The bad news: we haven't seen a Metroid game in almost five years, and that's not looking to change any time soon. The good news: Xeodrifter, which came out earlier this month for PC and 3DS, is a fine enough substitute. Well, it's an OK substitute. A decent enough substitute. It's margarine, basically. It's I Can't Believe It's Not Metroid.
The Samus Amiibo that accidentally shipped with two arm cannons instead of one wasn't just an exercise in maximum firepower. It's also proof that "defective" toys are often the most valuable.
The Amiibo Samus figure Redditor Adam "Adamantium126" Truesdale received from Best Buy might not be able to enjoy a cup of coffee or open manual doors, but who cares when you've got double the firepower?
Ridley to the rescue! In this Super Smash Bros for Wii U clip, one of us uses the famous Metroid villain to our advantage. Ridley only shows up on the Pyrosphere level and attacks everyone until one player smashes him enough to make him an ally. As Nintendo showed, you don't actually control Ridley.
Remember PaulyU, the Wii U owner that documented his troubles with Super Metroid on Miiverse? He was the guy that wondered "y cant metroid crawl." Well, it looks like Pauly got a shout-out in the latest Smash Bros.
Dayshot: The Mother Brain is just as intimidating as a Mayan God on Sita-Cardenas Navas' reimagination of the classic scene from Super Metroid. Finally, an ancient stone carving that might be evidence for extraterrestrial life!
Mr Miyamoto, you recently asked me to ask Kotaku's readers to say which games they'd like you to make for the Wii U. Your question was extremely popular and I got a lot of replies — more than 3000. And a lot of them involved a particular word: Metroid.
If you ever needed an illustration of why Samus' Zero Suit (and now heels) outfit is so stupid — at least when it's so prominent in a game's marketing — look no further.
Dayshot: Metroid's Zero Suit Samus and Samus in her power armour, combined into one amazing fan-art by the talented Wen-JR. A wonderful tribute to the series!
