Lovely!! It's been long since a 2d Metroid, maybe this will satiate my thirst. As I don't have a website, I could not post anything about this game. Hope the game gets on Wii U soon.

Edit: the only thing they need is someone who can make a more original design on the suit... it's a Samus Suit with a few retouches, basically.

if VAria games can make this why in heck NINTENDO slacking on Contra?? i wanna buy Wii-U not for smash bro. Donky kong only R-type,Gradius would be welcome.

BlackWolf1588d ago

Ummm... I don't think I've grasped what you are trying to say, but both Contra and Gradius are owned by Konami, so Nintendo has nothing to do with those...

Loadedklip1590d ago

Inspired? ... more like cheap knock off.

It looks better than any Metroid game.

FANTA11801590d ago

sorry but super METROID looks like it play a million times better than this , and for the a new game the animations looks like trash ..

deafdani1590d ago

I was going to argue against your opinion, but then I saw your comment history and... wow, you're a sad, sad dude.

Are people that thick headed ? Anyway I look forward to seeing more of this, its a shame we have to rely on other people to make a Metroid-esk game instead of Nintendo themselves.

Lol someone who calls themselves Killzoner thinks a game with an all grey color palette looks good, it make sense...
(I know the new Killzone is actually colourful)

Just so everyone knows these are only alpha play test levels and not part of the actual game. The development is still very early, they mention in the youtube comments its been worked for only three months so far. Animations and its art work are going to look different and better over time.

I'm always down for Metroid style game so I'm looking forward to this.

Its nice to see indies being so nice to Nintendo. They must really like Nintendo's policies.

I've been following the developers for quite some time now and this game is just getting better and better. Can't wait to see it release.
