During E3, Nintendo had slipped in a surprise announcement of a remake of Metroid II releasing on the 3DS. This remastered title is none other than Metroid: Samus Returns. Re-explore SR388 in a completely overhauled world full of new content. Master the new melee attack, discover new abilities and destroy the metroids once-and-for-all. Be sure to purchase this title on your Nintendo 3DS starting tomorrow to show Nintendo we need more 2-D Metroid games! In case you need some Minecraft on the go, Minecraft: New Nintendo 3DS Edition is available today along with Percy’s Predicament Deluxe. For those of you that are looking for new content on the Wii U, then be sure to check out EARTHLOCK: Festival of Magic and Vigilante.
If you are looking to enjoy a fun game of basketball on your Switch, then 2K Sports has you covered.
