Metroid: Samus Returns should've been in our laps over a decade ago, but better late than never.
It is never too late for a Metroid game, remake or not.
I don't think anything is 'way overdue for a remake'. I'm glad there's a new-ish sidescrolling Metroid game one the way, but usually I see this sort of thing as gauging the market and it's just going to cost twice as much to make a new game if it passes whatever sales threshold they need once they include the cost of this remake. I think it's clear that a new 2D/2.5D Metroid is something people want and I'd rather they invest the time and money directly into creating a new story for the Metroid universe.
Way overdue since the DS and wii u never had a proper entry.. Almost lost hope for the 3DS as well but its still incoming at least.. 2 Metroids at that.. I would've prefered clean hand drawn sprites compared to polygons, but i know it will be fantastic so ill take what i can get.. Prime 4 i want to see more of since its not retro developing it.. I never completed Metroid 2 because there was no map and the tiny screen.. Now i can enjoy the ultimate version soon..
