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.

All New Metroid Prime: Federation Force Footage

The good guys over at GameXplain got a chance to play Metroid Prime: Federation Force and were nice enough to record this footage. During this months Nintendo Direct Show, the company pulled the curtain off a bit on the 3DS exclusive and described why this game belongs in the Metroid Prime series. Check out the video which includes 7 minutes of gameplay and let us know what you think.


This gorgeous film is an indie film based around the famous Nintendo series Metroid and everyone should check it out. It’s a stunning 12 minute short that will make you wonder why Nintendo hasn’t explored this direction for Samus yet…

It will be interesting to see how long this bad boy stays live (Nintendo likes to take down projects like this).

Check Out Metroid Rendered in Unreal Engine 4

Want to check out Metroid fully rendered in Unreal Engine 4? Check out the video above and be prepared to see something gorgeous. The lighting and the reflections in this tech demo are unreal and I wonder if Nintendo is taking notice of any of these Unreal Engine 4 Nintendo videos. It would be interesting to see Metroid like this and I think that people would go absolutely crazy if this came out.
