Samus meets dubstep in Metroid-inspired track celebrating series’ 30th anniversary
It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since Samus Aran first set foot on the haunting planet Zebes in search of space pirates when Metroid released on the Nintendo Entertainment System on August 6, 1986.
Celebrating three decades of intense side-scrolling action and exploration, video game music record label GameChops has released a tribute to Metroid in celebration of its 30th anniversary with an original track titled “Elysian Sky” by electronic artist Varien, who’s best known for his work on The Wailing Dead, Furious 7, and Monstercat. The video combines footage from “The Sky Calls” by Rainfall Films and gameplay cinematics from Metroid Prime.
You can find the video tribute below:
