About

The first installment of the immensely successful Metroid series
introduces us to the hideous title creatures and the slick, cybernetic
bounty hunter Samus Aran. As Samus™, your mission is to penetrate the
space pirates' home planet, Zebes, and keep them from destroying the
galaxy with the dangerous life forms known as Metroids. Metroid has all
the high-tech weaponry, creepy tunnels and crawly alien creatures that
anyone could ask for. With its deep and complex game play, excellent
music and a rare sense of setting, it establishes a frightening ambience
that will haunt and entertain you for a very long time.
This classic game is part of the Virtual Console service, which brings you great games created for consoles such as NES™, Super NES™ and Game Boy™ Advance. We hope you'll enjoy the new features (including off-TV play) that have been added to this title. See more Virtual Console games for Wii U.
