DISCUSSION

This week, Captain Spike and First Mate Slagkick discuss Nintendo’s flagship sci-fi franchise, Metroid, on the dawn of its 30th anniversary! From its beginnings as a 2D platformer focusing on exploration, to celebrated sequels, to a successful shift to 3D and first person POV, and now an uncertain future – the Metroid series has been an interesting part of Nintendo’s history as the company continuously struggles to find a wide audience for the games while simultaneously experimenting with the formula. The Podcast Pirates discuss the impact of Metroid on the broader gaming scene, including as a formative element of the “Metroidvania,” and Samus Aran’s notable status as one of gaming’s earliest female protagonists.
