Moon Studios hires developer behind Metroid 2 fan remake

Share

Nintendo did end up forcing the developer to pull the game from the internet.

Milton Guasti, creator of canned Metroid fan project AM2R, has been snapped up by Ori and the Blind Forest developer Moon Studios. He took to Twitter on August 6, 2017 to make the announcement. "I'm now part of Moon Studios, I'll be working on level design for Ori and the Will of the Wisps".

AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake) was released last year - exactly a year ago yesterday - to a positive response from Metroid fans.

Boldin was the 2003 Offensive Rookie of the Year after being taken in the second round of the draft by the Arizona Cardinals . The deal is worth $2.75 million and includes $1.25 million in incentives, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter .

On the NEOGAF forums, co-creator of Ori and founder of Moon Studios, Thomas Mahler, expressed that Milton is an wonderful talent. The highly regarded fan game was developed exclusively by one person, Milton Guasti, who recently took to Twitter to announce that he has joined Moon Studios, the developers behind the Xbox and Windows PC exclusive, Ori and the Blind Forest. And who knows, perhaps Guasti's work on Ori and the Will of the Wisps will garner a ton of attention and see him working on a new Metroid title sometime in the future. Microsoft announced the sequel Ori and the Will of Wisps at their E3 conference in early June.

With Guasti hired to work on the level design, it's hard to say how far along in production the game is. The series' first title, Ori and the Blind Forest, is out now on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
