Last week, Nintendo surprised everyone with the announcement of Metroid: Samus Returns, a remake of Metroid II. Here’s another surprise: It’s basically finished. And a fact that’s probably not so surprising: It looks and feels fantastic. At E3 in Los Angeles last Thursday, in a private room within Nintendo’s VIP booth, I sat down with a copy of Metroid: Samus Returns and played through the first 20 minutes of the game alongside three of the people who worked on it: Yoshio Sakamoto, longtime producer of the Metroid franchise; Jose Luis Marquez, a director at MercurySteam, the company behind the game; and Tim O’Leary, a veteran translator and member of Nintendo’s Treehouse. A few things stand out. One is that development on the game is complete, according to O’Leary, although we’ll have to wait until September 15 to play it. Another is that it feels more like a brand new 2D Metroid than it does a remake of a Game Boy game. MercurySteam, a studio previously responsible for the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series (which included Mirror of Fate, a sidescrolling 3DS game directed by Marquez), has done an excellent job making Metroid: Samus Returns smooth and satisfying.

This weekend’s Japanese National Championships proves that competitive Pokémon plays almost like an entirely different game in the franchise’s home country. While every Japanese top eight team had some common picks you might spot at other tournaments around the world, players made plenty of choices that are almost never seen anywhere else. As an example, the grass-type Tsareena, has never placed well… except for this weekend, where it was spotted on the team belonging to Ryouta Ootsubo, the champion who took first place at the tournament. There’s a reason for that, of course. Unlike most players on the planet, who can qualify for the World Championships by collecting championship points at best-of-three tournaments, Japanese players can only qualify by placing highly in an online, best-of-one tournament called the Japan Cup. Then, the top 50 from that tournament are invited to Japanese Nationals, another (mostly) best-of-one tournament, to compete for a chance to skip the first day of Worlds competition. Advertisement While the difference between a best-of-three and a best-of-one may not seem like such a big deal to the uninitiated, it completely changes the way Pokémon is played among the pros.
