As Metroid Prime Remastered reminds new and old players why it’s a masterpiece, Nintendo has added Metroid Fusion to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack. Released in 2002 for the Game Boy Advance, it’s considered one of the best games in the series. Now Nintendo Switch players can experience the magic for themselves.
Metroid Fusion sees Samus Aran traveling to a research station suffering from an outbreak of parasites called X. After nearly dying to X, it’s now Samus’s mission to eradicate them. Unfortunately, parasite-affected pieces of her armor have created the SA-X, a powerful copy of Samus that hunts her throughout.
As players traverse the station, they’ll retrieve Samus’s abilities – including classics like the Screw Attack and Wave Beam – and hopefully survive against the SA-X. If you’ve never experienced a 2D Metroid title, then Metroid Fusion is a great place to start. Stay tuned for more details on Game Boy titles coming to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack in the coming months.
