    The graphics dont look all that great but the gameplay is there and it looks like it runs nice and smoothly, liking the new Reion abilities as well

    I'm looking forward to Nintendo discontinuing the DS line. I'd love this on the Switch with all the fancier effects.

    @DakeyrasUK they're on the EG article now. There's one of a metroid breaking out of a glass case (the metroid itself is squishy) and there's one of samus in her metroid 2 pose

    Ever likely they wanted AMR2 closing down. I love Metroid but fucking hell the 3ds is showing its age.

    Take a look at the new 2DSXL coming out late July.

    I'd go for that if I wasn't fussed about the 3D effect (and I'm not)

    Judging by the boss battles in the trailer, there's more scope for battle variety as you now seem to be able to employ a shield. Granted, all the bosses in that trailer were defeated by the same old switcheroo, but at least there seems to be more design of bosses this time around. I guess that's predictable with the greater capacity of carts these days though.

    Theres new AEION powers which weren't in the original, as well as a melee attack/counter
    The environment looks redone completely, and there's also regular suit powers from later games have been put into this one

    Yeah it's a sexy piece of kit. More likely to go for the cheapo normal 2DS though.

    A remake of a game I actually know and used to love. Well that is a first, played intensely on the game boy all those years ago. Will be fun to see how much I remember.

    I only got around to playing Metroid II a few years ago (on the 3DS), but I absolutely loved it. The black and white visuals gave the game a vintage horror vibe which really added to the typical sense of isolation. Considering how much i'm into my retro gaming, i'm sure I wont enjoy this as much as the original, but i'm very happy this exists and i'm more than willing to give it a go!

    How many games have been released that are only compatible with the new 2/3ds line? I got the impression when that launched that it would be the majority of titles, but for example this Metroid doesn't seem to be using the second stick for strafing, so it's compatible with the original 3DS.

    Wait, is it for new or old 3ds?

    It says '3DS family' so I assume both. The game packaging will confirm when it's actually released though.
