Our Weekly Update on News we've heard around the web relating to Metroidvania Games.

The Metroidvania Review will be keeping its ear to the floor for any Metroidvania related news, and on a weekly basis we gather it up and share it with you. This will primarily be links to other sites, and you may have already heard the news throughout the week, but in case you missed something we hope to provide a good summary for what’s out there.

If you hear any interesting Metroidvania news – New Games, Major Updates to Existing Games, interviews with Metroidvania developers, or anything else of merit – share it with us and we will share it here on this weekly post with credit given to the finder (Please provide a link to your social media so we can send them back your way.) Even if you find something we already knew about, we’ll still give you credit.

New Steam Pages

CHIP: Rescuer of Kittens
Between this, Gato Roboto, and Catmaze I may need to add a “Cat” feature to my features list. There isn’t much description on the Store Page yet, but it sounds like it’s going to be just what it says on the tin. You’re a spaceman, and your goal in life is to save defenseless kittens.

Joining the “Roguevania” category of games, Jumplord is focused more on the platforming aspect of the genre. Given that basically everything Roguevania up until now has been combat oriented, this could give Jumplord an edge in finding a unique niche.

SITE NEWS: Other Resources Page

If you haven’t already noticed, yesterday we added an Other Resources Page to the site. This will contain links to other useful websites regarding Metroidvania Games. If you have something you’d like to see added to this page, or if you own a site that also covers Metroidvania content, please contact us and we’ll look into having it added.
