NXpress Podcast 64: 30 Years of ‘Metroid’ plus more ‘Pokemon Go’



Metroid deserves all and any praise it has received over the years, if only for launching a winning formula and one of Nintendo’s greatest franchises. From the NES debut to the Super Nintendo classic, to the underrated handheld entries, and the 3D debut with the Primeseries – the Metroid games have, for the most part, been providing fans with countless hours of high-quality entertainment. This week, Goomba Stomp editors Mike Worby and Michael Riser join us to help celebrate Metroid’s 30 year anniversary by looking back at the original and the SNES masterpiece, Super Metroid. All this and more!
