Metroid: Zero Mission

American Boxart

Metroid: Zero Mission is a 2-dimensional Metroid game available on the Gameboy Advance. It was released two years after Metroid Fusion, but is in no way a sequel. Zero Mission is a remake of the first game in the series, Metroid. However, there are multiple differences between Zero Mission and the first game, namely an ending that was not present in Metroid.


[edit] Storyline Overwiew

Samus is going back, back to the beginning. Before the destruction of SR388, before disaster struck on the Space Pirate's Frigate; she's taking us back to her first mission: Samus Aran's Zero Mission. The Galactic Federation in 20x5 can no longer stand as the wall between order and disaster. We find the result to be the Chosen One. The lone bounty hunter strong, mentally and physically, to take on the forces of anarchy that threaten the Universe. The Mother Brain must be destroyed, Kraid and Ridley must be struck down. These are your goals and you must stop at nothing to accomplish them. Will this be the end though?
