Metroid (メトロイド ) is a series of science fiction action-adventure video games by Nintendo. It chronicles the missions of space-faring bounty hunter Samus Aran who protects the galaxy from the depredations of the Space Pirates and their attempts to harness the power of the eponymous Metroids. Metroid combines the platforming of Super Mario Bros. and the exploration aspect of The Legend of Zelda with a decidedly darker atmosphere and a greater emphasis on nonlinear gameplay.

As of 2011, the Metroid series consists of eleven games, with releases on every Nintendo home and portable console except the Game & Watch, Nintendo 64, Virtual Boy, Game Boy Color, 3DS, and Wii U (although the latter two allow users to download older Metroid titles). As well as being one of Nintendo's most financially successful franchises with over 17.44 million games sold as of September 2012, it is also one of the company's most highly acclaimed series, with a GameRankings average score of 85% across all eleven titles.

Notes

  • On an interview with Series Director Kaname Fujioka, he has stated that they specifically chose the Bowgun Weapon Type to best represent the Metroid-themed Weapon, being able to change its forms depending on the kind of attack used.[1]
  • Kaname Fujioka is a fan of Super Metroid, which helped choose the sound effects used for the Metroid-themed Equipment. The sound effects come from older Metroid games.[1]
