Metroid: Zero Mission is a Game Boy Advance remake of the original Metroid, released in 2004. The game serves as a retelling of the story of the original Metroid, with new gameplay sequences, cutscenes, and a graphical style and gameplay more similar to Super Metroid.



The full story of Samus Aran's first mission finally unfolds...

The first Metroid game just scratched the surface of the cataclysmic events on planet Zebes, and at long last the rest of the tale has come to light. Experience the first of Samus's legendary adventures through the all-new cut-scenes and action sequences as the bounty hunter races through the deeps toward her showdown with the leader of the space pirates. But will the end of Mother Brain really mean the end of the story...?

  • Get lost on Zebes! The mazelike Space Pirate fortress has been entirely rebuilt with features like Morph Ball launchers and zip lines, and it crawls with vicious new enemies and bosses.
  • Arm yourself! Use weapons and equipment drawn from the entire Metroid series–like the Speed Booster and Morph Ball–and new power ups like the Power Grip as Samus hunts Kraid, Ridley, and the Metroids.
