No doubt many of you who own a Nintendo 3DS are desperately looking forward to the upcoming Metroid: Samus Returns which launches on the platform in September. Game Reactor managed to catch up with Enric Alvarez, the head of MercurySteam, who have been charged with developing the game. Alvarez says it has been both an amazing experience and an incredible honour with work alongside the Kyoto-based company.
“It has been an amazing experience and an incredible honor. We learned a lot from the best, Nintendo. These days, we often pinch ourselves just in case we are in a dream.”
“We have been working with the best. I think this explains pretty much everything about how things went during the development. We were very impressed about the devotion, the care and the quality Nintendo treats the product, and we learned a lot from that.”
“Long time fans are going to be extremely pleased. The game is the result of both, on one hand is a Nintendo game, a Metroid game, and on the other hand, I think people will see the MercurySteam influence.”
