Hobby Consolas is a print and digital-based gaming magazine published in Spain. It is one of two Spanish magazines, alongside Games Tribune, to have covered the Madrid-developed Metroid: Samus Returns. It conducted interviews with Nintendo EPD producer Yoshio Sakamoto and senior MercurySteam producers Rafael Martínez in issue 314. Notably, the cover depicts a possibly exclusive render of Samus Aran, which is directly based on one of her classic renders from Metroid II: Return of Samus (included in the in-game Gallery and Europe-exclusive artbook). The interviews (in Spanish) can be read here.
