When Metroid: Samus Returns was announced with a trailer during E3 2017, fans of the franchise were understandably elated to learn that Nintendo was going to be putting out what is essentially a complete remake of the Game Boy classic Metroid 2: Return of Samus that will go on to release for the 3DS. Now, the Big N wants to make sure that gamers are well aware of all the refinements that will take place in the forthcoming title by releasing a short trailer that shows off the space age bounty hunter’s armor, weapons, abilities, and more.
As seen in the trailer below for Metroid: Samus Returns, while the footage is brief – about the length of a television advertisement spot, to be precise – Nintendo manages to pack in quite a lot of information within the clip. For instance, it not only reconfirms the title’s launch next month, but also offers glimpses at Samus’ enhanced power suit, some of the weapons and attachments for her arm cannon, as well as actions she can undertake by using her unique Aeion abilities.
Since the above trailer for Metroid: Samus Returns is so short, it’s likely that many fans would like to learn even more about the game and its various features prior to purchasing it, and Nintendo has thankfully been priming players with details about the game since its reveal during E3 2017. For a much more comprehensive run down of what the 3DS title will contain, gamers can learn even more about Samus’ moves and powers and this overview trailer.
With less than a month to go before Metroid: Samus Returns hits the 3DS, there’s no doubt that fans who played the original Metroid 2 and those who will be experiencing it for the first time are eagerly awaiting the launch, especially since it’s the newest entry in the series in about seven years. With any luck, once Samus Returns releases, Nintendo will unveil more details regarding Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch in order to give the fans of the franchise even more to look forward to.
Metroid: Samus Returns is slated to release on September 15, 2017 for the Nintendo 3DS.
