Good, but I'm wondering will Nintendo finally replace the 3DS by 2019 with a small Mini Switch because it's a guarantee that Metroid 5 will be on the Switch but since the Switch is for the older audience they need to make a smaller Switch for the younger audience.

Kimishima: "As for your question on the Nintendo 3DS, we believe it can coexist with Nintendo Switch for the time being. Nintendo 3DS is a different system from Nintendo Switch in terms of its shape, weight, price and the types and number of available software titles. From this perspective, I believe parents will opt to choose Nintendo 3DS as their children?s first video game system. So we recognize that Nintendo 3DS as a portable game device meets different needs and fits different markets than Nintendo Switch, and we will keep this recognition in mind as we consider the future of our dedicated portable video game business."

http://nintendoeverything.com/kimishima-and-takahashi-on-whether-the-3ds-and-switch-can-coexist/

Next year is the last year for the 3DS as Nintendo will make a smaller Switch to fulfill the niche left behind from the 3DS since they still believe there is a market there.

Nope, Metroid 5 will definitely be coming to the Switch and they will have a smaller version of the Switch to take the 3DS's place. Nintendo will finally have a console and a handheld sharing the same library with devs having to take the time to make to separate versions. The same strategy Microsoft is using with the Xbox One X and Windows 10 PC. The Switch is truly Nintendo's future.

This means that there is still a market for portable handheld devices for Nintendo. If they don't have something to take the 3DS's place then there will no longer be a market there when the Nintendo Switch is considered a home console. So Nintendo will make a smaller Switch for a younger audience to compensate. It will be able to play all of the Switch games but will not be able to dock or have detachable joycons. Nintendo are fucking geniuses. Literally using the same strategy Microsoft is doing with the Xbox One X and Windows 10 PC.

I don't recall having to go back around the entire world in any Super game to get to the end like I did in the Prime games, Prime 2 is the worst about it because you can't get most of them until you get the last upgrade in the damn game. You'd think they would've learned that those aren't fun but they made it even worse than it was in the first game.

When I kill Ridley in Super Metroid I can go straight to Tourian to end the game, when I get the Power Bombs in ZM I can go straight to Ridley and end the game, when I fight off the SA-X I can go straight to my ship and end the game in Fusion.

When I get the Phazon Suit in Prime I cannot go straight to the Impact Crater to the end the game, I need to go back and collect all of the artifacts which are scattered throughout the world. That is a massive pace killer.

I would say it's ok at best. Your enjoyment will vary depending on if you have people to play it with. I played the first like 3 missions with a friend and it wasn't terrible but it wasn't very good either. I do know for sure reception of the game would've been better if it had been delayed until SR and Prime were at least announced, even better if they launched it inbetween SR and Prime as a buffer inbetween the two.

2D metroid is a bad series, the only thing going for it is that the concept of exploring a game world getting powerups is inherantly satisfying but there''s now roughly 10 billion games that have aped this style after nintendo stopped making them for years that make the older games look like shit, with samus returns being too tied into crappy Metroid Staples that were never actually good to stand out from its own coopycats

prime at least pushed visuals/first person storytelling really far forward with the first two games that hasn't really been met by anything since. Nintendo keeps taking so long between making new 2D metroid games for the same reason people aren't asking for a new donkey kong arcade sequel.

You're not wrong. The entire game feels half baked really. I'd hate to be one of those faggots who's always like "the game would be better on the switch!" but it really would've benefited from having an additional stick to aim with, and with less clunky controls the game could've had better enemy AI.

don't act like 2D metroid doesn't have horrible combat, doors that require you to swap items for no reason constantly or "bomb every wall to 100% the game"

you listed a bunch of flaws about the gameplay when I didn't defend the gameplay at all, just the visuals. Prime has SOMETHING going for it that would give someone a reason to go back to it with the visuals and the "lore" from scanning. super metroid is outdone by half a dozen indie games (inb4 you demand a list)

Man if you don't think Super Metroid still looks great you're a giant faggot. I would even go as far to argue that Super Metroid has aged better than Prime in terms of graphics.

>>393226452
When 2D Metroid gives those doors you only need to open them with those items once, not every fucking time you run into the same fucking door like in Prime. 2D Metroid games have fast combat that can be finished in a second and I actually enjoy exploring in the 2D. Also, Super, Fusion, Zero Mission, and Samus Returns are visually beautiful even if Samus Returns is on an old ass 3DS.
>>
>>393226563
super metroid is a terrible game with jank controls, extremely unsatisfying shooting, shitty muted music and sound a lot of SNES games had to further make everything uninteresting, and the same "bomb random walls or find the arbitrary colored door your new weapon opens to progress" shit from the NES metroid (which would be fine if the movement felt good and the shooting felt good but they absolutely do not)

the only fun parts of super metroid are some of the spectacle in the boss fights, the general endorphin rush from finding hidden shit, using the speed booster (an item every other metroid-style game has an equivalent to) and playing around with the sequence break stuff and other glitches

in terms of actual gameplay it's heavily flawed and didn't catch on beyond a cult but very vocal fanbase for a reason.

You're fucking retarded and have no taste. I grew up playing Sega and never got to play Super Metroid until around 2007 and I was floored by how good it was. The only clunky part about the controls is using Y and Select to cycle weapons. Everything else about the game is incredible, especially when compared to other games at the time which either had simpler mechanics, controls, or level design than the labyrinth of Super Metroid.
>>
>>393227165
Boy now that's one hell of a hot take you have there my friend. Let's break it down bit by bit

>jank controls
Super Metroid has entirely customizable controls so I don't exactly know what you mean. If you're referring to the jump physics which are way more loose than the GBA titles than yes you'd have a point there, but that's a matter of opinion. I prefer the floaty jump physics has over the later titles but I can see why other people do not.

>shitty muted music
It varies really. Some areas have really bombastic themes like Upper Brinstar and Lower Norfair. Then you have more muted themes like Maridia and Lower Brinstar. Now this is my personal opinion but I like the more quiet songs, makes the area feel more lonely and reinforces the isolated atmosphere the game has.

>and the same bomb random walls
There are some bullshit instances of this in Super I agree. The worst offender being the super missile block in the elevator room outside of Kraid for instance. The game does give you a hint though if you look at the map and you'll see that there is something to the right of the elevator, but that isn't good enough really. Luckily the game introduces super bombs and the X-ray visor to make bombing every tile unnecessary once you obtain them. Hell you could just not bomb every tile and backtrack and use those tools if you want to ensure you did not miss any optional pickup.

>or find the arbitrary colored door your new weapon opens to progress
The entire point of the game is finding the tools you need to progress. There is nothing wrong with locking doors behind certain tools as it allows the devs to lock later areas off from the player. It is a genre staple of being blocked off by an obstacle, exploring to find the tool you need to overcome the obstacle and then using that tool to overcome it.

That's the absolute dumbest thing I've ever read on this site easy. While Metroid is the granddaddy of the Metroidvania genre, Super Metroid took the concepts from Metroid refined them in such a way it became the template for just about every other Metroidvania out there. To say it didn't catch on is objectively false. I don't speak for everyone but I'm pretty sure most people understand and appreciate Super Metroid as the title that really cemented the series as it is today.

>>393229186
If super metroid caught on why did it take nintendo nearly a decade to make another metroid game? fusion was clearly trying to be different from the metroid 1/2/super formula and everything afterwards besides zero mission was an entirely different style of game altogether.

Being popular among western gaming websites =/= popular as a whole

Of course SoTN coined the phrase because it was the first Castlevania to mimic the style of Metroid. Doesn't change the fact that the original Metroid created the genre and Super refined it. Before they were just Metroid games yes, but now they are all a part of the Metroidvania genre as the progenitors.
>>
>>393229598
If Super didn't catch on how do we have the entire Metroidvania genre? Where do you think Retro looked for inspiration for the Prime games? Where do you think Konami looked for inspiration when making SotN? Super Metroid is THE quintessential Metroidvania. Without it the genre as it exists today would not be.
>>
>>393229670
>>393230032
Metroidvania being used as the name of the genre is fucking retarded. Castlevania did not contribute any of the factors that make a game a "Metroidvania", the term was originally used to describe the post SoTN Castlevania titles that had borrowed the Metroid structure. There's nothing "Vania" about games like Guacamelee, Hollow Knight, etc, they should just be called Metroid-likes or exploration platformers.

>>393230368
>Castlevania did not contribute any of the factors that make a game a "Metroidvania"
metroid doesn't have RPG elements and your commands are a lot more simplistic and amount to "shoot gun, jump, swap what gun you shoot with, other"

before castlevania grand majority of games in this style were shooting games and not melee games too, but that's more subjective
>>

attributing placing RPG elements into a metroid esque game to castlevania is retarded. Every genre has shoehorned RPG elements nowadays.
