This summary of the patent was created by NeoGAF member, Sinxtanx:
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.

Nintendo announced, earlier today, that the price of the Nintendo 2DS handheld is now officially $100. The 2DS allows gamers to play 3DS titles 3D-FREE and is aimed more at the younger crowd. I am eager to see if Nintendo advertises this deal and wonder what will happen during the Holiday season.
The 2DS launched in October 2013 for $130 and by January, Nintendo had sold 2.1 million units. Will this deal make you jump and get a 2DS?
