Photos - Super Metroid
Some screenshots of the great Super Metroid on the Super NES. I really hope Nintendo has been paying close attention to the spectacular blockbuster success of New Super Mario Bros Wii. 2D games are in demand and bigger than ever. We want a new Metroid, and we want it in glorious two-dee!
When I played this game back in the mid-'90s, I had no realization that would be the end of classic Metroid. God Bless the fine folks at Retro Studios for their Metroid Prime series, but it really isn't the same experience. And that goes double for the pair of overrated Gameboy Advance Metroids. I want Super Metroid - dark, moody, mysterious, and fiendishly difficult.
