If you’ve been following our social media pages closely, you’re probably already quite familiar with our new pins, which drop through our store today! These pins have been a VERY long time coming – since November of last year is when I started collaborating behind the scenes with badass swag designer Beast Wreck on them. There’s something about Beast Wreck’s style that really captivated me, and I believed he was the only person who could realize my vision. After the designs were completed, I then had to wait a full two months to get them back from China (btw, ALL enamel pins are made in China, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise).

Trust me when I say I am more than enthused to allow you to buy them. But don’t wait. I only had 100 made of each design.

We hope you appreciate these pins as much as I do – I am beyond satisfied with how they turned out. They came out more beautiful than I could imagine. Photos truly don’t do them justice. The polished black nickel that they’re made out of needs to be seen with your own eyes in a way that normal photos just can’t capture.

As always, we deeply appreciate your generosity and support of our website. Head on over to the Metroid Database Store to see the pins. As of this writing, we have stock of everything else in our store still available, so while you’re there, get some other stuff too! See you next mission!



Hey everyone! It’s MARCH MADNESS! Starting today all through this month, you can use the discount code MORPHBALL to get 20% off you order through our store.  We’re doing this as both a thank you to our followers and celebrating the 24th anniversary of Super Metroid which is the 19th. Enjoy!



Metroid: Samus Returns does it again! Samus took home the gold  at the D.I.C.E. awards this year, taking the title of “Handheld Game of the Year”, making MercurySteam the first Spanish development studio to win such award. Mercury Steam took to twitter to announce their win and to thank fans for the support. This is another big win in list of many for MercurySteam, as Metroid: Samus Returns has received many accolades since its release. 

Metroid: Samus Returns was nominated alongside Monster Hunter Stories (3ds Capcom), Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia (3ds Nintendo), Etrian Odyssey V (3ds, ATLUS), and Dragon Quest VIII (3ds Square Enix/Nintendo).


Congratulations to MercurySteam on their big win!
