Check Out Retro Studios Unseen Metroid Artwork

A whole host of never seen before artwork from the Metroid franchise has been uploaded by Retro Studios artist Danny Richardson. The incredible art work contains images of Omega Metroid and a very early take on Mecha/Metal Ridely. You can check out more of the Metroid artwork here.

    1. If you’re talking about the 2nd picture, thats an Omega Metroid from Metroid 2 and Metroid Fusion. If you’re talking about picture 1, I think that may be the Metroid Hatcher from Metroid Prime 3… I’m not 100% sure.

  1. Not many people know of Retro, yet I feel like they’re one of the best out there. All they put out are amazing games, so whatever their next project is will undoubtedly be just as good. Seems as if they know about Metroid (my favorite series) better than anyone else. Fuck my butt :D

  2. I remember seeing Metroid prime 2 concepts artwork before which was never put in the game.

    This art work is amazing Retro should make a new Metroid but they really need to make a Starfox also. Below is some Metroid prime 2 unreleased art work to see more, remember this IS not new information. Also theres concepts if you stroll down.

    It was called metroid 1.5 which is all concept never released in the game. Just some more to see for you fans ;)

    Now you’re playing with power

  3. I feel like a lot of people are associating Retro Studios with the old-time Rareware Studios and thus they praise them for games like DKCR and Metroid Other M. Although the formulas for those games aren’t anything new, Retro did revive them, especially the DKC series. I hope Retro becomes the new Rareware with Nintendo.

    1. I’m hopeful that if Retro gets more manpower, they may work on more than 1 game. I know that’s really something that Nintendo and Ubisoft can pull off, but Retro would be great. Otherwise, Nintendo is opening up to have other devs help with games, maybe they’ll choose the next Retro.

    1. I thought no one had picked up on it, but I’m glad that you did; now it doesn’t seem so awkward now – or does it?

    1. Dude I’d have a fuckin heart attack if that was ever announced. It’d put HALO and GEARS to shame. I mean it already does with music, worlds, abilities. Can you imagine if the graphics looked like “The Samaritan” video…man that’d be beast!

    Thank you sickr for exposing me to more retro! they are my absolute favorite developer. although others may have put out more good games in total retro is the only one i know that has been consistantly good like retro. there have been, to my knowledge, no bad games to come from retro. there needs to be more metroid primes and a retro-developed star fox. or f-zero! remember that series? the one that hasn’t existed since gamecube? who else would love to see another game starring captain falcon that doesn’t also star ness? or, for that matter, a game that stars ness and doesn’t also include captain falcon! *hint: retro needs to make an earthbound game!*

    1. Judging by the fact that Retro was making an RPG once that was canned then the fact that they MIGHT work on a Zelda, well…who knows?

  5. To all the ppl that love metroid: DId you know metroid was hte worst selling games compared to all the zeld and mario games. Nintneod didnt really like metroid, and Myamotot never liked it eith. Hell he never created metroid. Lets keep the spirit up and show nintendo that we care as much about samus than we do link or mario!

  6. Hey assholes, you should be ashamed to work for a site that steals from other people (in this case, stealing the research on this done by mama robotnik on gaf), and then obviously deleting all comments about this on your site (since there aren’t any on there). While deleting my comment, please think about how pathetic you are.

  7. Buon weekend farfallifero,Luciano. Excellent essay, Michael.
    We sift through all of the suggestions and try to pick the most relevant, timely stories for each
    week. Bay fishing is bringing in redfish, black drum, trout and
    sheepshead. In a world of knowledge information and knowledge sharing,
    this is the key ingredient to success.

  8. Among the many ridiculous indicators of “terrorist activity” cited in this bill are:
    opposing the income tax, advocating a return
    to the gold standard, criticizing American military intervention,
    and stocking up on more than one week’s worth of food.
    and General Grant layer in reggae and dancehall flavors and are a testament to the
    friends he’s made with his music over the years. How did Direct Action get pushed out to
    some outside group that is barely represented at the G.
    A’s?. Saturday, March 3, 2012 . So let’s have a constitutional amendment mandating marriage equality.

  9. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get
    setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

  10. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website
    yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?

    Plz answer back as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to
    know where u got this from. thanks

  11. Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
    for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options
    for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.
