DF Retro: Metroid Prime - Nintendo's first-person masterpiece

Recommended Posts

In this week's episode, John Linneman examines Nintendo's phenomenal Metroid Prime. With the series originally designed as a 2D platformer, the Metroid titles enjoyed huge success on NES, Game Boy and SNES - but there was no Metroid title for Nintendo's first true 3D console, the N64. In truth, it seemed that the platform holder just didn't know how to evolve the franchise.

A collaboration between Nintendo and the then newly formed Retro Studios, Metroid Prime is a technical masterpiece for the GameCube - a 60fps mostly first-person adventure that sees the platform holder dare to radically evolve the franchise to make the best of new technology. It's a fascinating story and one we're happy to share with you.
