In what I found to be a stunning moment, Nintendo did announce a 2D classic Metroid game today after their Nintendo Spotlight concluded. The game, officially deemed “Metroid: Samus Returns” is coming to 3DS on September 15th, and is a modern re-imagining of the gameboy’s Super Metroid 2. FromMercuryStream, the makers of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, expect brand new visuals, 3D enabled, as well as free aim and new abilities such as teleportation/fast-travel.

A special edition of the game was also announced and will include the game + the soundtrack.
