The Metroid Legacy is a feature included on the Metroid Prime section of the Nintendo GameCube Preview Disc DVD. As implied by the title, it shows records on games released prior to these titles.
Similar to the The Metroid Chronicle that would later be featured in the Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Bonus Disc, The Metroid Legacy is an interactive timeline of all five Metroid games released prior to Metroid Prime in preparation for that game's release. Each game can be selected for information. Unlike in the Chronicle, however, with the exception of the entry for Metroid Prime, all of the entries had unedited background sounds and music, and there is no scrolling feature for the text.
Each game has three pages detailing the game's synopsis, the game logo, and a screen with gameplay clips (Metroid II: Return of Samus is given a color palette). With the exception of the entry for Metroid Prime, all the entries gameplay clips do not have a specific soundtrack, instead having the footage play with unedited audio.
