Didn't feel like making a new thread for just this.
I know Metroid Prime 3 is the last of the Prime subseries, but IGN has a little hook that indicates it is something more. See it with the spoiler button:
It's inaccurate from the getgo--this is not Aran's 3rd mission, there were many before the Prime series (to wit, MPH). What about the other part? Does anyone know if that's an error as well? Does she die or retire? Obviously there have been other hunters present in both of the most recent Metroid games. Is Retro prepping a new lead character?
If I were that psyched about the game, I would have avoided this kind of info because I hate even small spoilers, but as it is now I'll end up picking it up for a bargain used ebay price, so I'm not that worried about preserving the surprise.
