Metroid: Samus Returns

Spanish site HobbyConsolas was recently about to speak with Nintendo’s Yoshio Sakamoto. Sakamoto had a bunch to say about last year’s Samus Returns, including its development, how the final boss came to be, and more. He also comments on why there was never a Metroid on DS and why it took so long for a 3DS entry, Switch, and a few other topics.

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. He was also asked about possible interest in an animated series / movie, though Sakamoto didn’t have much to say here.
