Europe Getting INSANE Metroid Special Edition…Rest of The World, Not So Much

Take a look at the two images above. One of these things “aint like the other”… Apparently, if you live in Europe, you are getting an INSANE edition for the new Metroid on 3DS if you pick up the special edition. The European version of the game comes with a bevy of goodies while the rest of the world will basically be getting a nifty box and a soundtrack. Don’t get me wrong, a soundtrack and a sporty box is cool in all….Just not “European Special Edition” cool!

Check it out above and let us know if you plan on importing.

Beyond Good and Evil 2: E3 2017 First In-Engine Demo Video

Creative Director Michel Ancel shows a behind the scenes look at the first in-engine demo for Beyond Good and Evil 2 that was shown at E3 2017. The games trailer was something special and we can’t wait to hear more. Here is some more info regarding the game coming from Ubisoft:

Journey to System 3, for the prequel to one of Ubisoft’s most beloved games! Fight alongside unforgettable characters in a stunning new solar system, as you struggle for freedom and the right to determine your own fate among the stars. Play the adventure by yourself or with friends in a vast and seamless online playground.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is the spiritual successor to the cult classic, a prequel that will transport players into a profoundly multicultural world, capturing the spirit of the original with grandiose decors and intense dramas that play out across a vast universe. Through the Space Monkey Program, Ubisoft Montpellier will be developing the game alongside its community of fans.

System 3 has become the center of interstellar trade and colonization in the Milky Way of the 24th century, thanks to the creation of Hybrid slaves. While private enterprises fight over resources and power, the first colonists weave together the rich and diverse spiritual and cultural heritages of Old Earth to give meaning to their existence. In this new era of piracy, we will rise from lowly pirate to legendary captain at the helm of massive star-faring vessels, adventuring alongside crews of colorful characters to fight for freedom and the right to determine our own fate among the stars!
