A port of the classic NES title Metroid to the SNES has just been completed by romhacking master Infidelity.
Infidelity has spent over 2 months on this intense Metroid SNES port project. And he claims that it is “The most extensive port I’ve ever done.”
Longtime fans of this 37 year old video game will be happy to know there is a new way to enjoy one of the best NES games of all time.
For those unfamiliar with how and why one would port a game from one retro console to another – the primary reason to do so are the enhanced graphic and sound capabilities of the subsequent console.
The main being the MSU-1 music abilities, which this Metroid SNES port does include. That means you can play the familiar NES title with an enhanced modern soundtrack; we’re talking CD audio quality in an NES game.
And perhaps the most exciting additions are the Super Metroid (SNES) style map and character stats.
There is also the ability to save and load your game progress, a feature sorely missed on the NES game.
Surely these are great reasons to want the SNES version of this classic retro title.
How To Play
These are done for the love of retro video games, and Infidelity does not get paid for this work except by his fans who offer their support through Patreon.
His Patreon followers also get progress reports and early access to all of his projects, so that’s a pretty awesome bonus.
