The developers behind Castlevania: Lords of Shadow are remaking Metroid II for 3DS.

Following the Spotlight event, Nintendo showed off the game titled, Metroid: Samus Returns, which uses 3D models but plays in a 2D setting. The game is being developed by MercurySteam, known for the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow games. The 3DS Lords of Shadow game had some Metroid trappings, making the studio a good fit.

The game will have new content compared to the original release of Metroid II, including new abilities. The game releases September 15.
