*whenever a new risky metroid game came out, a classic one always came out for backup, incase the metroid fanbase hated the new direction, they would have a classic metroid to play to keep them happy.
*when metriod prime came out, fusion also came out as the classic alternative.
*when metroid prime 2 came out, it was the "classic alternative" game, while metroid prime hunters (which came out about the same time) was the experimental game.
*he suggests that nintendo was originally gonna release metroid dread alongside metroid prime 3 (this could explain the metroid dread reference that was in that game), but they desided against it because the prime sub-series had already proven itself as a game people liked.
take this for what you will.
