The Metroid Dread Vol. 4 report is down. The latest report mainly focused on the Metroid Dread. This report celebrates the 35th anniversary of Metroid, which was released on August 6, 1986. The report also includes a new trailer for Metroid Dread.
This Metroid Dread report is essentially a summary of the 2D Metroid games. This can help new players stay on top of Metroid’s history in preparation for Dread.
Released on the Famicom in 1986 and then 1987 (with the console renamed the Nintendo Entertainment System), Metroid introduced the world to bounty hunter Samus Aran.
In this game, Samus is sent by the Galactic Federation to prevent the Space Pirates from using Metroids as weapons. Metroid is a floating life form capable of absorbing life energy from other beings, rendering them dangerous.
Samus lands on the planet Zebes and successfully destroys Space Pirate’s underground fortress, along with her mastermind, the organic supercomputer Mother Brain.
Metroid begins a story arc that will conclude in Metroid: Dread. While Dread intends to close out the 35-year story in development, we can assume there will be more to come in Samus’s story. Metroid Prime 4, part of the Prime Story that takes place after Metroid (and its remake, Metroid: Zero Mission), is also currently in development.
Metroid II: Return of Samus
Released in 1991 for the Game Boy (and its remake, Metroid: Samus Returns, released on 3DS in 2017), Samus explores the planet SR388, the source of Metroids.
Tasked with exterminating all the Metroids, Samus wanders deeper and deeper into the planet before taking out all the Metroids and Metroid Queen.
However, upon defeating the queen, a Metroid baby is born and becomes attached to Samus, thinking that she is the mother. Samus decides not to kill him and takes the Metroid baby with her.
Baby Metroid proves his usefulness by clearing obstacles in Samus’s path to help her reach the surface. He also aided in the fight against Proteus Ridley, who had tried to kidnap the baby Metroid.
The Metroid Dread report also includes information on Chozo, an advanced civilization long thought to be extinct, but will supposedly appear on Dread.
The Chozo are believed to have once lived on SR388, and remnants of their civilization, including the high-tech machinery and weapons they developed, can be found all over the planet.
Released in 1993 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the game follows Samus traveling back to the planet Zebes. The Space Pirates had been rebuilding their fortress, where they continue their goal of weaponizing the Metroids.
The Space Pirates attacked the Academy of Space Sciences and stole Metroid’s hatchling, which is considered the last Metroid in the universe.
Samus is tasked with retrieving the Metroid and stopping the Space Pirates’ plans.
However, in a fierce final battle with the monstrous Brain Mother, the infant sacrifices herself to save Samus. After the defeat of Mother Brain, Samus narrowly escapes from a self-destructing planet Zebes. The space pirates are annihilated by the explosion.
Released in 2002 for the Game Boy Advance, Metroid Fusion follows Samus guarding a field research unit on SR388.
There, Samus is attacked by the X parasite, a life form with the ability to mimic organic creatures. It turns out that Chozo created Metroids to combat Parasite X, being his only predator.
When Samus took out all the Metroids on SR388, the X Parasites flourished and turned out to be a potentially greater threat than the Metroids.
When Samus is exposed to the X parasite, she is put in critical condition, but is barely saved by a vaccine made from Metroid’s brood. She becomes the only living creature with immunity to the X parasite.
On board the B.S.L. At the station orbiting SR388, Samus engages in a fierce battle with the SA-X, an imitation of Samus in his Power Suit in full force, and manages to take down the X parasite, destroying the station and the planet SR388 in it. process.
This is the general summary of the important plot points in the Metroid timeline (excluding the Metroid Prime series). Metroid Dread is out on October 8, 2021.
