There’s a slew of amazing Metroid articles out there and these KOTAKU articles in particular deserve to be revisited. Even though they were written in 2013, they still stand out as some of the best explorations of the Metroid lore to date with sourced references to distinguish lore from speculation and credited artwork that bring the (often understated, yet complex) Metroid story to life.
This is an amazing read and a quite a feat of exceptional detective work that could only come from a hyper-dedicated Metroid fan, Mama Robotnik.
Nothing beats the passion of a true fan writing about something they love. That’s what you’re about to see here: one of the richest, most amazing tributes to a great gaming series that we’ve ever run on Kotaku.
