Nintendo is often accused of revisiting the same well again and again with its franchises, many of which are over thirty years old at this point. But while Mario and Zelda fans never seem to be lacking for new experiences — in fact, two of this year’s best games are Zelda and Mario titles — Metroid fans have had precious little to get excited about in the last decade or so. Outside of last year’s Federation Force — which was a fun diversion but barely qualified as a Metroid game — there hasn’t been a new title in the series since 2010’s divisive Metroid: Other M. Fortunately, Nintendo brought Metroid back in force at this year’s E3 with the announcement of two new titles: Metroid Prime 4 and Metroid: Samus Returns. With the former title still at least a couple years away from release, Samus Returns now has the unenviable distinction of being the first new Metroid game in years; albeit with the caveat that the game is technically a remake of a 25-year-old game on outdated hardware. Well, after playing Metroid: Samus Returns extensively over the last week, I can safely say that while the game doesn’t push the Metroid franchise forward in any meaningful way, it’s both a lovingly crafted remake and an experience well-worth dusting off your 3DS for.
During its Nintendo Direct video yesterday, Nintendo announced that several of its classic arcade titles will be making their way to the Switch.
Bruce Straley, co-director of The Last of Us and Uncharted 4 — two of the biggest PlayStation exclusives of the last decade — has announced that he will be leaving game development studio Naughty Dog following a year-long sabbatical.
Earlier this year, Nintendo made the shocking (some would say infuriating) decision to discontinue the NES Classic Edition less than six months after its original release, but it appears as if the company has reversed direction and will now ship more of the consoles in 2018.
Destiny 2 was released on consoles yesterday and early buzz for the game seems to be mostly positive. I’m about five or six hours in so far and am enjoying it quite a bit so far (look for my review later next week) but there are definitely problems. One such issue that is causing an uproar in the fan community is the way armor shaders work, as the once permanent-unlocks are now single use consumables. But that’s just one part of the problem.
Rockstar Games has announced that L.A. Noire will be coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One later this year, and that a new VR experience that pulls from the original game is also in the works.
Tsunekazu Ishihara, CEO of The Pokemon Company, has revealed that he originally told Nintendo the Switch would not be a success, but has since realized his mistake.
