The HD remake Nintendo never gave us is almost here!
Another Metroid 2 Remake is a total remake of Metroid 2. It's being created by mainly one guy, who's been developing it for years. I've played the demo myself, and the game looks and feels amazing. All of the music and sound effects have been redone aswell.
The release date has just been announced, and it's coming out August 6th! (source)
If you're curious, I recommend checking out the demo from 2015, which can be downloaded here:
Some screenshots I took from the demo:
Before some of you scream "C&D!!", please consider reading this post:
Jesus Christ people, stop with the C&D stuff. Nintendo do not shut down fan projects like this unless they are sold for a profit. I cannot recall a single instance where Nintendo has C&D'd a ROM hack or fan project like this, ever.
And before anyone says OOT 2D, that was the creator being an ass and trying to get out of the project. Nintendo didn't do shit. Nintendo did recently take down a browser version of SMB that was playable in widescreen - but that was essentially piracy and affecting their bottom line. Pokemon is also out of their hands, as the Pokemon Company issue the C&Ds.
Look at smwcentral.net! Thousands of hacks! Full disassembly of Mario World and Yoshis Island with the code hosted online! Been running over a decade! No C&Ds. Ever.
What about Zelda Classic? That's gotta be shut down by now right? Nope, still going!
Finally, here's Nintendo saying this on one occasion, but they have made their stance very clear many other times:
So, please - can we stop with this stuff? It happens in literally every thread regarding Nintendo fan projects.
