While Nintendo announced last month that Metroid II: The Return of Samus would be coming to the Virtual Console before the end of the year, it looks gotten very close to happening.

Siliconera reports that the game is coming to the Japanese 3DS Virtual Console tomorrow. Wide release can't be far behind.

If you've never tried this portable chapter in Samus' history before, you're in for a treat...at least I hope so. I haven't played it since I was a kid, actually. I'm just assuming it'll still be just as much fun today.
