With long waits come high expectations, and both of those phrases could be used to describe Nintendo's sci-fi franchises in the 2010s. Star Fox Zero received some mixed opinions when it released on the Wii U last year. The F-Zero series is still awaiting its long-overdue sequel. That leaves Metroid, the fan demand for which has at least been partly satiated with the announcement of Metroid Prime 4 on Nintendo Switch and the release of Metroid: Samus Returns for the Nintendo 3DS. Thankfully, the latter is an amazing game and perhaps one of the best on Nintendo's current handheld-exclusive system. As far as returns to form play out, they do not get much better than this.
