As part of Nintendo’s recent move to bring its more iconic Game Boy and Game Boy Advance titles to the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service, the company has announced the move Metroid Fusion is on the way The Game Boy Advance classic will be available to all subscribers from Thursday, March 9.

Originally released in 2002, Metroid Fusion follows famed bounty hunter Samus Aran as she explores the surface of the planet SR388 in search of parasitic organisms called X. This 2D action game is generally considered one of the best in the Metroid series. At GameSpot review Metroid Fusion, we stated that its “extremely responsive controls, gorgeous graphics, and great sound make Fusion one of the best action games for the Game Boy Advance.”

The surprise announcement of Metroid Fusion followed Metroid Prime Remake reveal last month. And, taking into account Metroid Dread also recently appeared in the Metroid series, we’re crossing our fingers that this all means that the long-awaited Metroid Prime 4 will arrive sooner rather than later. It was announced back in 2017, the fourth installment in the series, has been in and out of development several times over the past six years. However, development on the game was resumed in 2019 after producer Kensuke Tanabe, who also served in the role for the first three games and Metroid Prime: Hunters, decided to return to the series.
