30 years ago today, Samus Aran set off on her first adventure on the NES, where she explores the depths of Zebes to stop the Space Pirates from exploiting Metroid lifeforms for their own devious agenda. Since then, she has been an influential game character due to the representation of her gender. She is independent, strong, and a badass bounty hunter who has even wiped out entire species and destroyed planets!
To celebrate 30 years of the series, I produced this little retrospect video which showcases some of her best moments over three decade run of the series. Let’s hope it doesn’t end there and there are many more years to come. Enjoy!
