Its a sub-genre of platformers from what I know about it. Games that are similar to the 2D Metroid and Castlevania games.

Shantae is very good. If you like metroidvania and platformers, you should give it a try.

I've never really cared for Metroidvania games. Unless Ori counts as that genre? 

Yes, Ori is metroidvania.

Actually a decent selection for once.

Metroidvania are platformers with an emphasis on exploration. The trademark of the genre is getting new abilities to reach new areas. Some of the most famous games are metroid, castlevania SOTN, Hollow knight, Ori, Shantae.

I did love the first Ori and am looking forward to the second next month.

I've played only 3 Metroidvania games I think; Ori, Guacamelee, and Indivisble. All 3 were fun though. Been meaning to give Shantae a try for awhile. Will also be nice to own a copy of Sonic Generations on Xbox, only own it on PC currently.



I love Metroidvania games.

Shadow Complex
Shantae 3 and 4
Indivisible
Axiom Verge
Dandara
Guacamelee 1 and 2
Headlander
Ori
Steamworld Dig 1 and 2
Yoku's Island Express
Omega Strike

etc.



Momodora is a great indie metroidvania.
Castlevania Simphony of the night is backward compatible.
Recore is a really good 3d metroidvania.

I'd never thought of ReCore as a 3D Metroidvania game, but you are right. I thought it was a decent game that didn't quite live up to its potential. Ori was great due to its art style and fluid controls. Funny enough I don't care for Metroid or Castlevania.
