Beautiful art from Metroid: Samus Returns’ opening

Posted on August 19, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, Images

Metroid: Samus Returns doesn’t have a massive amount of story, which fans would probably agree is a good thing. However, Nintendo and MercurySteam did expand upon things a bit more compared to the original Game Boy game.

When you first start Samus Returns, you’ll be treated to an opening with lovely art recapping the first Metroid game. The images maintain the look of a comic book, and may look even better when viewed in stereoscopic 3D. Take a look at some images snapped from Metroid: Samus Returns’ opening below.

      He’s trying to part the Metroid fans and AM2R fans.

      • Kenneth Kalousek

        Aren’t AM2R fans Metroid fans? I know i’m both.

      • Velen (Not WoW)

        AM2R fans are also Metroid fans. :

    Will Samus talk? One of the things that I liked about Other M is that she has a voice and a personality, eventhough the story and character were kinda a let down

    • KnightWonder

      No. She’s completely silent.

  • Why couldn’t this game have a gameplay art style similar to these pictures? I mean, don’t get me wrong. The game looks great, but with an art style like this it would have looked much better.

      Because it’s running on 3DS

      • 3DS can’t run hand-drawn sprites or sprites that simulate hand-drawn art style? I think it can.

          You want a 2D sprite Metroid in 2017?

          • Beautifully hand-drawn-looking art style sprite? Absolutely. It works for Rayman, Shantae, Ducktales, Cuphead, Wario. I don’t see why it wouldn’t work for Metroid.

    Looks like Shinkiro’s art

    Please let the theme from Super Metroid and Metroid Prime’s opening play during this prologue

    Amazing how they made that hellish battle look ten times worse.

    “So um yeah, we need you to fight that giant eyeball brain thing, which shoots light beams by the way, while numerous metroids and laser turrets assault you endlessly.

    Oh, almost forgot the most important part, you’ll have to do so while stranded on a floating circular tube as large as a handkerchief box, with lava underneath.
    Briefing over, good luck Samus”
