    The fan-remake of Metroid 2, previously blocked from distribution by Nintendo, has been updated to version 1.4.1 and now includes native Android support.

    New additions to the game include a new difficulty level called "Fusion", new enemy types and new log files amongst many other fixes. The game runs on both Windows and Android but be aware the recommended minimum specs for running on Android are a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a dedicated GPU.


    :!: Due to previous attention from Nintendo regarding this project please do not post download links here. Though you may find the information at the source link below.

    I still always laugh at the fact this existed prior to, and honestly, showed up Nintendo's own official attempts at remaking Metroid 2.

    It depends on who you're asking, because the official M2R probably seems more appealing to a casual audience while AM2R seems to cater to pre-established fans of the series. That's how I see it at least.

    New stuff for my Shield TV, yay! I like both Nintendo’s official Metroid 2 Remake and AM2R. Both offer their own take on the game. That said, AM2R might as well be an official game.

    Apparently it's not working on Android TV :( someone on Reddit says it crashes out.

    it's a patcher for v1.1 ?
    they didn't release 1.4.1 directly to prevent nintendo's actions?

    But, I have v1.2 demo :ohnoes:

    reddit has some already patched torrent links, but there's no checksum to be sure it's the proper file.
    my antivirus prevented to connect to one of the torrent tracker for android version posted on reddit. it always looks suspicious when getting one.


    I'm not sure it will work on my phone anyway, the specs says it needs a dedicated GPU (and probably a BT controller?).

    Nice update, I think I might play it. Hopefully someone will create a switch port. I enjoyed AM2R more then the official M2 remake tbh. It just feels like a more "normal" Metroid for me, really hate the near fighting mechanic of the official remake

    I still haven't gotten around to playing this. Question is who is updating and porting this? The original authors? I thought they got C&D?

    I tried the prepatched torrent link from Reddit and it worked fine. Give it a go.

    So wait - is this "official" from DM64, or is this a fan-made patch? I haven't been able to discern either way.
