After Metroid II: Return of Samus released for the Game Boy, Metroid fans have been clamoring for another Metroid game. Metroid Prime brought Metroid to 3D! Metroid Fusion brought Metroid back to 2D! But how did Metroid get from Metroid II to Metroid Prime? Well this is where Norfair, one of Samus Aran’s most haunting areas, comes in.
Originally Metroid II was going to be Metroid Prime 4! Metroid II was meant to be the game that created Metroid Prime! Unfortunately Metroid GBA wasn’t received very well (to put it lightly) and Metroid Fusion went under development instead. Metroid II’s plot would eventually help Metroid Prime by giving the plot of Tallon IV to Metroid Prime 1. Metroid II’s plot eventually became a Metroid Prime 2 plot and eventually a Metroid Fusion plot!
This is Metroid: Volume 1, the result of years of Metroid History research fueled by my own love for Metroid. I hope you enjoy Metroid: Volume 1!
