I think you probably could skip it except I'm pretty sure you need it to get screw attack which I know you need to get to a zeta metroid
Amateur Speedrunner, Roleplayer
also I find it kinda funny that the zetas look nothing like how they did in Metroid 2 Return of Samus
Had to sneak the Xenomorph in somewhere

btw has anyone else looked through the concept art. there's one image that to me looks like Samus running pretty fast. so maybe speed booster was planned?
I'd bet money on that

kinda sucks that it got cut. speed booster is one of my favorites. I guess the new trick with spider ball and power bombs is kinda like a shinespark though

How good is the 3D effect? I've been playing on my New 2DS XL so i haven't been able to see it.

I've heard the 3D is actually pretty spot on with all those background going-ons. I always thought it was hella cool when I managed to glimpse something huge wandering around back there.

Also I'm pretty sure that instead of speed boost they added in the time slowdown. Did anyone use that much outside of getting a few items? I never used it for boss battles when I was conserving Aeion for lightning armor.

I guess I'll break out my old 3DS and try it out

I only used it for items and when i'd activate it on accident

just curious but what area do you guys think had the best music?
It was cool how they mixed Super's theme's with M2 stuff but using some Prime SFX is lazy. the game start jingle is ~5 notes long, just bash out another in 5mins.

My favorites were the lower norfair and red soil brinstar remixes

Using Prime SFX was 'lazy' I guess but not an unwanted sound imo. I loved hearing those sound effects again after almost 10 years of not really playing the prime games outside of casually and it was a nice throw back. It's probably to help prepare and get ready since there will be a new prime game hopefully releasing in the next year or so.

I'm guessing it'll come out late 2018 or early 2019
Samus Lauren
That'll be about a year or so lmao.
Nah they probably started development two days before the E3 announcement lol. "Oh the Switch is actually successful, maybe we should make some games"
Samus Lauren
Nintendo has a history of releasing Metroid games mid-November; I think most of the system titles especially the Prime titles are all November releases? So I was guessing that.

Also lol @Serris

I don't mind them using the prime sound effect for getting items. It's definitely better than the sound effect they had in Other M
Samus Lauren
What's Other M again?? I forgot.
It's that one game you still need to play

Nah I totally think it's worth playing at least once

It's a decent game, it's just wrong-headed and bizarre and weird and has some batshit control scheme ideas
Samus Lauren
Since I despise pretty much everything it's about and could write an essay on how much I hate it, I probably wont touch it, not even once.
Samus Lauren
So far, Nintendo appears to be like 'yeah maybe we fucked up?' and I dont really need to acknowledge its existence much if at all in the greater scheme of the storyline. Because Samus has a certain attitude before Other M and after Other M which means theres no heavy changes that effect anything I care about, Samus Returns doesnt foreshadow or even hint towards Other M, and instead hints towards Super Metroid and Fusion so.

Whats other m again???
If I knew enough to write an essay about a game I haven't played, I'd probably play it lol
