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.
