Metroid: SR388: Best fan made game EVER!


1:58 PM on 04.23.2008



About a month ago we posted video of an incredible-looking fan remake of the underrated Metroid II: Return of Samus. It looked great, but just try to forget about it for a second and feast your eyes on the above. Now this ... this is what I am talking about.

This amazingly well made trailer is from community member (and obvious Metroid super fan) vonrichter’s upcoming Metroid: SR388. He posted the video on his community blog last night and, needless to say, I was impressed.

The game looks to be a completely original Metroid game using graphics from SNES masterpiece Super Metroid, with a ton of new enemies, weapons, special moves, backgrounds, and animations (*swoon*). And that scene with Samus sliding on the ice? Badass! Metroid: SR388 looks so good, in fact, that it could easily pass for an officially licensed 2D Metroid sequel. Do you not agree?

My hat is off to you, vonrichter. What you and your team have created so far is ridiculously impressive. I can’t wait to see (and play!) the final product. Good luck ... and may Nintendo’s legal team stay as far away from you as possible. Let me know if you need me to distract them with a Mario copyright infringement or something.
