    Do you have to have a GBA to unlock NES metroid? I hope not, that'll suck in a MAJOR way.

    Nice! Might have to actually buy one of those cables now... Wonder if there's any other improvements to the original besides the saving system?

    They'll probably fix some of the slowdown issues the original had, and I wouldn't be surprised if they spruce up the graphics a little by making them higher resolution or something, but I think the main gameplay will be the same.

    Thats sounds pretty stupid to me. Why couldn't they just give the original metroid as a bonus anyway. Whats the point of having to connect it to a Gameboy?

    You can try the game right now if you're "on the fence." A playable demo is out at the gamestores and the game is a BLAST.

    Yeah I stopped by best buy a few days ago and they didn't have the playable demo yet, still had the old one with playable mario and starfox. I'll have to check again later.

    Nice! [​IMG] It's great to hear that the jumping elements of the past Metroid games are present and actually do work in the first person perspective. The 18th is going to take an eternity to get here. [​IMG]
