  • Random Ronda Rousey "Always Wanted To Be Samus"

    Giving Samus Aran for her money

    It's no secret that former UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey is a video game fanatic - just watch her workout in a Pikachu onesie - so it comes as no surprise that the "baddest woman on the planet" revealed that she'd want to star as Metroid's Galactic bounty hunter, Samus Aran, in a video game movie. In...

    Review Metroid: Zero Mission

    From zero to hero

    First things first, Metroid: Zero Mission is not a straight remake of the original NES Metroid with GBA quality graphics. It's a complete retelling and retooling of Samus' first 2D space adventure, including remixed areas, new power-ups and over a decade of refinements added to the formula. Nintendo has freshened the experience...


  • Rumour A Planned 2.5D Metroid Title For 3DS Got Cancelled in 2012

    Samus just can’t catch a break

    Metroid is a series long overdue for a sequel. Regaining relevance after the excellent Metroid Prime series by Retro Studios, it seemed like the franchise was here to stay. Unfortunately, after the highly polarizing Metroid: Other M in 2010, Nintendo's been pretty frosty towards the series and has been hesitant to...








  • E3 2014 Nintendo Hopes to Share Metroid News in the "Near Future"

    Keen to accommodate both 3D and 2D styles of franchise

    One notable feature of Nintendo's showing at E3 2014 has been its willingness to unveil new IPs or, if not entirely new brands, spin-off small ideas or franchises into new releases. Intelligent Systems is bringing us Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., for example, while one of the largest — and popular...


  • Weirdness Gaze in Wonder at Junkboy's 16-Bit "Demake" Art

    Don't you want Super Smash Bros. on SNES?

    Retro-inspired "demakes" of popular modern games are all the rage these days, but don't you want to put some on your walls? Swedish graphic designer Junkboy has created a wide array of gorgeous 16-bit demake art, much of which is available for purchase online. You can check out his Tumblr page for the full...




  • Weirdness Samus Aran's Metroid Backstory Re-imagined as a Love Song

    Samus does Glee

    It seems that a number of Metroid fans quite like Samus Aran to be a largely silent, steely-eyed killer. Or, at least, they don't want her to be an emotionally unstable — swerving from distant monotone narration to being frozen by childhood trauma — young bounty hunter daft enough to slowly burn to death until given permission to...

  • Weirdness There's a Metroid in my Spelunky

    A cross-over too good to be true

    Spelunky with a dash of Metroid — it sounds just as bizarre, yet as appetising, as pea and ham soup. That’s why this weird match-up has now been made a reality by mod maker, joey4track. To publicise his unique creation exclusive to the PC version of the game, he passed the modification onto YouTube personality...

  • News Mother Brain Revealed As An Enormous Super Smash Bros. Assist Trophy

    Mother NO!

    If Samus in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. is ultimately going to be heavily influenced by the design from Metroid: Other M, then perhaps she'll be less the silent and deadly hunter from the Metroid Prime Trilogy and more prone to flashbacks, fearing the past and generally being full of angst. The latest assist trophy may, then, send our...


  • News Check Out This Stained Glass Art With A Nintendo Twist

    Heart (container) of glass

    Let's be honest - when looking for festive gifts this year, an elaborate piece of stained glass artwork to hang in your cathedral / average-sized home might not be the first thing that springs to mind. However, the gallery of Rick Daniels' work showcased on his Etsy site may be just enough to tempt you. A self-taught...



  • News Metroid Fan Film Fundraising Campaign Demolished After Claim From Nintendo

    It's now "the subject of an intellectual property dispute"

    Two weeks ago we reported that a Kickstarter campaign emerged for a fan-made Metroid film titled Metroid: Enemies Within. Its goal was to reach $90,000 to bring the 10-minute Hollywood-style film to fruition, and had Christian Cardona on board, who has worked on shows such as Bones, Lost...

  • Video This Super Metroid Animation is Rather Impressive

    Let's all dream of a full animated series...

    So, things have gone a bit quiet with the Metroid franchise. Metroid: Other M divided fans on the Wii, 3DS ambassadors received a copy of Game Boy Advance title Metroid Fusion, and the IP made an appearance in Nintendo Land. None of those have quite satisfied fans in recent years, it's safe to assume...

  • News Metroid Fan Film Seeks Crowdfunding For Completion

    See Samus in full Hollywood glory

    If you're a fan of Metroid and have some spare cash lying around, you may be excited to know that a new Kickstarter project has been opened to fund Metroid: Enemies Within, a ten minute live-action fan film. "Fan film" might be a slight understatement, as the project is being helmed by Christian Cardona, an Emmy...

    Review Metroid

    By Zebes, it’s Metroid on the Wii U

    The NES section of the Wii U's Virtual Console expands by another notch with the addition of Metroid, regarded by many as one of the best entries that amazing series has to offer. The great news is that it's every bit as wonderful as you remember; the bad news is that it's no more interested in holding your hand...
