Rocketron, Dandara, and a Metroidvania Game Jam!

The Metroidvania Review is 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 Game Update – Dandara Trials of Fear

Dandara is a wholly unique game that we really enjoyed when we played it in 2018. This year it’s getting a free content update that will add three new areas and expand on the game’s lore. The game has also been updated a lot since our review with balance tweaks, remastered soundtrack and more. It may be one we’ll have to revisit this year at some point.
