Metroid fans, here is something special for you today. Project AM2R – or Project Another Metroid 2 Remake – is a free fan-made project that aims to recreate Metroid 2 with updated graphics and gameplay. This project has been under development for quite a while, and its first full release is now available for download.
As the team behind it noted:
“Taking elements from newer Metroid titles: the fast paced gameplay of Metroid: Zero Mission, the atmosphere and solitude of Super Metroid, and adding new game mechanics, AM2R is one of the most ambitious Metroid fan games.”
Here are the key features of Project AM2R:
- Metroid Zero Mission style gameplay
- Map system
- Updated enemy AI
- New areas
- Challenging Metroid fights
- Stackable beam system
- Completely redrawn enemy and Metroid sprites
- Log system with non-intrusive narrative
- High quality soundtrack
You can download Project AM2R from here. We strongly suggest downloading this release right now as Nintendo may take it down (once it becomes aware of it).
