More Metroid figma In Development

Ever since 2012, Good Smile Company has had a license to develop Nintendo themed merchandise as part of that product line. The first figure to see release was the Samus figma based off of her Other M appearance. Shortly after that a scale figure of Zero Suit Samus was released. Since then GSC has mostly released figures for The Legend of Zelda and Fire Emblem, but now we have two more Metroid figures on the way.

First up is this Zero Suit Samus figma announced way back in 2014. After nearly two years of silence, here is our first look at the prototype of that figure (courtesy of vapwaazu).

In addition, Good Smile Company has announced that a new Samus figma, based off of her armour from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is also in development (courtesy of Dengeki Online).

Shadow Complex Remastered now available FOR FREE ON PC
12.03.2015 - CapCom
Shadow Complex

Shadow Complex, the Metroidvania darling from 2009, has just been rereleased today on PC - and what's more, it is available FOR FREE.

That's right folks, if you didn't have an Xbox 360 or did and somehow missed out on Shadow Complex (or heck, you haven't played it in six years) now's the time to drop whatever you're doing and download it and play it!

I've already reviewed and recommended the game here - as has Infinity's End - but there's no need to take our word for it - see for yourself this classic Super Metroid-style adventure!

Thanks to Donald Mustard and the rest of the Shadow Complex team for this pleasant surprise!

Note Shadow Complex Remastered will also eventually be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Until next time...

Chozo Legacy: Super Metroid Remix Album by bLiNd

A couple weeks ago, remixer bLiNd released his latest remix album. The soundtrack of choice is Super Metroid. bLiNd nor GameChops never reached out to get promotion, so it flew right past us. I haven't listened to the album yet but I'm sure we'll be back at some point with a review. Genre is described as "progressive house." Of note are new remixes of the old tracks "Kindred" and "Jade Catacombs" which were originally released back in 2008 on an album called Reserve Tank: VARIAtions.

Check out the whole album here.

Super Metroid soundfont tunes from William Kage

Ever wonder, "Man, I wish someone would take all the instrument samples from some of my favorite SNES games and turn them into new music!"

Well, wonder no more. With SNES soundfonts from some of the most popular and well-received SNES games in history, composers are creating brand new music which sounds like it could fit right inside these games as long lost tracks. There are two for Super Metroid that you can listen to below. Be sure to check out William Kage's SNES Soundfont page as well as his YouTube channel containing tracks from nearly 50 SNES games.
