The Creator Of The Metroid 2 Fan Remake Is Working On Ori And The Will Of The Wisps

Milton Guasti, the creator of Project AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake), is now working on Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

Guasti announced on Twitter he's joined Ori developer Moon Studios as a level designer on Will of the Wisps. "I'm now part of Moon Studios," Guasti said. "I'll be working on level design for Ori and the Will of the Wisps."

Guasti's Metroid II remake was shut down by Nintendo last year after it was finally released for PC. The fan project, which began development back in 2012, added improved sprite graphics and new gameplay to the Game Boy title, in the style of the GBA game Metroid Zero Mission. But because of copyright issues and Nintendo's aggressive brand management, the game was shut down. That doesn't mean it doesn't live in our memories as a fond attempt to update the classic, and we're glad to hear of Guasti's success.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps was announced earlier this summer at E3. Like with Ori and the Blind Forest, Moon Studios' sequel features a stunning and vibrant aesthetic that makes it look quite unlike everything else on the market.

We haven't heard a lot about the Ori sequel since E3, but that's no cause for concern with an indie title early in development. The game will be an Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive, despite looking more like it'd be at home with the PlayStation 4's vast indie offerings.
