It's 3 weeks late, but here's the 1st part of a tribute series to what might be Nintendo's most underappreciated series: Metroid
... well, when I say underappreciated, I mean that it's Nintendo itself, not the fans, that neglect Metroid. No celebrations for its 25th anniversary, no proper celebrations for its 30th anniversary. Sure, Federation Force is on its way out, but it doesn't sound like a proper Metroid outing. It seems to abandon exploration in favour of multiplayer, which isn't the Metroid way.
Metroid may not be a big seller like Mario, Pokemon or even Zelda, but it has one of the best reputations out of all of Nintendo's works... well, until recently, it seems.
... Anyway, rant over!
So yeah, here's Power Suit Samus on her first recorded mission in Old Brinstar, Planet Zebes! I'm fairly pleased with my interpretation of Old Brinstar: it's a healthy blend of design features seen in Metroid 1, Super Metroid and Zero Mission.
I plan to upload tribute pieces to the first 4 Metroid titles (1/Zero Mission to Fusion) and then combine them all into one grand tribute! This process has taken more time than I expected, so I'm going to upload each piece one at a time, instead of my old plan of waiting until I combine them all before uploading... but I suppose you don't need to know that! XD
Like with any of my pictures, if you see something that looks a bit 'off', feel free to leave a comment.
Samus belongs to
... who ought to show her a bit more respect.
