AM2R team reunites for new, original Metroidvania


Some of the team that worked on beloved fan game Another Metroid 2 Remake have reunited to create an original Metroidvania. Bō: Path of the Teal Lotus is 2.5 action-platformer inspired by Japanese folklore and games like Okami, Hollow Knight and Celeste, and will render its world in a "unique hand-drawn art style." It was successfully funded through Kickstarter on March 3, 2022, but just recently announced that the designer of AM2R, Milton Guasti, has joined the team as an associate designer, helping out with level design "to make sure that the exploration and gameplay stays fresh, fun and satisfying." 's executive producer, Robert Sephazon, previously worked with Guasti as a producer on AM2R.

Bō: Path of the Teal Lotus is expected to launch of PC, Mac, Linux and Nintendo Switch in September 2023.

That's cool. I find it dumb when people make Nintendo games as fan projects, with how anal Nintendo is about making fan-games. So, I assumed that they're good enough just to make their own game.

This is the ideal outcome for a fan game. AM2R is possibly the best Metroid, and one of the best games of the genre, but if it hadn't been a Metroid game, it would have been buried under the massive number of games that exist. Similarly, I'm interested in this new game only because I know how talented the Dev team is, and if they hadn't made AM2R, this game would have gotten buried too.

Other Devs like the ones behind Mario Crossover have done similarly.

yeah. I'm not totally hooked yet on this game. but knowing AM2R, I will definitly play this. otherwise I propably won't even consider it. I'm hoping the metroid prime 2d team will follow this.

heheh guess they finally learned their lesson to stay away from nintendo IP :creep:
And what lesson is this exactly? That they couldn't make a great game on multiplatform and build a large enough fan base based on their work using Nintendo's IP that they can then successfully fund their campaign to make their another game with their original IP? No doubt they knew before hand Nintendo would C/D them.. Which gamer in this era, especially one using Nintendo's IP isn't already aware of that?

So in short: Doing the thing they should have done with AM2R and made their own thing, even though Freedom Planet was just that.

But what do I know, AM2R and other Fangames/Fan Projects Nintendo has C/D'd before will continue to be heralded as living proof that Nintendo is a bad company alongside things that are deemed 'anti-consumer' despite not affecting said consumers 90% of the time by 'big name' YouTubers, Redditors, and average twitter users forever and ever, to love and to hug, and to be set on fire.

    Bought a used Nerf Mega blaster yesterday, good condition, but only got one single foam dart for it. And it was so chewed up, when I tried to fire it today it ripped the tip clean off and spat the thing out in two pieces.
