The Metroid: Samus Returns Artbook is an art book that is packaged with the Legacy Edition of Metroid: Samus Returns, a special edition of the game exclusive to Europe. The book is 40 pages long, and is "loaded with design goodness from the team behind the game, MercurySteam". It is the third art booklet for a game in the Metroid series, after the Metroid Prime Trilogy art booklet and Metroid: Other M Art Folio.
The book is two-sided; the front half of the book contains concept artwork from Samus Returns, while the reverse contains artwork from Metroid II. Some of the Samus Returns art can be unlocked ingame using amiibo, but it does contain some exclusive pieces, such as one of Zero Suit Samus.
