Nintendo’s live show of Metroid: Samus Returns with Series Producer Yoshio Sakamoto and Creative Director Jose Luis Márquez from MercurySteam gave us some interesting information on some new story content for the upcoming game called Chozo Memories. These memories seem to serve as an incentive for players to complete the game thoroughly.
Yoshio Sakamoto: In Metroid: Samus Returns, by meeting certain conditions you can unlock a number of visuals called the Chozo Memories. These tell the story of what happened on the planet SR388, as well as what the Chozo did. They may reveal a surprising secret that nobody could have imagined.
Jose Luis Márquez went on to add that players will be rewarded for finding all secrets and exploring the whole planet.
Any additional Metroid lore is always welcome, and we can’t wait to find out more about the Chozo! Thankfully, we won’t have to wait too much longer as Metroid: Samus Returns will launch on the 15th of September.
