Metroid II - EJRTQ Colorization

Hack of Metroid II: Return of Samus


EJRTQ converts Metroid II to full color. This mod combines the art of the beautiful but buggy EJRT colorization 1.2 with entirely rewritten code, fixing bugs and crashes, allowing it to run on most emulators, and adding additional graphical improvements.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Metroid II - Return of Samus (UE).gb
  • CRC32 DEE05370

Makes the game look phenominal!

Reviewed By: Supergamerguy on 03 Jul 2021

This feels like a completely new game, rather than just a new coat of paint. Every graphic in this hack has been lovingly recolored to match the look of later games, which makes for a new experience for both longtime fans and newcomers to the series. Though I wish a few Quality of Life fixes were added as well, what we have here is a notable improvement over the bland, grayscale original. This is a must play for anyone interested in giving the Gameboy version of Metroid 2 a try.

Version 1.3 Recommended - Yes
