The kind folks in charge of the Nintendo of America website have uploaded some pictures of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes for us, in promotion for the games full scale E3 debut. As a sequel to one of the best games of the current generation, it doesn't really need it - but hey, who are we to complain?
In this outing, you will again take control of the bounty hunter Samus Aran. This time it seems that Samus is the hunted though, as a 'mysterious entity', and a rather nasty race called the Ing, desperately track her down for reasons currently known. Her travels take her to a planet, vaguely described by Nintendo as 'torn into light and darkness', where she must, as you would expect, build up her suit to slay her would be hunters.
However, the most interesting thing revealed in the current screenshots is this:
