Looks like the special edition is still up on gstop: http://m.gamestop.com/product/nin...

Legacy has a bunch of stuff. Not just game and soundtrack. I'm pretty sure it's Europe only, though.

Esit: Surely the GS version at least has soundtrack... that keychain is cool, though. Scalpers here I come.

Ok, so I know I'm about to get 1,000 "Super Lame" points but I some how just now found out about this game. It looks amazing, it's a remake of my favorite Metroid game and although I'm quite late to the party, I am super hyped about this.

So... do you guys think the NA SE version is going to be "very collectible". I ask because I actually want the content of the SE but as a collector, well... I like to keep everything super-minty/perfect and new!

I'm debating on buying one copy vs. two.

Oblig video for context. Most appropriate at 0:33:

I doubt ours will become much since it's just a soundtrack. The European version, though? Man... that will be something.

And since my post about this may have gotten missed because it was the last post on the page... I would love to get a European Legacy edition. Anyone with a spare wanting to help someone out, please let me know.

Holy shit I'm so pumped for this game. 13 more days it's so surreal! They nailed Samus's character.

Game looks great and it'll be a nice bridge between Splatoon 2 and Mario. Not interested in the SE or the 3DS though... well, I just don't need them, but they are nice. I wish the Metroid amiibo was sold separately. I will still likely pick up the two pack if it's available in store on release day.

So people do think it looks good? Well, that's good, I guess. I have low expectations but I would like for it to be good. Looks kind of bad from what I've seen so far. Hopefully, I'm proven wrong.

But I'm glad they've nailed Samus' character of having no character.

Only thing I'm not a fan of is the character graphics, but other than that looks good to me. I try not to watch too much so I don't spoil anything. Seems like most things are there for a good Metroid game though. Secrets, relatively large map, good upgrades, counter move, etc.

Cannot wait for this game. I am just as hyped for this as I am for Mario Odyssey which is pretty huge. I enjoy the Metroid Prime games and all but 2D Metroid is where it's at!

Did anyone happen to get a Samus 3DS that wants to sell or trade?

Yeah... my wife doesn't want me to spend any money though, ha. Hoping I might be able to pawn of an expensive game or something.

Gotcha, I ordered one for myself and was on the fence about cancelling it, but I want to retire my Majora's Mask 3DS before it gets more worn out so I think I'm gonna keep it.

I have a feeling this one won't sell out too fast. I think along with the New 2DS release, a lot of people already owning a 3DS, and the fact that the 3DS is on the way out, there are gonna be a lot of unsold inventory. But who really knows when it comes to Nintendo products...

The real problem is I was unaware this thing was coming out and bought the damn New 2DS. My wife said if I want this one I should sell the 2DS but I told her I can't get $200 off a used 2DS.   Had I known and waited, dropping the $200 wouldn't be a big deal... but at this point I'm rebuying a console I just bought which is her problem with it. Suuucks.

Edit:  And I just lost a bid for the Legacy edition on ebay.  Even though my highest bid was higher than the winning bid and for some reason my bids disappeared from the bid history.

Is there a difference in the legacy editions based on the country? I see some from Russia that are cheaper but not sure if different from the other ones out there. Everyone selling them from Russia seems to have multiples too.

There is no difference as far as I know. I guess one Russian scalper got lucky. Or they're a scammer.

I'll remain cautious until it's in my hands. I've unfortunately had a few things spoiled for me, though.

People are already bidding on LEs?! I thought it would only get released on the 15th...
Either way I'll be grabbing my preordered Legacy Edition on the 15th. Can't wait to get it, but it must suck for you guys on that side of the pond. I also need to play the original I bought in Japan this summer.

I preorder ed the American special edition and didn't see the euro one, damn is that bad ass!!! I didn't get a chance to preorder the amiibo pack but I have to have it, even if it involves me paying double for it.

I have everything released in the US preordered. GS is throwing in an 8-bit Samus keychain so glad about that. Bummed about the Legacy edition though.

Yeah, I've bought the 3DS, U.S. special edition and the amiibos. I'll get the Legacy Edition at some point... the price point just sucks.

Vectrex, what was the retail for that? I haven't seen it anywhere.
