Looking for a new Metroidvania game, any suggestions?

Title says it all, really, I imagine anyone that's clicking on this title is familiar with the genre. I'm open to any suggestions you guys have, and they don't have to be limited to any platform.

I really enjoyed Aquaria, on Steam for $9.99 IIRC.

Valdis Story: Abyssal City is a pretty good "Metroidvania."

Sadly, the first three I've already played. That last one looks promising though, are we talking Dark Souls Hard?

"Metroidvania" isn't a genre, it describes a couple games in ONE series. Only stupid people think it's something else, and spread it to other stupid people...

You're saying Guacamelee is trying to be Castlevania trying to be Metroid? Instead of just, you know, being like Metroid?

Cave Story and Bunny Must Die come to mind. Both great, very Metroidish games.
Also, La Mulana, though I haven't gotten so far in that unfortunately.

Aren't you one of those peasants that calls CoD an "arcade" shooter?
