MercurySteam was excited to announce a collaboration with Nintendo on the upcoming Metroid: Samus Returns for the Nintendo 3DS.
Enric Alvarez, Head of Studio at MercurySteam, stated, “Metroid is one of the most recognized Nintendo franchises and we are so honoured to collaborate with them on the latest game in the saga of space-faring bounty hunter Samus Aran. Our collaboration with Nintendo will give gamers around the world the chance to play this fantastic adventure in a completely new way not seen before.”
“The development of this Metroid game with MercurySteam has gone very smoothly and more than anything, it has been very exciting,” Yoshio Sakamoto, senior officer of Nintendo’s Entertainment Planning and Development Department, and the producer of the overall Metroid franchise, stated. “Metroid: Samus Returns is based on the GameBoy classic Metroid II: Return of Samus, and we are very confident that this collaboration with MercurySteam is the reason we have been able to successfully pull together various features like actions never seen before in the Metroid series, a stunning recreation of the planet SR388, and classical Metroid gameplay elements into a single powerful package.”
Those interested in the game only have to wait for September 15, 2017 to check it out.
