An HD pack is now available for the NES game, Metroid. This pack replaces graphics, sound effects, and music. It is a hack that builds upon many prior hacks and it uses Metroid mOTHER as a base (available at: https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1988/
). Credit should go to the original authors for work done on prior hacks.

• Increased resolution**
• Increased frame count for running**
• Scrolling backgrounds**
• Updated sound effects and music**
• File resources for alternate sound and graphics**
• New title and ending screen**
• New secret area in Brinstar**
