[Retrospective] Sci-Fi Horror Epic ‘Super Metroid’ Turns 25

Surprising, some people gloss over the fact that the Metroid series has its roots in sci-fi horror. Yes, in spite of the series owing a lot of its influence to the Alien series, most people still see the series as more sci-fi adventure, which is fair (given that this is Nintendo, after all).

An animated series adaptation of Capcom’s “Devil May Cry” franchise is in the works, according to IGN. It’s being developed by Adi Shankar, the executive producer of Netflix’s “Castlevania” series.

Yes, even Pokemon can celebrate Halloween. And when you think about it, that’s not too unusual. The notion of kids going door to door, either “catching” all the candy there is to be had, or doing battle with unique tricks if none is to be had, must seem a very familiar ritual to them.

SoraNews24 clued us in to all the tasty items, and we wanna eat ’em all. First up is Pikachu’s Halloween Clever Plate, which is basically the same Pikachu entree they serve all year, except now he has a little hat and a new Halloween collector plate. The Pikachu is made of potato, and comes with salad, hash-brown stars, burger patty, and a fried shrimp.
