All the elements that made Metroid a classic — massive map exploration, a supercharged arsenal, incredible moves, huge bosses — are back, along with all-new features befitting the new generation of gameplay. The game features new heights of super-realism with real-time lighting and particle effects, pyrotechnic weapons and monsters you have to see to believe.
