Let this trailer remind you what Metroid: Samus Returns is about



While Metroid is a fairly popular series, many gamers haven't actually played the Game Boy iteration, Metroid 2. Not only is it relatively obscure (though available on the eShop for 3DS), but Super Metroid eclipses it in nearly every regard and often dominates the conversation about the series.

In an effort to catch everyone up to speed, Nintendo has uploaded an overview trailer for Metroid: Samus Returns, their remake of Metroid's Game Boy incarnation. If nothing else, it gives up another look at this wonderful looking experience, which I'm definitely anticipating pretty hard.

This trailer also serves to remind me that amiibo exist and that I'm still a bit ticked off that extra features are being locked behind them. If you thought that "Fusion" difficulty was just a costume swap, this trailer certainly makes it sound like an "Extra Hard" mode. Even with that crap, I still want Samus Returns, so I guess I'll just have to put these extra modes out of my mind.
