I don’t know what y’all are talking about. Game looks fine to me. More than fine, actually. It’s gorgeous… exactly how I imagined a new 2D Metroid on Switch would. Love the light shining through the fan blades and the smoke wafting around, the colors and crisp environments. Ya, it’s a great looking game.

None of that is about the style, which is what I was talking about.

New Super Mario Bros U and Megaman 11 are also good looking games, but their actual art styles do nothing for me other than making games vastly older and less advanced look way more appealing to me. Which I should've mentioned because I also wanted to say its at least better than THOSE attempts. Particularly how animated the robots and Samus seem to be. It's also more appealing than Shadow Complex, which is what I think of when I think of HD era 3d graphics 2d Metroidvania. But that game's look is in a lot of ways, the most obvious Xbox 360 era look possible.

Basically, I wrote that knowing its a nitpick, and I'm more than willing to be proven wrong on it.

@Slowdive I am not sure they will touch super Metroid as I don't see it as something most of the fans would see in good eyes. The game is a superb experience both gameplay and artstyle wise even today. We could not say the same about the two previous entries that are quite bad in today's standards.

No, they'll just call it Metroid and continue releasing games. ''Metroid: Other M'' isn't part of that story arc either, and it's just called Metroid as well.

Super metroid is solid gold the way it is. No need for a remake. It's like back to the future and should never be touched or remade. Same with Link to the past. Though i guess a Link between worlds kinda is a remake.

If they could do it without changing it too drastically. Zero mission is a pretty good example of how you update a classic. I could never get into the original. Even when it was new i was thinking why the hell isn't there a map? Freaking Zelda 1 had maps in the dungeons. Oh and what's up with starting at 30 health after you die instead of a full life bar? I mean that's just torture.

@Slowdive @Zeldafan79 what improvements do you think are needed?

I have always thought that LTTP, Super Metroid and Super Mario World were peak 2D games and remakes weren't necessary. I think there are plenty of NES and N64 titles which are considered classics where remakes could be justified, maybe I have forgotten what the issues are!

I love what MS are doing so far but I really do not think either Fusion or Super need remakes. I just want to see them carry on the torch with something new. Super and Fusion are peerless in their own special ways, they both do things very different and along with Prime are, for me, the burning heart of what makes Metroid unique.

While I do expect the same, another part of me thinks why NOT change the name? It's not like the Metroid brand is strong or anything or at least we don't see it reflected in its sales.

They could use Samus but just not be limited by the Metroid lore and instead have a new take on the scifi genre.

Yeah, I am in the camp that Super Metroid is one of the rare games where I think it should remain untouched. The game is perfection. Okay, sure, no perfect games exist, but Super Metroid is as close as you can get as far as I am concerned. I love how moving throughout the game "feels" for a lack of better way of describing. It is immensely satisfying pulling of wall jumps for example due to the timing required. The sound and general atmosphere are great as well.

@Slowdive You make a good point, and if they did a remake I would probably buy it! My consideration is as much about the effort it would take and could it be used elsewhere. Link's Awakening to Switch is a major jump, I'm not sure a similar jump could be made for Super Metroid, LTTP or Super Mario World.

I wonder what this development team are going to work on next? I've said this about MP4 (meaning MP5) and I think the same applies for this games development team, if they have ideas for another Metroid game I would move them right onto that.

@Slowdive To be fair, I probably would play a remake just out of genuine curiosity as to what they changed, but to each their own.

On Metroid Dread... watched the developer video and I like what I heard, especially regarding the E.M.M.I. I am not sure I want to hear much more beyond that so that I can go into the game knowing as little as possible. But I am looking forward to seeing how the supposed story arc finishes.

@MS7000 I haven't watched that video, were there many spoilers? I might skip it and avoid further info!! I can't wait to play this!

@MarioBrickLayer More explaining what E.M.M.I is, what, if anything, it does to you, and talking about the gameplay, reassuring old fans that, yes, it is Metroid, and new fans that they are fine to play this one without context from previous games. There is some mild story stuff in there as well.

@JoyBoy Metroid is a bigger name than anything else they could come up with.

I'm playing through metroid fusion for the first time right now and I just love the atmosphere and all the parts where the samus clone shows up. I really hope that the E.M.M.I can capture the same horror feeling while not feeling as scripted.

I love playing and collecting modern and retro games and I'm very excited about Metroid Dread.

@Slowdive the thing is wall jumping is not necessary in the game. It is something that breaks the game when mastered therefore is a tool for speedrunning at its core.

@MarioBrickLayer it has a boss fight and they talk about some characters that come back from Fusion.

I think with Super Metroid on NSO, a remake would be extremely unlikely. Most of the time Nintendo remakes replace the originals, I may have forgotten some but Bowser's Inside Story is the only example I can think of where remake and original can be played on the same system.

The new Q&A on the front page is very interesting.

"According to Sakamoto, Metroid Dread will return to the more open approach of Super Metroid"

Confirmation that the level design is closer to Super than Fusion or Samus Returns, and also discusses that those two titles were less open specifically because they were portable titles.

Also, that yes (obviously) the Metroid series will continue beyond this. Given that Samus now is, effectively, the last Metroid, that would explain the title staying the same.

For a series that traditionally doesn't sell well, I'm happy to see Dread topping the AmazonNA and the AmazonJP best seller charts. Looks like this will sell better than the measly 600k copies Samus Returns sold on 3DS. The Nintendo fandom deserves a golf clap, seems as though they showed up this time.
