Nintendo has updated their official Youtube channel with an overview trailer for Metroid: Samus Returns. The latest trailer features the run down of the game mechanics of the game.
The main game mechanics include:
- Morph Ball
- Ice Beam
- Grapple Beam
- Melee Counter
Metroid: Samus Returns will also introduce new abilities for Samus Aran called the Aeion Abilities. While these abilities grant Samus great power they use up the Aeion energy meter so players must use them wisely.
The abilities include:
- Scan Pulse: Scan environments for hidden paths
- Lightning Armor: Generates a protective force-field
- Beam Burst: Enhances cannon’s firing rate
- Phase Drift: Slows down time
Metroid: Samus Returns will launch for the Nintendo 3DS on September 15.
