First news of the morning! Nintendo announced a brand new game in the Paper Mario franchise, Paper Mario: The Origami King. Watch the trailer below and stay all the way til the end.

You’ll notice there’s a big ol’ Metroid reference where Samus’s helmet falls on Mario’s head. A lot of rumors mulling about with this seemingly random cameo. People have stated online that this confirms that Nintendo has been creating a Metroid Fusion remake (assumedly for Switch). We don’t like to post a lot of rumors on this site very often, but all we can say is don’t believe it until it happens.

It’s-a me…Samus?

The second bit of news is we have been shared this awesome metal-style remix of Metroid Prime’s opening title theme c/o musician Adrien Gonzales. This track uses the actual samples from the game. Oh how I wish it was barely longer than a minute!

Check out more of Adrien’s work at his Bandcamp. Thanks for sharing, Adrien!

LEGO builder LDiEgo created this elaborate LEGO Metroid set and it gives us a glimpse at the possibilities of the new Nintendo & LEGO partnership. This Metroid set was submitted to LEGO ideas, which is a place where members of the LEGO community can create and share ideas and have LEGO community members support it. If the idea reaches 10,000 supporters it has a high probability of being produced, after expert review, as an official LEGO Ideas set. This Metroid set is currently at 873 supporters. Once it hits the 1,000 supporter milestone, it gets a 6 months extension to reach 5,000 and another 6 months after that, to reach its goal of 10k. With your help, this LEGO Metroid set has the possibility of being a real product!


From the LEGO Ideas page:


Based on the classic “Metroid” videogame franchise from Nintendo, this building toy features the bounty hunter’s most recognisable vessel, as well as some key elements from the entire series.
  • Carry the jar with the Metroid in suspended animation inside the cargo hold.
  • Move the Technic liftarm to drop Samus inside the gunship to restore health and ammo. Then withdraw the axle at the back to exit the gunship via the lower hatch.
  • Remove the windscreen to access the cockpit.
  • Flaps can be open to reveal some inner details.
  • Modify the exposed intakes to conceal them.
  • Includes two moveable stud shooters.
  • Adjust the three bottom pads to land in any surface.
  • Open the secret door to drop Samus as a Morph Ball.
  • Includes a minifigure of Samus Aran’s iconic Power Suit.


Make sure you support this awesome project on the LEGO ideas page and help make it a reality!


You can also visit LDiEgo’s Flickr account for more HD photos of this awesome Metroid set.





This Power Suit was made in just 3 days! A sample of the process below. Incredible!

Make sure to check out the video, in the tweet above, to see the suit in action.

It looks, surprisingly, light and agile! Amazing work @11Vadu






Last July 2019 we posted a story about electronic musician SynaMax tracking down the exact instruments and sound patches used in the Metroid Prime series music. Just yesterday, SynaMax released a music patch for Metroid Prime (GC) that (via the Dolphin GameCube emulator on PC) creatively alters the music for:


VS. Metroid Prime (Spider)

Phendrana Drifts

VS. Parasite Queen

Artifact Temple

Planet Tallon IV

Tallon IV Overworld


…with more songs to be released as well. Now you may be asking yourself, “why would I change the perfect tracks that Kenji Yamamoto already made for Metroid Prime?” Why? These new tracks sound amazing! Just check out this trailer and see how well they mesh with the game:



Make sure to check out the video on his YouTube channel for detailed instructions on how to get the music mod running on the Dolphin emulator  and for a direct link to the free patch.
