Metroid Fusion

Metroid Fusion  was released in North America, Europe, and Australia in November 2002, and in Japan in February 2003. The game is the fourth main installment in the Metroid series. Metroid Fusion was developed by Nintendo Research & Development 1, the same development team that created the 1994 video game Super Metroid for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, which visually bears a resemblance to Metroid Fusion. Elements that are similar in both games include the gameplay, screen layout, and controls, albeit with minor enhancements.

The game was given near-universal acclaim, receiving an aggregated score of 92% from Metacritic. Praise focused on the action-oriented gameplay, while criticism targeted what was perceived as a lack of inspiration in the game. Metroid Fusion received several awards, including Handheld Game of the Year at the 2002 Interactive Achievement Awards, Best Game Boy Advance Adventure Game from IGN, and Best Action Game on Game Boy Advance from GameSpot. In the United States, the game sold 199,723 copies in its first month with revenues of $5,590,768, making it the month’s tenth bestselling game.
