Metroid II remake is done! Your pants will never be the same again (UPDATE)


6:23 PM on 10.21.2008



If you work for Nintendo, please cover your eyes and look away. This blog post is not for you.

About seven months back I posted an early trailer for a fan remake of Game Boy classic Metroid II: Return of Samus. Needless to say, I loved what I saw. I think I even threw in a few more adjectives that start with “a” and end in “mazing” than usual.

Well, word from creator DoctorM64’s progress blog is that the game -- dramatically entitled Metroid: Confrontation -- is finally finished! You can download the polished final product right here. Even if you are only a self-proclaimed mild fan of the early 2D Metroids (blasphemy!) you really have to check this remake out. The graphics are rendered in a beautiful Super Metroid style and the smooth gameplay feels exactly like something stamped with the Nintendo seal of approval (and, again, Nintendo employees: look away! THERE IS NOTHING COPYRIGHT INFRINGING TO SEE HERE!).

Put down that fan translation of Mother 3 for just a second to check Metroid: Confrontation out. You won’t be disappointed. In fact, you may throw out a few “amazing”s of your own.

[UPDATE: So, it looks like Metroid: Confrontation is an extended tech demo for another game, not the actual Metroid II remake. Although both games look almost identical, the actual Metroid II remake is still being worked on (but almost finished!). How confusing! The demo is still pretty great, though, so check it out. FAIL! The game isn't fail, mind you, but I am for being confused! EPIC CHAD FAIL!]

Ex-Rare concept artist reimagines Metroid as a Hanna-Barbera cartoon

As a kid, I was lucky to have parents who showed me things that came before my time. One such medium was Hanna-Barbera cartoons. I watched hours upon hours of Hong Kong Phooey, Snagglepuss, and Wacky Races alongside...more
