Nintendo, in it’s E3 2015 Direct, showed off two Metroid games after having not released a title in the series since Metroid: Other M for the Wii in 2010. It should have been a glorious, beautiful return to form – bringing a fan favourite franchise back from the dead to give new life to Samus’s adventures through pirate infested space – but instead it was met with a Change.org petition to cancel the games.Do I agree with this reaction? Not necessarily, but I can definitely see where it’s coming from. What was once an isolating, terrifying and thought-provoking quest into deep space has been strapped on to a multiplayer shoot-em-up, and a 3v3 space soccer simulator. Of course, we’ve seen but a few seconds of each game, and it isn’t fair to completely write them off without first at least playing them – but let’s think about them for a second.
