The titling of this amuses me greatly. The NES was made in the 80s, as was Metroid, and its music is produced by actual analogue synthesis. Nice warm tone in these tracks, a bit dry for the 80's style though. I was expecting some more liberal interpretation, actually. Still, a pleasant listen.

That's... beautiful.

Someone plz do a ROM hack with this as the soundtrack. Also, add a map.

(Yes, I'm aware Zero Mission exists. I just did a playthrough of it a few months ago.)

There's a Lua script for FCEUX for Metroid that adds a map actually. Also, updated graphics including series-accurate Ridley (with a tail and everything), etc. Check the entry here for MDbtroid:
