Welcome back to the show! Get ready for a fun thought experiment this week: what if Metroid Dread had released on the DS as planned back in the late 2000’s? What kind of sacrifices would have had to have been made? Would EMMI’s still be as intense? Would their routes have to be scripted? Could all the items and abilities have worked? What would the second screen have been? Would there have been touch controls? Would the game have sold well? Would we still have gotten Other M?
So many questions and branching timelines to discuss here, so come and fall down the rabbit hole with us!
Shoutout to the amazing Rachel Ham for her “de-make” Metroid Dread art! Follow her on Instagram here!
