Metroid: Samus Returns has been announced for Nintendo 3DS. A re-imaging of Metroid II: Return of Samus, it's a 2D-ish Metroid game that takes its design ideas from the past Metroid Prime games, as well as Other M. Despite what Plant said, it doesn't appear to have Fed Force in its lineage. :P

 

 

Also announced were new amiibo, including a squishy-fun Metroid one that we all need:

Kotaku has a good writeup about some gameplay details that I won't repeat here. Plenty of info can be found elsewhere, too.

A special edition that includes a soundtrack has also been announced.

Metroid: Samus Returns is scheduled to release on September 15, 2017. It's a glorious time to be alive! Share your hype here!

I'm digging this announcement. Totally unexpected, outta nowhere, and coming in 2 months. I never played this game either, so I'm excited for it.

You have to play the original first, to fully appreciate. Go do it now (but find a map somewhere, first). :D

Pfft. Play it without guides. Backtracking for days. Lol.
Excited for this remake/reimagining. It looks so fluid in graphics and gameplay. Metroid making a comeback.

I kinda wanna play Metroid II again now, maybe closer to when this comes out. It's only like a 4 or 5 hour game, might stick it in the Super Game Boy later on in the summer.

 

Or I'll forget about it and play all the other stuff that's coming out, and then get Metroid: Samus Returns and just enjoy that. :D

Well, unlike the Zelda amiibo, at least this pre-order i was able to get. Though i find it suspicious that it lists a release date of 12/31/17
