DescriptionMetroid Fusion is the direct sequel to 1994's Super Metroid. The game begins as Samus Aran is sent back to planet SR388 to assist a Biologic Space Labs investigation team. While on the planet's surface, Samus is infected by a previously unknown parasite, known as X. The X parasite nearly kills Samus, but fortunately she is saved by a vaccine made from the Metroid she saved on Zebes. Shortly thereafter, an explosion rocks the Biologic Space Labs. Now Samus must investigate the Space Labs, which are orbiting SR388.
This game is similar, in terms of gameplay and structure, to the classic side-scrolling Metroid games. The game consists of a large inter-connected environment. As Samus learns a variety of new moves and weapons, she is able to explore new areas of the Space Lab and unlock the secrets of the X parasite.

1001 Video GamesThe Game Boy Advance version of Metroid Fusion appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
EndingIn the ending, Samus asks herself how her ship could've gotten her off the planet when it could only be operated manually. The ship's CPU then responds and says "They lent me a hand". The game then shows a picture of the Etecoons (the little gremlins from Super Metroid that teach you how to wall jump), and the Dachola (the ostrich-looking creature that teaches you how to Super Jump, also from Super Metroid).
ReferencesWhen you fight Ridley and when you're escaping the station at the end, the music that plays is the boss/escape tune from Super Metroid.
