Regular readers know I’m a big fan of the Metroid series. Unfortunately Nintendo hasn’t made one in over four years, and the last Metroid game could be charitably called…disappointing. Luckily I’m also a big fan of Renegade Kid, and they’re big fans of Metroid too! We’re practically family!

Joking aside, their retro-themed Metroid homage, Xeodrifter, is coming to the 3DS eShop next week, the 11th to be precise, for a mere $10. The game is heavily inspired by Super Metroid and Metroid: Zero Mission, with the brilliant foreground-background switching mechanic from Renegade Kid’s previous title, Mutant Mudds, thrown in for good measure. Check out the trailer below, and if it piques your retro fancy, consider supporting one of the best indie developers in the business today.
