Take one of the best Gamecube games, Metroid Prime (in my Top-Ten All-Time), flatten the 3D game into a 2D game and you get Metroid Prime 2D. These guys are serious about their Metroid Prime and it shows. This takes time and dedication that I’m currently not acquainted with. I’m glad others are, as this looks to be quite a cool endeavor.
This is definitely why people are hoping and praying that Nintendo opens the Revolution to home-brew development like this. Throw this up on the Revolution download service, let people download for 8-10 bucks (a guess, of course) and let people enjoy a new take on Nintendo’s IP. Nintendo takes their cut and these guys get what’s left over (hopefully a non-trivial amount). Everyone is a winner. I tip my hat to these guys, I’ll be following this one and I hope it succeeds.
