The Metroid series is so littered with prequels and sequels that it's hard to tell where exactly Metroid II: Return of Samus
sits in the story. It definitely
takes place after the original Metroid
, if that helps. The adventure sees the intergalactic bounty hunter head to the Metroid home world, SR388; her only mission to eradicate every last one of those energy-sapping creatures. The GameBoy classic is out today on the 3DS eShop.
Also up for grabs on both the eShop and DSiWare is the tower defense(ish) title Come On! Heroes
, while WiiWare gets the fishing title Big Bass Arcade
