Samus Returns Has Been Revealed and It's A Metroid II Remake — Metroid

The Austin-based developer is best known for creating the beloved Metroid Prime games, and it is responsible for both of its direct sequels.

Metroid Prime 4 confirmed as in the offing for the Nintendo Switch not enough to slake your thirst for all things Samus Aran? However, long-time Metroid Prime producer Kensuke Tanabe is still leading the project. This is a game being developed for the Nintendo Switch from the ground-up. and that's about it. The announcement was in name only, however, as no release date, screenshots or gameplay were showcased for the upcoming title. So could that potentially confirm the next generation of pocket critters heading to Nintendo's newest console?

Another new feature is the ability to free-aim using complete 360 aiming instead of the standard eight-direction aiming that was present in the old Gameboy game. In other Marvel game news, two new trailers were released today for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, highlighting the many characters showing up for the latest iteration of the hit series.

Fans have been begging Nintendo for years to bring the Metroid Prime series back, as it is easily one of the most beloved series that the company has. Although no additional details were provided, he made clear that it will be at least a year before it's released. Nothing on the mobile app, or the weird Splatoon-inspired accessories, so that is a bit disheartening. Kirby will be coming to Switch in 2018.
