This is what a HD remake of Super Metroid could look like

DSOGaming: "As you may already know, we here in DSOG love 2D games. There is something really amazing about those 2D old games, and we strongly believe that proper HD remakes of classic hits (like Doom or Mortal Kombat) would be mind-blowing. Seriously now, imagine a Mortal Kombat 2 remake with HD sprites and additional special effects. And today, we bring you a screenshot (and a video) showcasing what a HD version of Super Metroid could look like, that was created by DeviantArt’s member ‘Elemental79′. " (PC, Super Metroid, Wii, Wii U)

Wow, i had no idea a remaster would take so much work. Excellent job as well.

This is ONE technique. I'm sure artists at nintendo would just redraw it from scratch.

Most of this you could have done in z brush then port that into an engine sort of like trine did. Zbrush would be way faster then you could just relight it. Plus with 25 gig disk now you could just make the whole thing in a few photoshop files or polygon designs. That would be a fun project actually.

WOW! I love how he made the suit out of motorcycle parts. Some people can completely manhandle the crap outta Photoshop.

This is what, XXXX**** could look like next-gen/in HD/remade articles and what-not always irk me because the people always try to go for a bland, "realistic" art style in doing so. In my opinion that removes all of what could be called "style" from the game.

It the graphics were colorful, dynamic and animated in the oginal version then they should be more so in the later version.

Not saying this is one of those case but seeing it with just some higher resolution textures actually takes away from the visuals for me.

Wow, if Nintendo was smart they'd hire this guy to draw the artwork for a Super Metriod Remake...too bad Nintendo is garbage and doesn't produce any real games anymore.

What would you say was their last "real" game?
Dj7FairyTail  +   642d ago
They are working on Metroid Prime 4 for Wii U.
It obvious for Retro Studio who said themselves they are working on a game everyone want them to work on.

They get Naughty Dog, Virgil, Crytek, Bungie and few other experiences Devs on board.

While you very well may be right, I think just as many people would love to find out that they've been working on Zelda.

To bad that all you wii fan boys gets so excited over a concept video, just like you have been doing with Zelda. Have fun with this crappy system while I'll be playing bioshock, that your so called next gen console doesn't have. Have fun play Lego undercover or something cause that's all that's out for this crappy system . No ethernet port and 32 gb hhd enough said system is trash ...
