Here's a quick update for you fans of classic Nintendo games. While the company continues to make good on its promise to release a regular flow of downloadable games to the online eShop, the bulk of the selection so far has left some people wanting. This Thursday's release ought to please a few though: Metroid 2: The Return of Samus.
Nintendo confirms the news in a morning press release, revealing that the Game Boy classic will be coming in its original 2D form. No 3D Classics treatment for this one. The press update makes a point of mentioning that Metroid 2 "lays the foundation for the smash hit Super Metroid." Hopefully it also lays the foundation for that SNES game's eShop release as well.
