Metroid: SR388. Holy. Shit.

If you’re into the game modding community heavily or even casually, you’ll know that 75% of the mods produced are absolute bollocks. However, there are some shining beacons that defy my own pessimistic expectations of fan modifications.

Super Metroid on the SNES is one of the games often having it’s code and programming molested by hobbyists in an effort to make the next big, full conversion mod that would surpass the original game’s mechanics. Fortunately, there are a few mods out in the wild that are actually decent while there are others that want you to pull out your hair in utter frustration.

To add on to the former list is Metroid SR388, produced by vonrichter. Possibly an evolutionary step for the full fan-modded conversion scene, it has new weapons, new animations, new bosses, and new EVERYTHING. I don’t know if this will be a ZSNES .ips patch or a full blown executable file. If it’s the latter, I am fucked as I am a loyal Mac slave.

Musings aside, here is the trailer for it after the break.

You can also download a higher quality version here.

Also, be on the look out for new updates, possibly a new Open Mic, and even a visit from our College Communist, n3m3cy5t!

  2. pyrohazard Says:

    Not yet, unfortunately. :(

  3. It’s not a ROM hack. It’s a completely standalone game. And unfortunately I can’t comment whether or not it will be on anything other than PC at this time.

  5. Zane Blade Says:

    What, if any, emulator program will it use?

  6. This is a realy awesome looking game wich i cant wait for it to be released.

  7. The game is programmed from scratch (C# or C++, not sure) by Von Richter, it’s not some shitty rom hack. From what I hear about 95% of the graphics are completely custom too. Can’t wait!

  8. Holy Shit that looks awesome
