“In the mid-1980s, Nintendo’s Research & Development 1 team started simultaneous development of two games for the Famicom Disk System: Kid Icarus and Metroid. The two games, both released on the same day in 1986, have been called “companion games”, as they shared developers and gameplay elements such as the introduction of the game saving password system in the North American release.
Metroid II: Return of Samus was released for the Nintendo Game Boy in 1991 in North America and 1992 in Japan. It was the first game of the Metroid series whose North American release featured a save system, allowing the player to have three separate save files. Metroid II also established the current “look” of Samus Aran and her Power Suit, namely the bulky look of the Varia Suit upgrade and the visual difference between the “Beam Mode” and “Missile Mode” of Samus’ arm cannon.”
Samus you go girl!
Really cool Samus statue. They had these on play-asia.com. It’s sold out now but when they were in stock I told myself I’ll eventually get it…

This statue was also very limited but available on play-asia.com. It’s so beautiful how it lights up. This is, in my opinion, the most impressive samus statue out there. This too was available and I told myself I’d eventually get it… 🙁
Love this ship. It’s still available on play-asia.com for $199. Or you can always buy it on eBay. It’s on auction now. $51 – 2 days 9 hrs.
