NintyBeats – Metroid 34

This month marks thirty-four years since the release of Metroid on the Famicom Disk System in Japan. Since that historic date, the world has been treated to a variety of traditional side-scrolling and first-person adventure games starring the incredible intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran.

For this months NintyBeats, I am delighted to detail my top five favourite Metroid themes! It wasn’t an easy choice, as the music of Metroid has been very inspiring to me over the years. Please check them out below!

Predicting Nintendo @ E3 2019

Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct is only a few days away, and the hype train is already chugging along. It’s the perfect time to build up our expectations with some pipe dream predictions (only for them to be busted on Tuesday), so that’s what we’re going to do. We’ve gone around asking our fabulous writers, as well as the equally lovely Nintendo community asking for their predictions for Tuesday, as well as for the rest of this year’s E3!

Check out their marvellous predictions after the break!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

Five remakes we want for the Nintendo Switch

It’s no secret that the Nintendo Switch has seen various remakes in it’s first 16 months on the market. Most of the remakes happened to be of Wii U games, which brought some of the consoles best games to those who never owned a Wii U. It got me thinking however, what other games would (re)make a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch, not just Wii U games, but games from other Nintendo consoles!

Check out the top five Nintendo games we want remade for the Nintendo Switch after the break.

FALSE – Metroid Prime 2 for Nintendo Switch?

UPDATE – The listing has updated from Metroid Prime 2 to Metroid Prime 4 so, as expected, the listing was clearly a mistake, though why they mocked up a Prime 2 tentative box shot is beyond me. I’ve attached a screenshot of the previous listing after the break

Something very interesting has popped up while I was looking for pre-orders for Metroid: Samus Returns Special Edition. It seems like the UK retailer, ShopTo, has Metroid Prime 2 listed for preorder on the Nintendo Switch.

It is most likely some sort of error, perhaps mistaken for the reveal of Metroid Prime 4. However, considering the timing, I wouldn’t be too surprised if previous Prime games were brought over to the Switch. Not only would it serve as Metroid filler between now and the release of Prime 4, but seeing how the Trilogy compilation was released eight years ago, it would make sense to bring them to the Switch for those who never played it on the Wii, or the Wii U Virtual Console.

Most likely a mistake, though it still could be a possibility. I will update this post if any more information surfaces
