I’ve always thought it’d be awesome to remake Metroid 2. A group of us at Retro even discussed doing it as a side project at one point. Nothing ever came of it, though I still think it’d be fun to remake it as a 3D sidescroller. Today I just discovered, via YouTube, that someone has in fact made the effort to recreate this game with updated graphics and it looks pretty rad!! Check out this blog and the youtube video links on it:
Much thanks and respect to DoctorM64 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I may just have to download your remake and try it out now.
