We have reached the end of 2019, and while it has been another quiet year for Metroid, we are proud of the content we have been able to put together for you over the past twelve months. As the person responsible for Shinesparkers, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the year gone by, and highlight the hard work of the team and all involved in making this community possible.
In total, we have published thirteen new additions to our Community Spotlight page, thirteen Features and an awesome interview with the legendary Idzuki Kouji, the illustrator and author of the Samus & Joey and Metroid EX manga. We are proud to have highlighted some incredibly talented individuals who have showcased some great Metroid fan projects, and to promote the work of our team with their own written pieces.
I do not take our team for granted. Whether they’re a writer, creating graphics for our headers, or doing their bit to ensure everything runs smoothly in my absence, I massively appreciate it and I value them greatly. To the team, I want to say thank you for putting up with my tasks, my deadlines and tolerating my crazy ideas for the community. It means an awful lot!
Next year will mark the tenth anniversary of Shinesparkers. We aim to put together some special content to celebrate this milestone. One thing I am happy to announce, is the Shinesparkers Podcast! Each month (or as often as we can) we will be getting the team together to discuss topics on the Metroid franchise. We are even hoping to bring together some special guests to join us! Please keep your eyes on the website for more information in the very near future..
Our End of Year feature this year is a fun little quiz, which involve members of the team answering various questions relating to Metroid and the website. It was quite entertaining, and we hope you will enjoy what we put together! You can check out the feature below.
All that is left to say is Happy New Year to our readers. We hope you enjoyed what we put together for you, and we hope you will join us in 2020 for more exciting content!
