Brave the hostile terrain of an alien planet teeming with vicious life forms as legendary bounty hunter Samus Aran. Her mission? Terminate the Metroid menace in this masterful reimagining of her 1991 Game Boy adventure. Samus Aran's arsenal has been enhanced with new moves and abilities that are sure to help her face the deadly surprises that await. This intense, side-scrolling action platformer is a great entry point into the Metroid franchise and perfect for returning fans as well, and it's available only on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

@RalNoblesse well, there were a couple reasons for poor sales: the 3ds was on a sharp decline when this game released because of the switch, the metroid series hadn't gotten a main entry in over 10 years, and the series doesn't usually sell well in japan regardless.

Noooo this is one of the best "2D" Metroids ever!

Its just less (cinematic-)dramatic than other 2D Metroids, but converts the true / oldschool feeling better than any (side of the original NES version)

Must have been "too frustrating"? for some ... otherwise can not explain those low numbers (and the "boom" of very pretty and cheap Castleroids probably stole the show a bit too

Nintendo schould launch this in Switch as a download too (if not already happend), but at a fair price too

These sales are a bit sad! It is a game that should have come out in Switch.

Are those sales accurate? If so then I'm sad

250k in 2 weeks, for comparison sake Federation Force sold less than 25k in that period of time, so at least nintendo is getting the message that you can sell 10 times better if you do a Metroid people actually wants. It seems to be holding on well in Europe and decently in NA, let's hope it keeps holding on for a while.
