People in Europe will have the option of getting a limited edition of Metroid: Samus Returns. For Switch owners, there's the prospect of Metroid Prime 4 - a series we thought had fallen by the wayside, if we're being honest - while for the 3DS, we'll be gettingMetroid: Samus Returns.
Nintendo of Europe had announced plans to release their own Metroid: Samus Returns Special Edition, but a product image has since revealed that this will be called the Metroid: Samus Returns Legacy Edition.
After years of wondering when Nintendo was going to do something exciting with the Metroid property again, this year's E3 saw the surprise announcement of two games in the franchise.
In any case Liam revisits the story, catches up with his sources from the time and tries to fill in the gaps from those pitches to the game now set to grace our 3DS screens this year. While the version confirmed for North America features a nicely designed soundtrack CD, the European version has a SteelBook case stylised to look like a GameBoy cartridge, a badge, an artbook and more.
