Carl Williams writes, "There is no doubt that Metroid has been a success story for Nintendo over the years. There are only a couple of Nintendo platforms that have not received a Metroid game, one of those platforms was a certified commercial failure and the other struggled against the competition- coincidence? I don’t think so, Metroid is a popular franchise and with any decent amount of popularity will come imitators. HYPERION is one such title that shares a lot in common with Metroid. This game is also coming out on the Commodore 64, to be released by Psytronik and RGCD later this year."
