Samus Aran

Samus Aran

A tribute piece to Samus Aran, one of the great heroines of video gaming.

Samus first appeared in Metroid on the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986.

One of the things that made Samus a stand-out character was that it was not immediately conveyed whether she was male ore female. The player picked up a game with a character masked in generic space armour and most players simply assumed Samus was a man.

It wasn’t until the end of the game when Samus takes off her helmet to reveal her true identity.

Samus is one of the few video game heroines who seem capable of handling themselves in an outfit other that straps of leather or chain-mail bikinis.

This one is for Samus.
