About the Game

Metroid: Samus Returns + T-Shirt

This intense, side-scrolling action platformer is a great entry point into the Metroid franchise and perfect for returning fans as well; and it’s available exclusively on Nintendo 3DS family systems.

This intense, side-scrolling action platformer has been completely remade with engaging and immersive 3D visuals and a rich, atmospheric colour palette.

Classic Metroid II: Return of Samus gameplay is joined by a wealth of new content, including a set of brand new abilities that utilise a mysterious energy resource called "Aeion", a powerful melee counterattack and a 360-degree Free Aim Mode.

There are plenty of secrets to find, and if you uncover enough of them you may even start to unravel Planet SR388’s mysterious past.

Two new amiibo figures (sold separately) – Samus Aran and Metroid – will be released alongside the game. This game is also compatible with the Zero Suit Samus and Samus amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series.

It's mostly good, but the bosses (not the Metroids) deal far too much damage from a single hit.

While it's nice to finally have a new Metroid game and a bonus T-shirt to boot, the game itself is seriously lacking in design and game play. You shuffle from area to area, "solving" puzzles, and by that I mean they're pretty simple, until you reach a tough mob in that zone, a " Metroid" which is what all of the bosses are except some are slightly different versions. I unfortunately haven't managed to finish the game yet after falling to boredom while playing it (it doesn't help it's on DS, tiny screen, barely any use of the touch screen that can't be done with buttons) and that's coming from someone who's loved and played most other Metroid installments.

It's a shame really considering the most recent Zelda and Mario games are fantastic, and yet the new Metroid game is just.. appalling. For me those are the big 3 Nintendo games I've grown up with and played over many years, and it feels like Metroid is falling out.

Zelda BoTW and Mario Odyssey are both huge leaps and bounds from their predecessors, why Isn't Metroid being taken that way too? I'd love to see an open world Metroid. Here's hoping Metroid Prime 4 is an improvement to the series.
