Metroid Looks Stunning in Unreal Engine 4

It looks increasingly likely that we will never see a new Metroid game on the Wii U. Nintendo is already working on the successor system — code named “NX” — and has not even hinted at Metroid on Wii U.

One fan has taken it upon himself to create a proper high definition Metroid demo using Unreal Engine 4. The result is a stunning, moody experience in the vane of the tremendously successful Metroid Prime series on GameCube.

The demo places Samus in a dark, narrow sun temple mixing a third-person perspective with first-person shooting. You can download the demo and try it out on your own.
