Even though its a reskin, it looks pretty good.

Thought it was funny how the guy was freaking about it haha

Why is her head on fire in the opening?
Samus never used a whip
You cant jump on things to kill them in metroid
Samus turns into a morph ball when climbing up a ladder?
A skree will fly to the ground, stop, and explode a few seconds later
I don't think a pug was ever in the Metroid saga

Couldn't watch the rest of the video.

Oh it's just a reskinned Spelunky. Pretty boring.
To be honest, a reskin might be what pushes me over the edge on nu-Spelunky. The art for the XBLA/Steam version is really off-putting to me and I haven't gotten into it the same way the original game hooked me.

I never realized us Metroid fans were so desperate for a new game.

But seriously, that mod looks incredible and I'm gonna use it when it does come out.

Not in a Metroid game, not canon. >:-(

Sure, why not.
Super Metroid + Prime series has the grapple beam. In Prime 3 the grapple beam can be used to make certain enemies vulnerable and can be upgraded to drain energy from enemies.

You can kill enemies with the grapple beam in games where it's present, in fairness.
