Two classics in one.
A video released by Unseen64 – a site dedicated to archiving images, footage, and information about unreleased video game projects – claims this anonymous source formerly of Retro Studios confirmed the Super Nintendo classic Super Metroid was once included and playable in Metroid Prime via a link between the Game Boy Advance and the Nintendo GameCube.
According to this source, Super Metroid was implemented into the game using a third-party emulator. Since Nintendo did not condone the use of an emulator they did not own in one of their published games, the SNES platformer was completely removed before Metroid Prime’s launch in 2002.
The most recent Metroid game from Nintendo was Metroid: Other M, released for the Nintendo Wii console in 2010. Read IGN’s Metroid: Other M review to learn more.
