If you needed any extra incentive to pick up the special edition of Metroid: Samus Returns, this might entice you — the game’s cover is reversible, and the flip side bears the cover and blurbs of the original Metroid II: Return of Samus for the Game Boy.


This little feature appears to be for the special edition only, though no official word from Nintendo has come in on the matter. This isn’t the first time a special edition of a Nintendo remake has come with a retro throwback cover — Fire Emblem Echoes had a similar one in its limited edition earlier this year.

Metroid: Samus Returns is due out September 15th.
