New Game Plus, shortened to NG+, involves beating the game while following the same restrictions as Any%, but starting with all of the items, thus making it similar to what NG+ traditionally is, despite not normally being an option in Super Metroid.

To more easily accomplish this, Total has provided a ROM of Super Metroid which has the player start on Ceres Station with 100% of items, including Hyper Beam if the player so chooses. Said ROM can be found here.

The ROM also has Samus spawn with very little energy, so that Ridley in Ceres Station will fly away after taking the same amounts of hits as the original game. Otherwise, he would take much longer to force away.

For those who do not want to use Hyper Beam, there is an option within the aforementioned ROM to enable or disable it from the "Special Setting Mode" before the start of the game.
