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.

r/metroidvania Podcast postponed for Thanksgiving Holiday

Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday, our usual Wednesday night r/metroidvania podcast stream has been canceled. It will resume next week as usual. Our Saturday Stream for Blasphemous Part 8 will go forward as planned. Thank you for your understanding.

Upcoming Metroidvania YouTube Compilations

Because we do not currently create a lot of footage for Metroidvania Game previews, we like to include links to other YouTube channels whenever we can. Below are two lists of upcoming Metroidvania games you can check out to see what’s on the horizon.

New Releases

Micetopia – Switch, PS4, Xbox One
“In Micetopia you play as a brave mouse who must fight, jump, and explore its way through a world of mystery. Overcome enemies, gain new powers and rescue your compatriots from the clutches of their captors.”
From what we’ve been told this game definitely falls into the “Mini-Metroidvania” category, and it has been priced accordingly.

New Steam Pages

Bladam Topaz
“Bladam Topaz is a quirky 2D Metroidvania platformer about a young man collecting evidence for his highly flawed and questionable solutions to various life problems.”

Romancelvania – Also coming to Switch, PS4, PS5, and XBS
The recently funded kickstarter sensation now has a steam page! “You play as the legendary playboy vampire himself, Drac, as he battles and romances his way across Transylvania. After being reluctantly recruited by the Grim Reaper to star in a “reality dating show,” he’s on a mission to find the world’s most eligible monsters, get them to move into his party mansion, and restore his former glory by killing everything in his path along the way.”
