Now Super Metroid is entirely different. That game is absolutely spectacular and an all time classic
Saved yourself with that one mate.
To be fair though, of all the 2D Metroids, Return of Samus was always the "weakest", but it always had it's charm and it was the first game in the series I ever played. I re-played it through on the Super Gameboy and completed it for the first time last year and it's still fun, just a bit different from the other games in the series.
Plus it introduced a lot of things that are staples of the series now such as the "Ball shoulder" look (So you could tell the difference between the suits on the monochrome GB), Spiderball and the various Metroid varieties.
I didn't expect any "essential" review scores, but I'm still really looking forward to it and hope to have it polished off in time for the SNES mini so I can dive straight into the "proper" 60hz version of Super Metroid for the first time.

Standard editions do not
Really wish i had been able to obtain the special edition. They would have to sell out so quick.
I may well have to cancel my legendary edition but alternatively I may well sell it on at cost. Depends how this month goes.
What's the release date again?
Edit: 15th. They'll take payment probably the 13th. Yeah nope, there's no way I can afford it. Does anyone want to come to an arrangement before I cancel?
It's the legendary edition and both amiibo preordered directly with the Nintendo UK store.
How much are the Amiibo, would you be willling to part with them seperately?
14.98 each including P&P. That's exactly what Nintendo charged me.
Hold up, I might just be able to hold onto the squishy Metroid I need to run through my finances and find out exactly what I can and cannot afford, but there's no way I can afford a £90 whack on stuff I don't need. So the legendary edition is almost certainly going, and I already have a Samus amiibo thanks to Secret Santa
I mean, it's a squishy metroid. Damn I hate being poor
And part of the reason is I just wasted money on a bailing work experience kid. fml
Another thing I can do is use methods I'd rather not and then sell them on again at cost after a couple weeks to see if things pan out. I really wanted a present to myself for once.
At least that way I can get a cheeky play but the game would be 100% mint.
Forget 40 quid. It's going upwards of £120 which is insane.
Here's a cracker. My card details expire this month and my bank haven't sent me a new card. I've contacted Nintendo and they've said they can't do anything. Seriously? You can't think of or have no way to collect £90 from a customer? Great work!
It's inevitable it will happen for preorders that span such long lengths of time.
My girlfriend has helped me cover the amiibo as she felt bad about it and apparently it was going to be an anniversary present anyway if I hadn't already bought it (no way would she have been able to buy it anywhere though).
So now it's just a case of finding the rest of the money to sell on the legendary edition. It's something I don't want to do, but I bought the game absolutely in genuine interest and I got strawberry floated over.
But I'm probably not going to be able to get this because of a strawberry floating stupid technical failure by Nintendo to provide basic shop management options. Why can't you add a payment method to your account?
Recently when I ordered something a shop just emailed me saying they were unable to take payment because funds were low. I just sorted it the same day. Nearly every proper company ever can take payment over the phone or have some way to update payment information without cancelling your order. Which is what Nintendo have suggested I do.
