2021 has been a great year for both Evangelion and Metroid alike with Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0: three times once and Metroid: Dread being the last entries in both franchises, and now an artist has merged the two franchises imagining how one would look EVA units if given a makeover inspired by Samus. While Evangelion has not yet announced any new project after the arrival of Thrice Upon A Time theaters and Amazon Prime, Metroid fans are awaiting the arrival of Metroid Prime 4 that has been hanging in the wind.
Metroid itself looks like a series prepared to eventually receive an anime adaptation, though the bounty hunter Samus has not yet reached the small screen. On the other hand, Neon Genesis Evangelion has seen a lot of games in the past, although the last time the franchise created by Hideaki Anno reached consoles was in 2011, which means it has been about a decade since Shinji Asuka, Rei and the other members of NERV been part of this medium. Both franchises are definitely excellent examples of their means and are confident that both will appear once more in the future.
Artist Twitter Dennis JWSO shared this incredible fusion in which one of the titanic Units EVA receives a makeover based on mechanical suit Samus has used throughout the decades of the Metroid franchise, which has been mostly relegated consoles thrown by Nintendo:
The creator of Evangelion, Hideaki Anno, has not mentioned his return to anime franchise that helped him gain popularity, but is ready to enter the world of pop culture and science fiction with his next two films live action Shin Ultraman and Kamen Rider Shin, two properties longstanding in Japan. Giving each of these monster hunters new makeovers, it looks like Anno a break from the world of NERV and instead will take you plunge into the world of Shin as he had done with Shin Godzilla.
