Brave the hostile terrain of an alien planet teeming with vicious life
forms as legendary bounty hunter Samus Aran. Her mission? Terminate the
Metroid menace in this masterful reimagining of her 1991 Game Boy™
adventure. Samus Aran's arsenal has been enhanced with new moves and
abilities that are sure to help her face the deadly surprises that
await. 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 only on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
This intense, side-scrolling action platformer has been completely
remade with engaging and immersive 3D visuals and a rich, atmospheric
Classic Metroid II: Return of Samus gameplay is joined by a wealth of
new content, including a set of brand new abilities that utilizes a
mysterious energy resource called "Aeion," a powerful melee
counterattack, and 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 the mystery of Planet SR388's past.
Two new amiibo™ figures*—Samus Aran and Metroid—will be released as a
set alongside the game. This game is also compatible with the Zero
Suit Samus and Samus amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series.
Functionality details will be revealed at a later date.
While supplies last, fans will be able to purchase a special edition
of the game, which includes a physical copy of the game, a
sound-selection CD featuring 25 tracks from across the Metroid
franchise, and a reversible title-sheet insert for the game case.
