Nintendo has surprised fans with the announcement of Metroid: Samus Returns for Nintendo 3DS during its E3 2017 Treehouse live stream. The game is a remake of the classic Metroid II: Return of Samus for Game Boy developed by Mercury Steam. It features a classic 2D appearance with characters and environments designed on 3D, with certain skills triggering a spectacular change of perspective in order to throw special attacks.

As Nintendo explains in their note, the game features some additions to the selection of moves and abilities of the protagonist, Samus Aran, such as the powerful Melee Counter, 360-degree Free Aim Mode and mysterious Aeion Abilities. Apart from completely rebuilding the graphics, the developers have created a new color palette that makes the game more atmospheric and fully work as a modern title.

The news come on the same day that Nintendo has announced the development of Metroid Prime 4 for Nintendo Switch.

Metroid: Samus Returns will be released on September 15th for Nintendo 3DS. Watch the trailer below.
