Japan’s 3DS eShop Gets Metroid on February 29
Metroid, the NES classic that first featured legendary bounty hunter Samus Aran, has long been available on the 3DS for members of the system’s Ambassador Program. It won’t be until February 29, though, that the game is made available to everyone in Japan via the 3DS eShop.
For the price of 500 yen ($6), players will be able to hop back into the Varia Suit and blast their way through Zebes in pursuit of Mother Brain.
An official American release for Metroid on the Nintendo 3DS has yet to be announced.
