Likely inspired by Metroid Dread, a fan took to Twitter to post his Metroid fan art which features Samus as the Neon Genesis Evangelion robot.
A recent Metroid fan art sees the main character in the game series Samus become a Neon Genesis Evangelion mecha. Neon Genesis Evangelion was a successful mecha anime series when it premiered in 1995, and Metroid has had a similar cultural impact since the release of its first opus in 1986.
Since the October release of Terror Metroid, there has been a resurgence of interest in the Nintendo game series and its main character. There are many Metroid spin-offs, but the last main video game was from 2002 Metroid Fusion. Terror Metroid is a sequence of Metroid Fusion, despite its launch almost 20 years later. As this time frame suggests, the game has been in the works for years – and it was recently confirmed that Terror Metroidthe development of took 19 years.
Probably inspired by the new Terror Metroid Game, Dennis osaj took to Twitter to post their Metroid fan art that features Samus Aran as a Neon Genesis Evangelion mecha. Artwork is for Osaj’s Inktober x Metroid challenge where artist / programmer posted new Metroid art every day in October. from Osaj Neon Genesis Evangelion-Inspired by Samus sport Terror MetroidThe version of his Power Suit with the extended helmet and visor. Samus’ right arm also has his Arm Cannon. However, as evangelization‘s flagship mecha EVA-01, there is a major spike on each shoulder of Samus’ costume. The black and white design skillfully captures the domineering atmosphere of the EVA-01 while maintaining Samus’ determination to fight whatever comes its way. Throughout October, Osaj drew several anime-inspired crossovers for Metroid, including Dragon ball z.
Fan art of the Metroid the series is nothing new. Samus fan art shows her Terror Metroid costume of Mega man zero illustrator. This piece delighted fans because Capcom’s Mega man video game franchise is about a combat robot defending the world from robotic threats – in many ways similar to MetroidSamus protects the galaxy from space pirates. Likewise, there’s something particularly apt about Osaj’s crossover between a mecha anime and a series with a character wearing a cybernetic suit.
With Nintendo Terror Metroid having been out for less than a month, there will certainly be more Metroid fan art coming soon. Hopefully the future Metroid fan art will bind fans until a new installment in the Metroid the series is coming out – maybe this next installment will be the long awaited one Metroid Prime 4.
