Prime 2D is a gorgeous sidescrolling take on Metroid Prime, and it’s playable now

Metroid Prime was the first 3D Metroid game and it’s still considered a GameCube classic, spawning two sequels and at least one fan attempt to port it to PC. But one team is taking a completely different tack: they’re remaking Metroid Prime as a 2D platformer, in keeping with the style of classic NES and SNES Metroid games.

Dubbed Prime 2D, it’s the work of Team SCU, which has apparently been working on the project since 2004, albeit with some personnel changes along the way, as well as the help of “hundreds of volunteers.” The team issued a free demo of the project late last week, and you can download it here if you’re keen (or you can just watch the video above).
