Samus Metroid Prime 3 Figma Up For Pre-Order!

A new Metroid figure is up for pre-order. Read more for pictures and price!

While Good Smile has been teasing this figure for months, we finally get a detailed look and a fairly good idea of what this figure can do!  More importantly, if you’re interested in this figure you can now pre-order from Good Smile or any other major Japanese retailer like or Tokyo Otaku Mode!  It doesn’t look like there are any pre-order bonuses for this figure but going off past experience, the previous Samus figure in this armor sold pretty well and got a limited release so it wasn’t long before the price got high.  That isn’t to say the price isn’t already a little on the high side either.  At full price, this figure is just over $70 and that is before you pay for shipping!  Here is a look at the figure and my opinion on it will follow!

“SNES Classic Edition reportedly coming soon and 30 games we want to see!”


“Sheol and Abaddon are never satisfied, and never satisfied are the eyes ofman.”
Proverbs 27:20 [ESV]

…I’m so tired of spending money. But of course, if Nintendo were to ever release a Super Nintendo Classic Edition, I’d try so hard to preorder it. It’d sit pretty right next to my actual SNES. It’s a retrograming collector’s dream! Well, now it’s been reported that such a mini console is indeed coming later this year. Nintendo sure knows how to grab my attention.

After the fiascofailurecatastrophedisasterdebacle mess that was the NES Classic Edition launch, what with it being nearly impossible to find in stores or online, and what with it being price gouged as high as $1,000 (I kid you not), I hope that Nintendo has a much smoother roll out for the SNES Classic. Fingers crossed. Maybe they’ll even make hardware improvements like controllers with longer…

SNES Classic Mini To Come This Christmas Says Eurogamer’s Sources

Eurogamer have stated that their sources close to Nintendo have confirmed that the Big N will follow up the NES Classic Mini with a micro version of the original NES’ successor, the Super Nintendo. The SNES Classic Mini is currently scheduled for release over the Holiday Season of this year and development is well underway according to sources.


After the news of the NES Classic Mini being discontinued last week, it would make sense that the real reason behind it was for Nintendo to put focus on the production of the SNES Classic even though the NES Classic Mini is still quite a popular and sought out item. The success of the NES Classic Mini last year sold millions of units and it likely that Nintendo hopes a repeat success this year by releasing the SNES Mini in time for Christmas.

There are a number of ways that Nintendo can secure success, providing a larger library of games on the Plug & Play system will definitely help sales along with the option to play SNES Carts or more via even via Virtual Console by transferring from the Wii, Wii U or 3DS. Also, if last year’s sales are anything to go by, having more units available will definitely increase the profit margin.

We really hope this turns out to be true. It will be a great novelty item to follow up the NES Classic Mini and build up a collection of Nintendo Micro Consoles. What games would you like to see come to the SNES Classic Mini? Obviously Super Mario World, The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past & Super Metroid are a given but what other titles do you think should come to it? Let us know in the comments below.
