So I finished a Metroid II remix <3. It’s called SR388 - The Way Forward.
About a month ago, I discovered there is a Metroid 2 remake in progress. I got super excited so I decided it’s about time for a decent Tunnel theme remix. This is similar in style to my Mother 3 remix, a bit more coverish and straight forward, not elaborate. I feel that the Tunnel theme is strangely upbeat for such a dark game, so I decided to keep that bright feel w/ the sine lead. I also went for a bit of a gritty organ early on, because that’s how I always interpreted the initial lead in my head when I played this on the Game Boy growing up.
Metroid II is wildly under-appreciated, especially this song, so I hope my take can do it some justice.
The gameplay is me playing the first few minutes of the remake demo, which is really awesome and I hope they finish! Please forgive my playing, as I was using a keyboard. This is also just a remix, I am in no way affiliated w/ the project except I think it rocks!
