Summary

The Space Pirates, merciless agents of the evil Mother Brain, have stolen the last Metroid from a research station, and once again Mother Brain threatens the safety of the galaxy.

Samus Aran must don her awesome array of high-tech weaponry to retrieve the deadly Metroid hidden deep within the cave-riddled planet Zebes. Super Metroid features excellent graphics, with a huge variety of enemies and worlds to explore.

The side-view action will be familiar to many players, only now there are new weapons and items, including the Grappling Beam, which allows Samus to swing across large chasms, and the X-Ray Scope, which reveals secret passages.

it's commonly said that Japan sold poorly in Japan compared to the west, so what's the deal?

For all the love and attention this game got (it deserves it), im surprised it didnt sell better. I thought it would be in the top five at least. Shocked that Metroid 2 beat it, that game sucked IMHO

@PearlJam I agree. I remember when I first played MP1 and got the space jump and tried to do it but when I found out it was just double jump and I was like WTF! You can't skip stuff like in the 2d ones and make your own challenges and I was really skillful in those. Yeah, I think you can get the SJ in MP at the beginning but I simply couldn't do it :( Also, no wall jump and that something awesome in the metroid games and with skills and all, well, you know what I mean. Super Metroid is my favorite Metroid game.
