A 2004 Game Boy Advance release, Metroid: Zero Mission is an enhanced remake of the 1987 original. The game was created using a modified version of the engine used to make the excellent 2002 GBA title, Metroid Fusion. Zero Mission retains the same familiar style, gameplay, and basic plot of the original Metroid, but it also features the addition of cinematics, a selectable difficulty level, new content, and enhanced graphics. Once completed, it also unlocks the original NES version of the game. If you are interested in experiencing the first Metroid adventure, this is the definitive version.
Also out this past fortnight, the next entry in the popular Mario & Luigi RPG series, a Wii U version of the Capcom Wii game, Zack & Wiki, and a turn-based strategy game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Play the last game ever made by Nintendo's first internal development team. Jump past the break to see more of these new releases from the past two weeks.
