Metroid: Samus Returns comes to Nintendo 3DS this year (update)

A Metroid adventure called Metroid: Samus Returns is in the works for Nintendo 3DS, and it will hit Sept. 15. Nintendo of Americap resident Reggie Fils-Aime debuted the first gameplay from the project during Nintendo’s E3 2017 Treehouse livestream.

Unlike last August’s Metroid Prime Federation Force, this is a full-fledged, sidescrolling Metroid game. Samus Aran is back in the driver’s seat — hence that title.

The title is reminiscent of Metroid 2: Return of Samus, as is the gameplay. The game is a “reimagination” of the 1991 Game Boy game, as members of Nintendo said during the stream. Just like that game, there will be plenty of divergent paths, bosses to take on and more in Samus Returns. As Nintendo said, it’s a “classic 2D Metroid to a T.”

Mario possesses man, a frog, a dinosaur and more in Super Mario Odyssey

We’ll be blunt: Super Mario Odyssey looks amazing. The coolest new gameplay feature we saw in the game’s first full trailer may be Mario’s special hat ability. Cappy, his sentient hat, has the power to possess virtually anything in the world.

Yep. Super Mario Odyssey’s coolest mechanic is possession. If Mario flings Cappy at certain people or things, he “captures” them and absorbs their powers. It ... sounds weird, sure — but it looks awesome. Check out a bunch of the creatures and beings whose bodies Mario inhabited during our first peek at the game.

Nintendo at E3 2017: All the trailers from the Nintendo Direct

Nintendo’s E3 presentation was short and sweet, with some wonderful surprises for fans. It’s great to know that a Metroid Prime 4 is on the way for the Nintendo Switch, along with Kirby and Yoshi titles. There’s also a new Pokémon game coming for the system.

And there were enough trailers to keep everyone happy, along with an extensive look at what Super Mario Odyssey is like in action. It turns out Mario keeps his soul inside his hat, and can throw it on top of people, animals and even other obejcts in the world to take them over to continue his adventures. This is a disturbing new addition to the Mario canon, and we’re going to have to sit for a little bit of time to figure out what this all means.
