You could switch the upgrade system from mechanical upgrades to organic ones. Let Samus gain new powers by taking them from creatures. Basically, turn her into the Demi-Fiend.

"Huh, since it was a highly secret lab it turns out I destroyed all records of the event in the explosion so no one has any reason to come after me." -Samus's personal log

Also more seriously: Glancing at the script again, it seems the Federation was just withholding item upgrades so Samus wouldn't halt their secret program. The writers are free to say the Federation didn't want Samus to die, especially now that it's too late to do anything about what happened.

Or they could just stick with the Fusion Suit?

Like, that would be fine, actually. Cover can just be her helmet or not even have Samus on it.

They could also finally ditch all the ability cruft from super and give her new abilities so the game's interesting, since they missed that chance with Fusion anyway.

It's pretty reasonable to be hesitant to try to sell a game with shooting humans that is a sequel to games that mostly involve shooting monstrous aliens.

Looks like we're getting Super Mario Bros. 2 and Kirby's Adventure on NESflix this month. And probably another mystery SP game, I'd wager.

Once again, Famicom is getting 3 games and NES is getting 2, but getting Famicom Online running is super easy. Tecmo's sumo game Tsuppari Ōzumō is the 3rd title, I had a lot of fun button mashing with that one in the days of NESticle.

Man, I can't believe these classics are coming to Switch. That's amazing.

I may actually progress in one of those games if the controls aren't terrible. I have them on gog and boot one up every few years but I inevitably lose interest pretty quickly. I don't have a great set-up for mouse and keyboard games.

Already got most of these on Google Play, but I'm really excited to see them on consoles all the same.

Hope the Switch version will keep the touch UI as an option for handheld play. And that the console versions support keyboard and mouse; no good excuse not to now that Xbone's finally got support for those.

So, any bets on the number of 3DS games getting announced tomorrow? Most betting houses are backing "None" and "Zero".

Maybe a 2 second mention that Persona Q2 is coming out and that's probably it.

Oops, I missed all of the Metroid speculation! Hey, here's an idea if they're going open-world: let the player swap between the Zero suit and the Power Armor. Zero suit is fast with low attack speed, and allows players to get into higher and smaller areas, Power Armor is strong and has progress key items but decreases movement. As Samus explores, she unlocks beacons where her armor can be transferred to her in the field. So the loop becomes unlocking beacons with Zero suit exploration, then blasting away stronger baddies and opening doors with the power suit.

Obvious solution: put them all in giant robots!

Or, um... steamshovels with face-covering control panels. I guess.

The announcement says it's on Switch titles, so I would agree that there's likely to be none.

Oh yeah, maybe they'll actually announce anything about DQB2. I didn't care much for the demo, but maybe the full game is better?

My dark horses are port announcements for #FE and Xenoblade Chronicles X, and an announcement of Style Savvy Switch.

An open world main title Metroid sounds dreadful. We don't need yet another title going open world, particularly one whose strengths come from small, well designed spaces. Create another franchise for that, I want a return to Prime 1. Make it claustrophobic and creepy as possible, please.

Builders 2
DQXIS
Switch ports of older games
New DQ Monsters game
Erdrick for Smash

I would love a Style Savvy that goes more into the idol fashion side that Styling Star had.

And also let me do men's fashion as well, please.

Xenoblade Chronicles X on Switch would definitely be a draw, but I hope that Nintendo and Monolith don't forget about the original game, either. Sure would be nice to have a portable remaster of XC1 that actually looks and runs better.

Also I would totally be all for Switch remasters of the 3DS remakes of the Nintendo 64 Zeldas. And Star Fox 64's remake. And Kid Icarus: Uprising. Hell, just port everything from 3DS to Switch, I'd be cool with that. Dragon Quest VII, Fantasy Life, Legend of Legacy, The Alliance Alive, the Bravely Defaults for the people who like those...
