A cryptic transmission
Video footage from an unknown source indicates that the deadly X parasite—thought to have been eradicated—may still live.
The Galactic Federation dispatches a special unit consisting of seven E.M.M.I. robots to the remote planet ZDR, believed to be the source of the transmission. Soon after arriving on ZDR, the whole unit vanishes.
As the only one immune to the X parasite, intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran is sent in to find out what happened.
Shortly after landing, a mysterious foe traps Samus deep below the surface of this dangerous world.
Now, Samus must hunt or be hunted as she makes her way through a labyrinth of enemies to reach the surface.
