Will you be buying the game? Are you already a fan of the series, or will this be your first Metroid game? Cast your votes below, and feel free to expand upon your answers in the comments.
