Sakamoto on why Metroid: Samus Returns was made for 3DS instead of Switch, remaking Metroid II
Game Rant has published its full interview with Metroid co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto. Sakamoto touched on why 3DS was chosen as the platform for Metroid: Samus Returns on 3DS, as well as why Metroid II was fit for a remake.

Metroid: Samus Returns sold roughly 30,000 copies in its first week in Japan. That may not seem like a lot, but it doesn’t tell the full story.
Dengeki reports that Metroid: Samus Returns sold through 70 percent of its initial shipment. That number gives us an indication that Nintendo was smart with the amount of copies it sent out to retailers.
Metroid has never been a huge seller in Japan. However, Samus Returns did pretty well all things considered. Here’s how it stacks up to other entries in the series:

[Review] Metroid: Samus Returns
Posted on 1 month ago by Dennis(@LyonHart_) in 3DS, 3DS eShop, Reviews | 11 Comments | 0 Likes
Release date: September 15, 2017
Developer: MercurySteam / Nintendo
Samus Aran has a long history with the video games and is easily one of the most iconic and recognizable characters of all time. But unfortunately, the famous bounty hunter along with the Metroid series itself have been mostly dormant for quite a while. However, now Samus is back, and it feels incredible to have her at the forefront once again. Even if Metroid: Samus Returns is just a remake and not a brand new title, beggars can’t be choosers, and I can promise that everything the game has to offer touches base with everything we’ve wanted from a classic Metroid title for a long time while remaining fresh and feeling contemporary in its mechanics, gameplay, progression, and world.
