Nintendo to launch Metroid Reboot on 15th september

Nearly three decades since the original Metroid launched on the NES, Nintendo is all set to release a 2D reboot of the action platformer. The reboot, aptly named Metroid: Samus Returns, is headed to the Nintendo 3DS and will be launched on 15th September.

Metroid: Samus Returns will feature the protagonist from Metroid II, Samus Aran, who travels to SR388, the home planet of the Metroids, in order to destroy the parasitic monsters. The game starts off with a limited arsenal of weapons and abilities for the protagonist, with new items being added as the player progresses.

Nintendo is expected to release the game on other platforms like Android, but the company has revealed no information regarding the matter yet.
