    This looks great, a 3d modelled 2d metroid game is something I loved the sound of. Surprised this missed the showing and got saved as a reveal for the treehouse segment.

    Looking forward to this even though I played the original but I am not paying the £39.99 Amazon are currently asking for it.

    Metroid Zero mission was a remake of the original NES game. If you have the ability to play that on Wii U virtual console, that's a better version to play.

    Ooh good shout, thanks. I've still got my DS Lite so could get hold of the GBA cart. Not sure if my compulsions would force me to complete them in order though..

    Does this point towards super metroid being the next candidate for a remake? I'm very down with that in HD on the switch.

    I imagine they'll stick with 2D on the handhelds, and go down the Prime route for the Switch.

    Anyone buy the collector's edition from Nintendo and get it yet? Looks like they sent this second class post.

    Mine's not arrived. It normally takes two days, but they didn't send it until yesterday, so I am hoping it arrives tomorrow.

    Only managed to play for a little while yesterday but it was great to hear that Metroid music again. Can't wait to get stuck in.

    Yes I saw, I kept clicking for about an hour, I don't know why they had it up on their site, it kept coming back with "not currently in stock" I did try though.

    It is a great LE though. I remember forking out 100 for Fire Emblem Fates LE, albeit the RRP of that was 80, but it did feel sore.

    If you are willing to pay it, it's worth it to you [emoji106]

    I've plugged in 12 hours into this and I'm under 40% complete. Absolutely immersed in it. I loved"Other M" regardless of the criticisms, but it has been far too long since there has been a 2D Metroid on the scene.

    How long does this take to actually finish? I've sunk about 5 hours in to a borrowed copy but if I'm not even half way through I might grab my own copy and replay it from the start. Took me a while to get it to click but I'm really enjoying it once you get past how different it is to the old 2d metroids.

    Loving this so far! Has just enough of the old metroids to make it part of the family, but also plenty new to keep it fresh.

    I finished it at the weekend, 100% took about 12-13 hours which is a decent length for a portable title. I'd love to see a super metroid remake like this on the switch. I'm attempting axiom verge now, very metroid like but I'm not enjoying it as much having just played Samus returns

    I wish they'd have done a physical Wii U/3DS release for AV. Just not into my eshop only releases.
