Xeodrifter Channels Metroid in New Trailer

Renegade Kid’s upcoming 3DS game, Xeodrifter looks very promising, and a new trailer released today provides an extended look at what players can expect when the title releases later this year.

Toting wonderfully pixelated visuals and an equally impressive chiptune soundtrack, the game’s layout, mechanics, and even setting are extremely reminiscent of the lauded Metroid franchise. In the absence of a new installment to Nintendo’s slumbering series, Xeodrifter may just be what starving Metroid fans need.
