Best Buy: Metroid Samus Returns Special Edition Up For Pre-order

One game that many of are waiting to play out of most of those announced during this week’s E3 event is Metroid Samus Returns. The Special Edition is now available for pre-order on Best Buy but you had better be quick as this is sure to be snapped up rather quickly. you can pre-order it here.

Includes a sound-selection CD featuring 25 tracks from across the Metroid franchise, and a reversible titlesheet insert for the game case

This intense, side-scrolling action platformer has been completely remade with engaging and immersive 3D visuals and a rich, atmospheric color palette

Classic Metroid II: Return of Samus gameplay is joined by a wealth of new content, including a set of brand new abilities that utilizes a mysterious energy resource called “Aeion”, a powerful melee counterattack, and 360-degree Free Aim Mode

There are plenty of secrets to find-and if you uncover enough of them, you may even start to unravel the mystery of Planet SR388’s past


      1. (Okay. I have to respond to this.) He’s talking about Metroid II: Return of Samus on Virtual Console. The UK special edition of the game comes with a code for it. Remember, we’re on a UK blog so some of the guys here live in Europe. I’m assuming he’s in the UK or some other European country supported by NoE.

        1. In other words, trolling. Got it! (I can only blame myself as I should have known…)

  1. Lat thing I preordered from best buy was the BotW master edition; and someone their decided it was a good idea to put the reserved sticker right on the box. Part of the box design came off when I peeled the sticker off.

    1. I hate when certain places do that bullshit. It’s annoying when it’s done with box art for movies, too. It’s always sad to give up a nice looking box cover for a DVD case because the sticker fucks it up.

      1. One of my biggest pet peeves. However, the trick is to heat it up with a hairdryer or even just a heater. It’ll warm up the sticker and it’ll peel right off, leaving no residue or taking any of the cover off with it. Still peel slowly to be safe, but yeah, just heat it up and it works wonders.

        1. I should try to remember to do that the next time I want to salvage a box or box cover. Or even the plastic on the case itself holding the cover art in place.

  2. Shocker! It’s actually still up! The CD cover art & CD art looks pretty fucking awesome. A keychain & steelbook along with the music CD would be better, though! NoA must REALLY hate giving us a lot of cool physical goodies, though. …..cheap motherfuckers…………………

    1. Honestly, though… I’ll wait for Amazon’s listing for that 20% off preorders bonus for Prime users. (I’ll give the actual game to my son, take the CD for myself, & get the game digitally on my 3DS for me. I can put it right beside my VC of Super Metroid & delete the original Metroid II from my 3DS.) Hopefully we’ll get Zero Mission on New 3DS VC, too, at some point.

        1. And with that, Man of Brisk was never seen or heard from again. D: (Unless that was it of the comment? In which case, there goes my joke.)

        1. Amazon has the game but not the special edition. They seem to have given up on putting up pre-orders for special editions & amiibo. :/ (I can’t blame them, though, since they probably get blamed for the bad stock as much as Nintendo if not even more so by people that don’t understand that some businesses intentionally send out low stock for the purpose of increasing demand.)

        2. I guess I’ll wait another day or two.
