Metroid Fusion Launches March 8 for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack

    Experience the entire 2D Metroid timeline on Nintendo Switch.

    Nintendo announced Metroid Fusion comes to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack starting March 8. With the release of Metroid Fusion, the entire mainline 2D Metroid series will be available on Nintendo Switch with the exception of Metroid: Samus Returns for Nintendo 3DS. This includes the original Metroid and the latest entry, Metroid Dread

    Here’s an overview of Metroid Fusion via Nintendo:

    Metroid Fusion 

    In Metroid Fusion, interstellar bounty hunter Samus Aran is attacked by an X parasite while exploring the mysterious planet SR388. This organism is not only deadly, but it can mimic the abilities of any creature it infects – including Samus herself! Saved from the brink thanks to an infusion of Metroid DNA, the X parasite’s only natural predator, she soon discovers that the parasite has spread to the research station orbiting SR388. Weakened and out of options, Samus must do whatever it takes to destroy the X threat before it’s too late.
    Embark on this critical mission alongside Samus and experience classic Metroid gameplay while exploring a massive research station teeming with hostile life forms. Collect power-ups – including favorites like Morph Ball and Screw Attack – uncover a multitude of secrets and experience the adventure that links Super Metroid to Metroid Dread. But be wary, because the dreadful SA-X, an unstoppable X parasite mimicking Samus, is on the loose … and it’s coming for you.

    Once Metroid Fusion arrives, if you want to enjoy the main Metroid series in order, you can play Metroid on the NES – Nintendo Switch Online library, Metroid II – Return of Samus on the Game Boy – Nintendo Switch Online library, Super Metroid on the Super NES – Nintendo Switch Online library, Metroid Fusion and then conclude with the latest installment on Nintendo Switch, Metroid Dread. Plus, if you’re an intrepid bounty hunter, you can branch out and play the Metroid Prime Remastered game, which is available now!
