Taking cues from the official Metroid Manga, Derrick Bitner from GameXplain shares his vision of how a Metroid Movie could potentially work on the big screen. With narration by Bitner and a small cast of voice actors enacting key scenes, Daeyumi’s beautiful artwork is brought to life in this 10 minute pitch.

 

Derrick Bitner adds:

 

“This is just a small taste of my Metroid Movie project. The entire script is written but before I can move forward, I need to see if the interest is there. So, if you enjoyed this sample and want to see the rest, please let us know in the [YouTube] comments and share it as much as possible. I would love to continue on, the question is, do YOU want to see more?”

Electronic musician SynaMax has been able to trace a trove of synth patches (sound settings/programming) for sounds and music from the Metroid Prime series. Using vintage synth EMU Proteus 2000 and sounds from the KorgMS2000, SynaMax has been able to replicate many of the iconic sounds and music from the Prime series.

 

SynaMax prefaces:

“I recently discovered that the KORG MS2000 was used for the Metroid Prime Trilogy OST. The MS2000 and the MicroKorg [used in the video below] have nearly identical sound engines so we can take most of the synth patches that were used on the MS2000 and load them into the MicroKorg.

 

Here is a selection of patches that were used”

 

 

Here’s SynaMax breaking down and reconstructing beats from iconic Metroid Prime Songs in FL Studio:

 

 

A great ear and killer detective work from SynaMax, make sure to check out his YouTube channel and give the man a follow.

The upcoming indie game Ghost Song is a Metroidvania that we at the Metroid Database have been excited about for some time now. With its focus on atmosphere, isolation, mystery and horror, you could argue that Ghost Song is already more Metroid than Nintendo’s own recent offerings to the franchise. In this exclusive interview, Ghost Song creator Matt White talks to us about his upcoming game, its development, and his thoughts on the state of the Metroid series.  We are very excited to bring you this little preview and hope that you will get a feel for what is to come and share in our excitement.

We’ve been informed via the Bluepoint Games’ Facebook page that former Metroid Prime 1 & 2 Lead engineer and co-founder of Bluepoint Games, Andy O’Neil has passed away. He was 47. Cause of death was not announced. Andy was an Austinite, like me.

We at the Metroid Database pass on our deepest condolences to Andy’s friends and family and are eternally grateful to his countless contributions to the Metroid series.
