ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Local gamer Libbi Fisher is reportedly backtracking through the corridors of her childhood to find the nostalgia she has for the Metroid franchise before the upcoming Metroid Dread releases.
“I love the Metroid games! Or, at least, I’m pretty sure there was some love for the Metroid games around here somewhere. I can never be sure, but this whole area of my brain just feels like I’m gonna find some nostalgia somewhere,” Fisher said to friends following Nintendo’s Metroid Dread announcement. “Sometimes it can get kind of tricky because I can lose track of where I am and then I’m not sure if I’m going through a childhood memory or just something completely new that I’ve never seen before in my life. I wish this place had a map.”
According to those familiar with the situation, Fisher’s friends are more into different Metroidvania games.
“Metroid seems cool, but I need some quality of life upgrades to enjoy those kinds of games. That’s why I’ve been digging through my memory to see if I like Hollow Knight or just the art style,” said Fisher’s roommate Donald Sitrick. “I wanna find it, but man is it hard! I guess I gotta just keep practicing and trying again and again.”
At press time, Fisher was unable to locate any nostalgia for the Metroid series in her childhood, but did find an upgrade that allows her to perform a Screw Attack.
