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.

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.

Opinion: Samus is back, but are the fans?

For the first time in thirteen years, Nintendo will be releasing a traditional 2D Metroid title. At the time of writing, we are just two weeks away from Metroid: Samus Returns arriving in North America and Europe. The initial response from the press has been fantastic and it looks like it will be the game that fans of the traditional Metroid games have dreamed of. Nintendo appear to have listened to the Metroid fan community with their criticism of Metroid: Other M and Metroid Prime: Federation Force over the years. Samus is back! Metroid seems to have returned to its roots. So why are some fans so angry and upset? (more…)

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

Metroid Prime: Federation Force AMAA Answers

Metroid Prime: Federation Force came out today in Europe. If you aren’t sure whether or not to purchase the title, we hosted a Ask Me Almost Anything last week on the forums. Any questions you had, we answered them, and though it was a fairly quiet, there were still some interesting questions I didn’t even think about in our review (which you can view here).

You can see all the questions asked by the community after the break!

REVIEW – Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Metroid Prime: Federation Force follows the exploits of a rookie Marine from the Galactic Federation’s Federation Force programme. Initially carrying out research of indigenous creatures, exterminating threats, and collecting data within Bermuda System, soon turns into an intergalactic mission that stakes the very existence of the Federation, and quite possibly life as we know it. This entry in the Metroid series is a first-person, co-operative shooter, which places you, and up to three other friends, in the Federation Force garb.

Though the game has received plenty of backlash in its pre-release, could Metroid Prime: Federation Force actually be an intergalactic adventure to remember, or will it be consumed by the black hole of mediocrity? Find out in our in-depth review… after the break!
