As a series that’s been around since the days of the NES, Nintendo’s Metroid series has always been a favorite chronicling the tales of bounty hunter Samus Aran and her intergalactic adventures, which have now been brought to life in an epic new fan film.

Production studio Rainfall Films and director Sam Balcomb have released a new fan film called Metroid: The Sky Calls, which brings together a slew of effects and technical wizardry to bring a pretty spectacular take on the Metroid series, with the short also starring The Nerdist‘s Jessica Chobot as Samus Aran, and also starring Halo 5: Guardians‘ America Young.

Though it’s not an officially sanctioned or produced film in collaboration with Nintendo, the non-profit organization Rainfall Films have put together a pretty great love letter to a series like Metroid with The Sky Calls, which you can watch the full short below:
