Metroid: Samus Returns is coming to Nintendo 3DS Sept. 15.

The surprise title will meld the classic side-scrolling shooter action of the Game Boy’s monochrome Metroid II: Return of Samus with the handheld system’s immersive 3-D visuals and rich colors.

It’s essentially a remake of Metroid II, only an official one this time.

There will, of course, be compatible amiibo.

And a special edition!

But that’s not all!

Metroid Prime 4 is officially in development for the Switch console.

By whom and for when is still yet to be announced.

Just go ahead and loop that atmospheric audio all day. I know I will.
