NS Preview – Metroid: Samus Returns

This year’s E3 event proved to be quite a success for Samus Aran. With two games announced – one for each of Nintendo’s premier consoles – she is back in the fold after her absence from Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Technically she wasn’t absent, but the player didn’t control Samus, nor should she have been … Continue reading
