Samus And Metroid Turns 25 Years Old

While Microsoft are making a big fuss over Halo’s 10 year anniversary, and Nintendo itself highlighted Mario’s 25th birthday, Samus and Metroid turned 25 over the weekend and I’ve barely heard a peep about it from anyone. This makes me a little bit sad.

You already know how much I love Metroid Prime, and the influence and quality of Samus’ 2D outings is beyond repute – and the absence of any noise from Nintendo’s end makes we worry about how the series will be treated in the future. Metroid: Other M and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption didn’t exactly set the charts alight – so maybe we’re on the cusp of a Metroid drought?

I hope not.

Anyways – the above video is a nice little birthday tribute vid from Metroid fans.
