Super Metroid was the 2D action-platform smash hit that was released in 1994. The game featured female bounty hunter Samus Aran on her mission to save a Metroid from Space Pirates. Throughout the game, Samus would face a variety of enemies and uncover brand new weapons to aid herself.
Super Metroid's game design was impeccable and even today's most acclaimed developers look back on the title fondly, remembering just how brilliant Super Metroid was for its time. It took everything that gamers loved about the iconic Metroid for the original Nintendo and managed to not only live up to it, but exceed it in just about every way possible.
