Fan-Made Remake Of Metroid 2 Gets Taken Down By Nintendo

Bye-bye.

Yesterday, a fan-made remaster of Metroid II: Return of Samus was released to commemorate the anniversary of the series, which fans were very excited about.  The remake was essentially offered a remastered version of the original Game Boy game that included “new and updated gameplay mechanics,” according to Project AMR2, the team behind the remake which had many followers clamoring. Although not the best game in the series by many gamers’ standards, it was clearly enjoyed enough to warrant a remake.

Sadly, the remake had to be taken down.  According to the Metroid Database on Twitter, the download was reportedly removed from the website due to a notice issued by Nintendo to the team behind the remake.  The Metroid Database states on Twitter:

This is unfortunate. On the other hand, the team was not given permission by Nintendo to do so. Perhaps, at some point in the future, the remake by Project AMR2 will once again see the light of day.
