About the Project
Metroids. The most dangerous species in the galaxy.
One of the most important moments of the Metroid storyline happened in SR388, after a titanic battle between Samus and the mighty Queen Metroid. Memories of that event start to fade... it was long ago.
Project AM2R aimed to recreate Metroid 2 with updated graphics and gameplay. Taking elements from newer Metroid titles: the fast paced gameplay of Metroid: Zero Mission, the atmosphere and solitude of Super Metroid, and adding new game mechanics, AM2R is one of the most ambitious Metroid fan games.
The game started development in late 2007, and it was released to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Metroid franchise, on August 6, 2016.
Nintendo filed a DMCA claim soon after the release, and we complied with their demands. AM2R is no longer being supported.
