This month's featured article is the X-Parasite. This was chosen by myself as there were no suggestion made. Don't forget to to suggest A class articles on the Nomination page if you want them to be featured for a month.
I chose this article to celebrate the upcoming release of Metroid Dread next month. The X-Parasite is the main antagonist of Metroid Fusion, the game that happens just before Dread chronologically.

She is drawn here by a mysterious transmition showing an individual parasite still alive after the events of Fusion. Since Samus is the only creature in the universe that is a predator of the X due to her Metroid DNA, she…

His grandson Linebeck III is a side character in The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, and his name is given to an island in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the W…

I decided to choose this article to celebrate the announcement of Metroid Dread during E3 last month. This article is about the Metroid species in general and not just the Metroid Larvae that we are used to think as Metroid. The article explain the life cycle of those Metroid larvae as well as any unique specimen and subspecies seen in the franchise.
