The Landing Site is the small cave in which Samus Aran crash-lands at the Temple Grounds of Aether because of the environmental storms of this world.

DescriptionEdit

The Landing Site is the first and last room seen in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. The room's name is odd, considering it was not intended to be Samus' point of landing, nor does it seem optimised by the Luminoth for Ships.

The room contains a variety of different height pillars, with glowing red crystals attached to them on differing sides. These were once apparently a means of energy conversion and distribution, but have since fallen in to disrepair due to lack of maintenance, and are now only decorative. However, one statue has a purple crystal, and will move from its position to serve as a platform to a higher area of the room, if hit by a shot of Light matter. The body of the Keybearer M-Dhe can be found here, on the ledge which connects to Service Access.

Also in the room is a form of gear design moulded into the floor, but this too has no other obvious purpose other than decoration. Originally, two Luminoth Webbing clusters block access to the next room on ground level, but once they have been removed by Samus, they do not return.

At the end of the game, auto-repair functions on Samus' ship are complete, and she returns to the room to board the ship and leave Aether. Before she does so, she is seen removing her Varia Suit, and posing for a brief second in her Zero Suit. This can only be seen if 75% of pickups are acquired.

If viewed with the Dark Visor, a Flying Ing Cache's silhouette could be seen near the Gunship.

Landing Site's Dark Aether counterpart was the Defiled Shrine.
