The cake, photographed by Ander Amo del Ser.

A cake modeled after an Alpha Metroid and Samus Aran was created by Digital Development Management for MercurySteam, to celebrate the worldwide release of Metroid: Samus Returns. Numerous photos of the cake, and over a dozen accompanying cupcakes, were posted to social media by MercurySteam staff in attendance.

The Alpha Metroid was larger than Samus, and both cakes were placed on black pedestals that may or may not have been part of the cake. The game's banner was wrapped around the Alpha Metroid's pedestal. The Samus figure has her left arm outstretched toward the Metroid and is simplified from her in-game design, featuring a cross-shaped Visor, no ridges on the shoulders and no lights on her chestplate. DDM also created over a dozen chocolate cupcakes with black wrapping paper and whipped turquoise and dark purple icing, as well as a round chip depicting the game's key art.
