Classic Remake - Metroid SR-388
Maybe I'm a bit late on this but when I read about that I've been very excited and forgot to mention it. Metroid SR-388 is a fan project for Metroid which takes on the SNES version "Super Metroid" and follows this path.
Currently, all what is available is this teaser but as the creator says it is already outdated and even this looks incredible, the expectations for this game are quite high.
I just hope the final product will be available and copyright issues with someone (Nintendo) won't put this to an end.
