If you still haven't heard, there's a port of Another Metroid 2 Remake 1.4.3 to the Nintendo Switch.
It is distributed as an NSP file, because this port is using GameMaker Studio 2 engine (not the Undertale revision, that means less bugs)

NSP link: *snip*
Link to LayeredFS mod with High Quality music: *snip*

UPD: osaka35 has redacted the links to "*snip*", links will be updated with a new way to get the port.

Russian translation bundled btw.
Share this port to your friends, I wanna make sure everyone knows about it.

Savefiles are compatible with saves from PC version of 1.4.3, use Checkpoint to modify your save folder.

Known Issues:
1. Installing with Tinfoil sometimes doesn't work, please use Goldleaf/Goldbricks (or DBI, if you know this)
2. Playing with a single joycon is not allowed, controller applet won't let you launch the game. (how would you do that anyway)
3. PLEASE INSTALL SIGPATCHES! THEY ARE REQUIRED TO PLAY THIS PORT!

Porting 1.5 update is not possible because developers are against Switch ports, and they tried to sabotage me by exploiting one GM:S 1.4's feature called YYC.

Pro Controller is ticked as the supported style, it should work, try downloading the latest build from this thread as I guess you were running an old version. If it still won't work, can you please contact me in Discord nik#5351 ?

thank you for sharing this and i hope the devs read this. Who are you developing this for? Nintendo fans no? stop sabotaging efforts for switch players to play this! I am totally cool with you not making a port and saying you are against it but sabotage is against the entire spirit of the scene! why are we sabotaging each other? let the corps do such nonsense.

Well, developers of AM2R are *really* paranoid about Nintendo getting 'em. So they did everything to make everyone forget that Switch port even existed in the first place. When some guy by accident asked in r/AM2R subreddit that "yo guyz i have a problem with switch port" instead of redirecting him to my discord (nik#5351) or twitter((at)nkrapivindev) they started accusing him of playing the Switch port IN THE FIRST PLACE!!! Don't worry, I DMed him, he was running an old version of my port so I sent him a link from this thread and it worked fine.
They also made discussion of Switch ports illegal on their Discord server (yeah I have *lots* of alts on their server, gl banning all of them lmfao):

I mean, it's just hilarious. If Nintendo really wanted to takedown the port, they would've done it right after 1.4-1.4.1 release, but this Switch port was flying around for like three or four weeks(?) and still nothing. That means using YoYoCompiler just to stop me (yes, they used YYC only to stop me, because they didn't write a single line about it in Changelog, they even put a fake data.win file which the game would ignore because of YYC, it was a renamed 1.4.3 to 1.5 with intentional bugs and glitches, just to make fun of me)

They say that "we tried to port the game to gms2 but we couldn't", oh well, Nintendo Switch support was introduced somewhere in GMS2.2, that means I was able to port the game to GMS2 and they couldn't? One guy with little to no real gamedev experience and with no access to the 1.4.3 AM2R source code did something they couldn't? That... tells a lot...
GMS2 also gives you the ability to make a native, true, macOS port of the game, instead of running the game through Wine (or PlayOnMac) which is absolutely terrible, and I have a macOS port and I would like to share it on r/AM2R but I was banned because of reasons I can't say here. (let's just say, these reasons are absolutely stupid)

Man, those guys are kinda ridiculous.

Weren't they ceased and dissisted anyways? Not like it makes any difference where the game is ported to anymore. It's copyright infringement, no matter where it's running.

It's also not their responsibility if it gets ported. If they have no involvement, they cannot be blamed.

Look obviously some hate and beefs are involved. All i am saying is look who is their target audience?? Pc players? Gimme a break! They should want their game to play anywhere. Now with that said I am a big believer in freedom. If they don’t want to do a switch port that is their right. But to sabotage such efforts is just silliness.

now the other half of the problem is nintendo. Look if no one is charging for a game mod and look if it is quality. If it is not utter crap. This is essentially free promotion for them! Heck in the case of kaze and last impact they should HIRE kaze he did such a good job on that mod. They shouldn’t be hounding these people over mods they give away...sad times

There were several revisions of AM2R Version 1.4.3
Early versions may not support undocked joycons and the pro controller.
Those also cant be completed.
The last Revision is revision 10.
Revision 8 and revision 10 both share the same version string tho.
They both report "1.4.3.8" as the version.
