I find it funny that they are releasing this and still holding onto the Metroid Prime 3D collection until they get a confirmed release date for 4.

Great to see a new original side scrolling Metroid, although it does look a bit like an HD version of Samus Returns.

I suppose I will get the matching amiibo as well, haven’t purchased any for years.

At least I finally have a reason to dust my Switch off and play it again.

Yup. Should have absolutely been a $40 game. I’ll buy it when I can get it for that much unless I end up in a situation like with Rift Apart that I have expiring rewards/promo offers.

Fascinating. Crazy as this may sound, I want to know where it fits in the story timeline

The Treehouse confirmed Mercury Steam is making the game and that Nintendo started and stopped on the idea of this game twice in the last 15 years.

Twitter user SuperMetalDave64 reports this was previously announced and canceled for NDS. Was that box art real?
