25 th Anniversary for the Metroid series

The Metroid series has celebrated its first 25 years in the course of the weekend just past. The first chapter of the saga was released on the NES in Japan in the distant 6 August 1986 and since then 11 other episodes have seen the light, the last of which, Metroid: Other M on Wii was released last year.

The undisputed heroine of the franchise, Samus Aran, has become an icon since its first appearance, when he left everyone speechless, taking off his helmet at the end of the first game. In contrast to what happened with Zelda, Nintendo has not so far announced initiatives to celebrate this important birthday, despite Metroid has always been one of its most successful franchises.
