Yeah folks, many Nintendo games have reached their 25th birthday. A post for Zelda's celebration can be seen here. Games like Mario and Zelda were celebrated with lots of gadgets and activities like symphony concerts around the world, soundtracks, a special gold Wiimote, a Flipnote Studio competition, and the release of five games – Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time 3D, Four Swords DSiWare, Link’s Awakening DX on the eShop and the original Zelda for the NES portion of the 3DS Ambassador program.
Then again, Nintendo isn’t doing anything special for Metroid’s anniversary sadly. The only mention of said anniversary is Nintendo making a statement of it at Twitter (picture above). Even knowing that Metroid isn't as popular as Zelda or Mario, it shouldn't be left in the dark like now. Even the N64 skip the release of a Metroid game back then!
Have you ever play a Metroid game? What do you think about this?
