Digitally Remastered Screenshot From the Video Game ‘Super Metroid’

Super Metroid - Depths of Tourian

Photoshop artist TJ Townsend has digitally remastered a screenshot taken from the 1994 16-bit game, Super Metroid (here is a larger version). TJ has also released a terrific time-lapse video that shows his entire design process.

In order to give the screenshot a 16×9 aspect ratio this is not an actual screenshot from the game, but made up of several screenshots and sprite sets. Included in this scene is a metroid, which is not accurate to the game, but believable since there wouldn’t be a logical reason that one could not wander into Mother Brain’s room (And I really wanted to remake the metroid).
