Little Nemo Kickstarter, Partless Ron and Thrilling Triple Threat released, and new steam pages for Dewdrop Dynasty, Frauki's Adventure, Hippoxxxus, and Imp of the Sun

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

Due to technical issues, this Mondays Review will be Hero Core instead of the originally planned Lost to Time. We’re sorry for anyone who was looking forward to the originally planned review.

New Kickstarter Pages

Little Nemo and the Nightmare Fiends – Expires April 1st
Excellent news for the fans of the Little Nemo franchise. A new Little Nemo game is in the works, and it sounds like it will be a Metroidvania in the vein of some popular titles according to the description:

“The game plays like Shantae or Demon’s Crest with a splash of Little Samson. From Nemo’s bedroom, players enter the dream world;  forests, palaces, the night sky, ice caves, and a twisted funhouse  await. Using  character’s unique powers, players uncover each dream’s secrets to grow in power and defeat the Nightmare Fiends once and for all.”

New Releases

Partless Ron – Windows PC (Steam)
“Ron cannot walk or jump, but all his desires to walk, jump and travel were so strong that one day he woke up in an incredible world where everything is possible and even a little more. Go on adventures with Ron and find new opportunities that he dreamed of, kill monsters, improve your body and have fun!”

Thrilling Triple Threat – Windows and Linux PC (Steam)
“What do you get if you mix a platformer with a metroidvania and something in between but then [separate] that mix into three games that are then collected into a single game? Nonsense.”
