Metroid II: Return of Samus Returns On 3DS Virtual Console In Japan This Week


A Nintendo of Europe release list from August revealed that Metroid II: Return of Samus would be arriving on the 3DS Virtual Console sometime before the end of the year. It turns out Japan is getting the game this week.


While Nintendo’s eShop website hasn’t been updated to mention the upcoming release yet, Nintendo World Report found the game, along with its price and release date, by performing a search on the eShop itself.


Metroid II will release in Japan on September 28th for 400 yen (about $5).
