As many Metroid followers are conscious of, the Nintendo 64 was one of many few Nintendo consoles that by no means acquired an entry into the Metroid sequence. After what many name one of many best video games of all time in Super Metroid, we wouldn’t see one other entry into the sequence till Metroid Prime and Metroid Fusion launched. Of course there was Zero Mission that launched on GBA, which is a implausible remake. However, it wasn’t a brand new entry. With that mentioned, it appears like some followers try to construct what Nintendo by no means gave us.
As famous by Nintendo Life, the Twitter consumer Auto Akino shared some footage of his personal Metroid 64 mission he’s engaged on. The game is being created in Unity 3d and makes use of a third-person perspective just like Metroid: Other M. Samus is ready to leap, shoot in all instructions, lock onto enemies, and is seen operating round in some purple caves. You can have a look within the video beneath.
From what’s proven within the video, the mission appears like it will be an entire lot of enjoyable. There is simply one thing about blocky video video games from the Nintendo 64 period that may actually tug on these nostalgic coronary heart strings. However, Nintendo has had a reasonably strict historical past with fan titles like these. Especially with Metroid titles.
Probably probably the most well-known fan made Metroid title AM2R was taken down by Nintendo. The game was a remake of Metroid 2, which Nintendo ended making themselves. If we needed to wager, as cool as this mission is, if it beneficial properties sufficient traction Nintendo will come crashing down on it.
