We're glad you're interested in being a member here but if you desperately need to discuss Metroid with your internet bretheren, there's a lot of alternatives out there!

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Poll #16 results, and new poll!
Poll 16

Well, no one seems to know what Retro is up to these days but Nintendo and Retro themselves. Let's hope they finally unveil what they've been working on sometime in the near future. Perhaps when the Metroid hype dies down, guys? C'mon, throw us a bone already!

In any case, feel free to participate in our newest poll! #hype

BREAKING: New Samus Edition New 3DSXL just announced!

Own a New Nintendo 3DS XL? Well that's too damn bad because as a Metroid fan, you now have to buy another one. Today, Nintendo dropped this bomb on their social media feeds:

New 3DS XL Samus Edition
New 3DS XL Samus Edition New 3DS XL Samus Edition

All we know is it's coming out on September 15, the same day as Samus returns. No details as far as price go, but it's likely to be $199.99. Also they say "select retailers" so you can assume the usual: Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and Gamestop.

Oh, looks like it'll be out in Japan, too.

And Europe.

New Samus Returns Concept Art
08.06.2017 - CapCom

Nintendo Everything has posted a collection of official concept art from Metroid: Samus Returns. These are some stunning high-res images of Samus and the Metroids. I particularly like the new details on Samus's suit, such as the "bolt holes" or exhaust on her shoulders, feet, and gun. The side aim pose looks pretty much identical to the Varia Suit First 4 Figures model (which was based on Prime). Mercury Steam sure made some great flairs to her design! The Metroid also look gloriously gooey. Arachnus and the mutations are all shown as concept art rather than renders, although it does give you a nice close-and-personal look at the Gamma (from the safety of your computer screen, of course!).

Until next time...

Even more, I will be playing through Metroid Prime Federation Force with the staff today at 12:00pm CST/10:00am PST. Come on out, donate to charity, talk about Metroid, and have a great time!

Watch live video from MetroidHQ on www.twitch.tv

Also, we don't usually celebrate game birthdays too often but today marks the 31st anniversary of Metroid released in Japan. Here's some great artwork by one of our fans, Studio OZKai!
