What a wait it’s been for Metroid fans – 7 years since the last entry in the series (no, Federation Force does not count) with fans wondering when, or if, we were going to see the legendary bounty hunter again. If course, at E3 this year Nintendo revealed that they were working on not one but two Metroid games – with the first, the aptly named Samus Returns, being much closer to release than anyone had thought.
Yes, Samus is set to return next Friday, in an enhanced remake of her 1991 Game Boy adventure Metroid II: Return of Samus. This isn’t the first time that a classic Metroid game has gotten an enhanced remake either – 2004’s Metroid: Zero Mission was am amazing updated take on the original Metroid game for the NES. The Metroid fan is me can’t wait for next Friday, and the Zelda fan in me is curiously wondering about the future.
What if we got an enhanced remake of the NES Zelda titles? A chance to redeem Zelda II especially in people’s eyes would be welcome. Or how about a Zero Mission-style remake of Link’s Awakening? A Link Between Worlds was practically a enhanced remake, but what if they took it further with A Link to the Past? Would that be something you guys would want to see? And which games would you want? Sound off in the comments below!
