In addition to teasing the fourth installment of the Metroid Prime series at E3 on Tuesday, Nintendo also announced that the armored space heroine will be returning to the 3DS in a 2.5-D side-scrolling adventure titled Metroid: Samus Returns.
Developed by MercurySteam, the team that created Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, this new Metroid is a reboot and rethinking of the classic Metroid II from the Game Boy glory days. It's slated for release on Sept. 15th.
