    AM2R (Another Metroid 2 Remake) has been in development for more than 10 years. Based on Metroid II: The Return of Samus, it's a game written by fans, for fans.

    After a demo version was released in 2014, this Saturday the full version landed, free of charge.

    "Finally. This is the first full release of AM2R. You'll be able to complete Metroid 2 like you never did before," a post by developer DoctorM64 revealed.

    "It was a long journey. I grew up both as a person and as a developer along this project. Today I can start sharing with you the rest of the game. There's lots of improvements and features planned for a near future."

    The release delighted the gaming press, with shouts of "brilliant" and "hot hot hot". But now it appears that Nintendo is attempting to pour cold water on the flames using the DMCA.

    According to an announcement this morning by leading Metroid fansite Metroid-Database, Nintendo took exception to the site hosting the game files and filed a complaint with its webhost.
