The primary season of Sport Informer’s Video Gameography explores the historical past of the Metroid sequence. After working down Samus’ traditional debut, we’re transferring on to its polarizing handheld sequel, Metroid II: Return of Samus.
Developed by Nintendo R&D1, Metroid II is basically considered because the red-headed stepchild of the sequence. Samus’ encore outing launched on the Sport Boy in 1991, which implies it was restricted when it comes to presentation and scale. The monochrome graphics and zoomed-in perspective made exploration trickier than its predecessor, and the first mission tasked gamers with finding and eradicating over 40 Metroids scattered throughout the map, a mission construction that hasn’t been applied since.
Be part of hosts Ben Reeves (@BenjaminReeves), Marcus Stewart (@MarcusStewart7), and particular visitor, comedian e book author/podcast host Chris Sims (@theisb), as we discover Metroid II’s lore, growth historical past, and lasting impression, equivalent to the truth that it’s obtained two fashionable remakes, each formally and in any other case.
