The number of exciting homebrew ports in development has grown massively over the past few years as fans get to grips with new tools that allow them to develop for the defunct hardware they loved as kids. Mega Final Fight continues to be very much on our radar, and Sega ports like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night show just how far the homebrew community has come in recent times.

We've got another Mega Drive / Genesis offering to show you today by the name of Metroid Mega Mission, an attempt to transfer Nintendo's iconic series to Sega's 16-bit hardware.

As you can see from the footage below – shared by Genesis 8:14 – the game is looking very close to the SNES classic Super Metroid in terms of visuals, and this is apparently a very early demo, so it's only going to get better as time goes on. We'll certainly be keeping an eye on this to see how it progresses.
