Wasn't sure which thread to leave this in. This one works.

Sakamoto says why Metroid II was remade:  http://gonintendo.co...nection-to-metr

 

 

GI: Why Metroid II? Why not a new Metroid?

 

Sakamoto: Metroid II really hasn’t been remade or revisited at this point at all and there are a lot of really interesting special things about Metroid II, so we just thought it would be great. And we think there are a lot of people that want to play it and we wanted to give them that opportunity.

 

Metroid II contains something that is really important to the Metroid franchise and that’s the episode where Samus first encounters the baby Metroid. So, we really wanted to revisit that crucial story point on the Metroid timeline. And of course, Metroid II is a bit of an older game, so with the increased technology we have, we thought there are a lot of new things we could bring to it, to give it a little bit of a paint job, and add some really fun stuff. So that combined with the other things I mentioned were really the impetus behind revisiting this title.

 

GI: How significantly will the game differ from the original Metroid II?

 

Sakamoto: It is based on the original, the flow is basically the same, and we have some extra areas and we powered up the map system, but yeah there are definitely new places to check out.

 

Sakamoto also explains why it's taken so long for a "proper" Metroid to come out.  He was also asked about Other M:

http://gonintendo.co...-metroid-metroi

 

 

On why it’s taken so long to make a new 2D Metroid game:

Sakamoto: I’m working on other titles outside of Metroid, of course. I’ve been fairly busy with stuff. There’s a lot of timing involved when all the pieces fall into place, and we have the ability to do some of these things we’ve been thinking about for a long time. I guess for us the timing was two years ago. Or now.

 

On how criticism of Metroid: Other M has affected the depiction of Samus

Sakamoto: To be honest, as far as wanting to change that depiction of Samus, I made what I wanted to make. It did give me some momentum, I guess, and the ability to look at Samus from a new viewpoint, and maybe reconsider what I wanted to show about her.

At least he's honest. "I made what I wanted to make [so STFU!]." :)

Weird that it worked that way, this is what I see.

They probably use cookies to tell if you've viewed it on their site, and mine are still active.

 

Mmmmm ... cookies ...

Well.... I'm salty.

 

I probably still wouldn't get this as I hate physical media, but I would reeeally consider it. It's still pretty lame that this bundle isn't coming to the US. That Steelbook looks mighty fine to me.

Stop reminding me about this! I'm not all about "steelbook editions" and stuff, but it's Metroid, and it has a pin and a keychain (that I wouldn't work because I don't need more balls down there), and an art book!

 

Maybe someone will post the artbook contents online, so we can at least see what we're missing in there.

 

At least we get real Metroid games.
