This is a remastered screenshot from the video game Super Metroid. Released in 1994 Super Metroid featured an open world where bounty hunter Samas Aran must defeat Mother Brain to keep the galaxy safe from improper use of Metroids. There are also space pirates there looking to use Metroids to gain power. I think that is right.

Super Metroid's game style has lived on in many great Castlevania games. These Metroidvania games are amoungst my favorite, but Super Metroid still stands out as the one I'd most like to see in high definition.

In order to give the screenshot a 16x9 aspect ratio this is not an actual screenshot from the game, but made up of several screenshots and sprite sets. Included in this scene is a metroid, which is not accurate to the game, but believable since there wouldn't be a logical reason that one could not wander into Mother Brain's room (And I really wanted to remake the metroid).

I like your art style but I don't feel like you're really paying homage to the game so much as change it. I was under the impression that Nostalgia was remembering memories of older things you loved. Of course the argument could be made this is how you saw it. Otherwise I just feel like people are just being graphics whores lol Super Metroid was and still is perfect. Stop making the purist cry lol

probably my favorite game of all time or at least in my top 5, and still have to have a play through at least once a year or so. I'd SOOO sell my body for an actual HD remake of this game (sigh) c'mon Nintendo you would make loads of cash if you remastered such a classic game ( I digress ) 

Incredible piece of art here and a great vision into what should be. Thanks for the time and effort put into this and thanks for sharing it for all of use to enjoy!

Hi, I found this piece on Etsy, and instantly favorited it but then did some more searching to see what other type of work was in the shop and came to the realization that the owner of the shop was not the creator of the work. As an artist myself who makes his living selling his work and skills, I wanted to bring this to your attention. Maybe you know about this already maybe not. I just wanted you to be aware of it. I can't link to the Etsy page, but if you search TeamRocketStore I'm sure you will find it.

All the best,
-Tom Ryan's Studio
