Samus Returns proves once again that Nintendo hasn't lost it's magic even though the game was developed by MercurySteam we all know how Castlevania Mirror of Shit turned out to be. So yeah with Nintendo & Sakamoto's guidance MS gave us another great 2D Metroid. Oh, and for those wondering... No, it's not AM2R...

 It's better.

Even though Prime 4 is confirmed for Switch and will probably see a 2019 or 2020 release, i'm actually more excited (and hoping) for a Metroid 5 (Dread) on Switch it's been too long since the story ended with Fusion. The game should be another 2.5D Metroid game like SR but with a more non-linear world like Super that encourages you to explore every nook and cranny and with a not too heavy nor too lightly focus on the story. I sure want to know what Samus is going to do now with her Metroid DNA, X parasyte, Varia, Gravity, Fusion suit.

Speaking of equipment and powerups i think the next game should really introduce some new things to the Metroid formula because finding the same old upgrades Powerbombs, Screwattacks, Grapple, Super Missles, Ice Beams is getting really old now, very predictable. The same goes for the same old boss fights which is where Metroid 2 stands out since the only bosses in this game are the Metroids though it does get repetitive at times. I liked the Aeon abilities in SR since they were mostly optional and fun new ideas i would love to see them return and have a more focus in the next game.

Metroid is back baby.

 

EDIT: Why the hell are people voting 4D? What's wrong with you people.

EDIT 2: Please guys i know this is quite common but we all love Metroid, some of us like 2D Metroid others like 3D Metroid some of us like Federation Force let's just try to keep it civil alright.

I think right now the focus will be Metroid Prime 4



 

I would love some 2D HD sprites. 3D graphics on 2D Metroid is just jarring to me, and I'm not sure why. Maye it's because I love Fusion's artsyle so much (haven't played yet, but it looks beautiful). Where's the GBA-DS sprites nowadays? Megaman Zero, Astroboy GBA, The Minish Cup, TWEWY, Megaman ZX, the DS Castlevanias...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Good to see someone else hyping this game, it deserves more attention.

Have you got 100% on it? If you do, it unlocks a certain something that might be teasing a Metroid 5, just saying. At this point I'm definitely more hyped for that than for Prime 4, I really want to see how far MercurySteam can go after doing this remake so well.



1) Wait and see for the sales numbers

2) I'm expecting a remake of Super Metroid, if there ever was to be a new 2D Metroid game to be honest.

3) I'm not finished with the game yet, but I've been spoiled on some unexpected boss encounter and to be honest, the metroids ar a bit repetitive, but they spiced it up with environments in which you fight that are quite diverse + the new bosses makes up for it easily.

Nah, Samus Returns looks beautiful in 3D, the depth it adds to the world is awesome. Sure without the 3D effect on something like the Switch I guess it wouldn't have the same impact, but they could make up for that with much (MUCH) better HD visuals.

Metroid 5? So Metroid, Metroid II, Super Metroid and Metroid Fusion are 1-4?

Yeah, I mean... the games even say so?

I've watched AM2R and yeah, even as a fan of 2D sprites, the 3D background visual in Samus Returns is far more interesting than it would have been in 2D.
