Nintendo on Metroid Fusion: “While on a mission to the Metroids’ home planet, bounty hunter Samus Aran is attacked by a deadly parasite. Cured by Metroid DNA, Samus is bestowed with unique new powers from her old adversary, but must face a new enemy: the ‘X’ parasite. Metroid Fusion blends a captivating original story with intense platform action and exploration in the classic Metroid mould.”

Nintendo on Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga: “The Mario Bros. team up in this hilarious action-packed role-playing game. When an evil witch steals Princess Peach’s voice, Mario and Luigi must venture beyond the Mushroom Kingdom, joined by an unlikely ally: Bowser!
