Metroid II: Return Of Samus (Game Boy)
Enter SR388, Ruins, Ending
Metroid II: Return Of Samus is a Game Boy sequel to the NES game Metroid. The game has been remade for the Nintendo 3DS, with a release date of September 2017.
This track is one of the games main background themes. The difference in the tracks overall sound and delivered atmosphere is immediately noticeable in contrast to the first game. While the soundtrack does feature some more atmospheric and darker tunes, this one is of the other kind.
This theme takes the more mysterious aspects of the series and delivers a theme that is both curious and fitting for the small handheld.
The Ending theme is the games biggest and boldest track. It has the usual ideas of success and sense of completion that is common in ending themes.
