Metroid Prime: Federation Force is out August 19

Nintendo announced a new Metroid at E3 last year. Unfortunately it's Metroid Prime: Federation Force, which is, uh, well. Fortunately, this technicality did mean that we got to try and shave an approximation of a metroid into Zack's hair in...

This Super Metroid hack is a pseudo-remake of Metroid Fusion

This Zero Suit Samus figure puts the amiibo to shame

Two months ago, Nintendo released its Zero Suit Samus amiibo. It was adequate, but real Metroid fans might be left wanting. The Good Smile Company, the company with a good name and good intentions, has a superior figure that will sate ...
