Metroid Fusion Hits Nintendo Switch Online Next Week
Nintendo has announced that on March 8, subscribers of Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack will be able to play Metroid Fusion.
With the unexpected release of Metroid Prime Remastered last month, fans of the Metroid series now have access to another another classic installment in the form of the Game Boy Advance game, which was first released in 2002. Once Fusion is released with NSO, fans will be able to play the whole 2D Metroid series, from the first game all the way to Metroid Fusion and Metroid Dread in 2021, on the Nintendo Switch.
In Metroid Fusion, intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran is attacked by an X parasite while exploring the strange planet SR388,” Nintendo’s description of the game reads. This lethal organism can take on the characteristics of the host it infects, including Samus’s own talents. After being rescued by a dose of Metroid DNA, the only known natural predator of the X parasite, she learns that the infection has spread to the research station in orbit around SR388. Samus, now helpless, must do all it takes to wipe off the X threat before it’s too late.
According to Nintendo, connects Super Metroid and Metroid Dread through “a plethora of mysteries” for players to uncover.
