MDb news since 1996.
Oh man, do I have some awesome information for you. It's not quite news of a new Metroid game, but it's just as good.
If you subscribe to our Facebook page, you may have seen a post about Metroid Prime's unused content. Since then, NeoGAF user Mama Robotnik has put together more, incredibly comprehensive threads on cut and unused content of all the Metroid Prime games. There was even "talks" of a Metroid 2 remake by Retro, but nothing ever came to fruition. This concept art of a reimagined Omega Metroid by Danny Richardson may be the only glimpse we ever get of it.
Any fans of the Prime series will deeply appreciate these threads. There is just way too much content in them for me to ever describe it in detail. Check them out below:
- Metroid Prime
- Metroid Prime 1.5 and Metroid 2 Remake
- Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
- Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
- Metroid Prime Hunters
But wait, there's more! Check out this incredibly kick ass Demo Reel of Sonny Santa Maria, who is currently the Lead Animator at Namco Bandai. Sonny worked as a contract animator for Retro during MP3. The demo reel has a few cutscenes that never made it into the game.
EDIT: The video has since been removed by the artist due to Nintendo's request.
