Although a fully-fledged Nintendo 3DS re-imagining is yet to be officially unveiled, earlier this morning Nintendo announced that Samus Aran would be coming to the Nintendo 3DS in her celebrated Game Boy form, when the classic Metroid II: Return of Samus hits the Nintendo 3Shop a bit later this week. This is the second instalment of the Metroid series, and it charts Samus’ struggle to rid planet SR388 of the Metroid menace. Metroid II: Return of Samus was the only Metroid game to have been exclusively developed for Nintendo’s original Game Boy console.
Samus has been tasked with battling through a sprawling underworld, endeavouring to hunt down and destroy every last Metroid. Build up your arsenal by locating unique and mysterious artefacts and master the new abilities and powerful new weapons.
Metroid II: Return of Samus will be available to download on your Nintendo 3DS later this week.
