While we have to wait until next year to play Metroid on the Switch, Nintendo slipped in an announcement for Metroid: Samus Returns for the 3DS, releasing September 15, 2017. Going back to the classic 2D side-scrolling style, it is supposed to be a “reimagination” of Metroid II: Return of Samus. She has some new abilities this time around that were not in the original title, such as free aiming and melee counter. Aside from remaking a Gameboy classic for the much loved 3DS, Nintendo is also releasing a special edition that includes the game, a CD with 25 tracks from throughout the game series, and not one, but TWO all new amiibo figures!
That is correct. The special edition of Metroid: Samus Returns comes with two amiibos, Samus Aran and a Metroid.
Both will be compatible with the new game, and of course make great additions for amiibo collectors. If we are lucky, they, alongside the current Metroid amiibos, will be compatible with Metroid Prime 4 when it comes to the Switch next year. The best part of the special edition, aside from the awesome amiibos and CD, is the price. Generally a new 3DS game averages $39.99, and for all that it contains the special edition will only an extra $10.00, according to Gamestop’s website. All sorts of cool content for only $49.99, you cannot beat that!
With no release date for the newly announced Switch title, Metroid fans can tide themselves over when Metroid: Samus Returns releases in September.
