Metroid Prime 3 update: Aurora = Mother Brain
The MP3 Preview Channel with the trailer entitled "Aurora" shows an explanation of the origins of Mother Brain:
Galactic Federation Scientists announced 20 years ago (20 years before Metroid Prime 3) the invention of an Organic Super Computer known as the "Aurora Unit". Thousands have been built since that time. Originally used for scientific purposes they were later used in Government, Business and the Military roles. They are given Male, Female or gender neutral persona's depending on the needs of the staff of the facility they are to serve in. A vast network links all existing Aurora's allowing them access to a tremendous database without fear.
Will we be fighting one of these "Aurora's" in Metroid Prime 3? I would hope so, since they went to all the trouble of explaining that there are thousands of them out there. It appears that in the beginning of Metroid Prime 3 the "Aurora Unit" in the Command Ship Olympus that Samus boards is corrupted by a Virus and the Space Pirates are behind it. Many connections are starting to unravel as the Prime Saga nears completion.
More updates to the channel will take place on August 16th.
