The Metroidvania Review is keeping its eyes out 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.

Site News: Review Changes for two New Releases
This month we had three games release with requests to review each, which means we needed to update our schedule accordingly. This Monday’s Review will definitely be replaced with Sheepo. Because I want to review it as soon as possible, if we can I’d like to also include Enter Digiton as a bonus review at the same time. If we can’t fit it in with Sheepo or Castlevania Circle of the Moon the week after, then Enter Digiton will definitely be our September 14th review. In a few days we will hopefully be able to provide more solid information with our monthly update. For those who have been following our schedule, don’t worry, Super Daryl Deluxe and Lyle in Cube Sector will still be coming.
