 I saw Nintendo's Switch presentation and was super bummed that they still haven't announced a new Metroid game.

Practically I am waiting since 13 years for a new 2D installment and since Metroid Prime 3 which was released 10 years ago for another great 3D part (Prime 4, preferably developed by Retro Studios).

I am just not pleased how much care they gave to the franchise, so I made this, just to see how a new metroid 2D game could look like.


Restrictions:
This Animation is 1.5 times the size of Super Metroids Sprite, so at a height of ~70 pixels.
Which further means the sprite would be opptimized for a tilesize of 24x24 pixel.
The sprite a lso is done with a 32 color palette, so it'd be optimized for current handheld screensizes and smartphones, while maintaining the looks of classical 2D Metroids.

Have you played AM2R?
It was made by a super fan and C&D'd, but definitely on line in quality with Fusion and Zero Mission and provides 6-8 hours of gameplay for the first run, if you want to get all items.

ah yes, i already did and totally agree. Really sad about the C&D, but it is still possible to get the game no?, i just hope nintendo doesn't do the same with the mother 4 fan game.

well it's the internet, so yeah, still possible to get the game and it never will go away.
Most likely with the Mother 4 fangame the same will happen though.

That Fangame was super awesome, in places even more polished than Nintendo's 2D games.

A new Metroid Prime would have been nice.

Nice animation too, by the way! :D

3D or 2D doesn't matter a whole lot to me, I just want an exploration game again.
It's one of the few series where I like both gameplay formulas.
But Prime was just excellent in terms of art direction and world design.

I agree. Metroid Prime was an amazing series and I realy do hope Nintendo makes another Metroid game just like it.
