Metroid Game Guide

Last summer, the super-talented Philip Summers launched a beautiful hand-drawn game guide for The Legend of Zelda on NES. Available as a PDF or (to a very limited extent) in physical form, the guide featured completely hand-drawn and hand-written pages full of glorious art, tips, maps, walkthrough info and more to help you beat the game in style.

Now, Summers is back with a guide for Metroid. Once again covering the series' very first entry on NES, we can expect more of the same this time around. The guide will be fully mapped, helping you snag every last power-up as you try to work your way through the game, and will also include other "cool stuff" that'll no doubt be a treat for the eyes.

A quick social media tease already has us on board:

We'd expect the guide to be available in digital and physical formats just like before – if you're wanting to get your hands on one, make sure to follow Philip here to keep tabs on those upcoming pre-orders.

If you're playing through the Metroid series in anticipation of Metroid Dread later this year, this is bound to come in handy. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
