About the Game

Metroid: Samus Returns

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.

A great game with the typical game play you would expect from a Metroid 2d platformer. The 3d element is more of a gimic but the game play and challenges are excellent.
