DidYouKnowGaming? has released a new video today that covers lost Metroid games that have been rumored for years. Narrated by vinesauce, the video reveals the results of DYKG’s investigations into whether and how far Metroid 64 got into production, as well as “Project Valkyrie”, the prototype that Next Level Games was developing, for which concept artwork was leaked online in 2014. (Disclosure: I proofread the script for the Metroid 64 portion of this video at DYKG’s request). Additionally, former Metroid Prime engineer Paul Tozour reveals an XCOM-like spinoff he pitched at Retro Studios for the first time, Metroid Tactics. Quite a few Metroid games have never seen the light of day, so it’s always fascinating to learn about what could have been.
