Super Metroid HD wins Game of the Year in Middle-earth (Update)

From Alchemist Defined -- the same artist responsible for yesterday’s gorgeous Sonic the Hedgehog 2 HD mock-up -- comes this equally beautiful rendering of a fictional Super Metroid in HD. I hate typing the word “fictional,” as I keep trying to trick my mind into thinking this game is real.

Not only does this image look absolutely stunning, but it is depicting one of my favorite sequences in the history of videogames: the final showdown between Samus and the extra powerful form of Mother Brain. I almost feel like paying someone with my first born child to make this game a reality, if only to see how the rest of this dramatic scene pans out in high-definition. You fellow diehard fans of Super Metroid know what I am talking about. This scene gets really good in about five seconds.

True, there may be almost too much going on in the overly busy image, but just the fact that it hints at what a 2D/HD Metroid game could look like makes it completely worth it. Like yesterday, check the gallery for a larger version, perfect for your computer wallpaper.

I don’t even have any idea who this Alchemist Defined character is, but I already want to be his/her B.F.F. Call me.

[UPDATE: I just found a hidden Easter Egg concerning this AMAZING pic! On the Alchemist Defined Web site, there is some secret inviso text saying there are hidden images in the picture. Those images are: a Game Boy, a Super Nintendo cartridge, Gunpei, an NES design, and a warp pipe. I haven't found any of them yet. Can you?]

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Seriously. B.F.F.!]
