Metroid Prime Hunters Official Storyline
In the most distant reaches of space, beyond the territories controlled by the Galactic Federation, is
the Tetra Galaxy, once home to a mighty race known as the Alimbics. An advanced civilization, peaceful,
prosperous and powerful, the Alimbics maintained stability over the region forcefully but judiciously. They
reigned over a vast region known as the Alimbic Cluster. One day, perhaps thousands of years ago, perhaps
tens of thousands, they simply disappeared, leaving behind artifacts, all scattered across the Alimbic
Cluster, all protected by a lethal arsenal of the Alimbics' most advanced weaponry.

Now, it's a race against time to see which bounty hunter will triumph over the others, who will discover
the secret behind this promise of "ultimate power."

help of Samus Aran. Her mission: to discover the truth about this mysterious message, to protect against a
potential threat, and to keep the Alimbics' ultimate power from falling into the wrong hands.
