A Metroid screenshot (faked, but awesome nonetheless)

We’re now into the final week before E3, and at this stage, the rumour mill is likely going to go wild, so don’t feel compelled to believe everything you read online about the Wii 2. With that said, an alleged screenshot of a Metroid game on Project Café has surfaced. The screenshot is definitely fake, but I’m sure we’ll all get a good kick out of it either way.

According to Shokio and Hatai in the comments below, the screenshots are lifted from Samus mods for Mass Effect 2 and Unreal Tournament 3.

But even if they’re not real, I can’t help but drool at the thought of an HD Metroid game after seeing them. How about you?

    That’s a Mass Effect 2 mod. I’ve played that game so much, I can tell. It looks awesome anyway though.

    Though this most certainly isn’t a real Café game, we should expect the visuals to be at least this good. I’d expect they’d be better, but I don’t see them going below the bar set by this.

    I expect more than that. Look at the first screen how ugly are the jets from samus armor.
    Project cafe must have tessalation to avoid this old-gen polygons!

    I like the looks of that, but I hope—if they bring Metroid to the Wii 2—they go the old fashioned, 2.5D way without going as far into details as adding blood to it; I think that would completely ruin the Metroid franchise, since the early Metroid games can prove that games don’t need to be FPS or bloody to be good.

    By the way, I love your blog, Feld0 (although I just started to visit it today, I can tell you have really good details and rumors by looking at some past articles)!

  6. Those are nice graphics, but am I the only one who wouldn’t want a Wii 2 Metroid game to look like this? Sure, if it was this good purely tech wise it’d be good, but something about the screenshots and their style just jars with what I’ve come to expect from the Metroid series (okay, because it’d a game mod of an unrelated game).

    Basically, I’d like a Metroid game with more tech power shown than the above, but not one with that kind of art style.
