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...
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.
