A new 2D Metroid game has just been announced, ironically enough as a remake of Metroid 2: Return of Samus that recently got a fan remake. Metroid: Samus Returns is headed to the Nintendo 3DS this September.
The Nintendo Direct has just wrapped up, giving us a glimpse of what to expect from Nintendo in the next couple years, at least as far as games go. There was no word on things like the Switch’s online features or the virtual console, but there were several games teased during the video presentation. One of which brought a cheer to my throat.
