After her last mission (from Metroid 2), Samus Aran finds a Metroid offspring just as she was escaping from Planet SR388. Samus Aran reports the metroid larva to the Ceres space station. But as they were studying it, a fearsome dragon, Ridley, exterminates everything except the larva. This is where Samus finds out about the ressurection of Planet Zebeth.

Awesome game for an aging series.
3 August 1999 | by (Planet Zebes) – See all my reviews

Super Metroid is one of the most excellent Super Nintendo adventures of my time. I mean the game was executed so well, that I was amazed when I first played it (a few years after the game was released). I can tell you, it shows wonderful potential of gaming to the limit. It's creative, thought provoking, and fun. Shigeru Miyamoto is the Steven Spielberg of video games. While Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear) is the Akira Kurosawa of video games.
