A Bookmark, or Map Pin, is a Map feature in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption and Metroid: Samus Returns. It takes on a different appearance and function in both games, and is used to mark a room so it can be revisited for any reason, such as to return to an item that cannot be acquired the first time it has been found due to lacking the necessary upgrade.
Metroid Prime 3: CorruptionEdit
Individual rooms in the Map can be bookmarked. To do so, a room must be selected in the map. A bookmark prompt will then appear, which will color the room's map hologram green. These Bookmarks can be removed at any time, but do not appear on the minimap. This feature is not mentioned in any tutorials or the game's manual or strategy guide, so only the most observant will know to use this feature.
Metroid: Samus ReturnsEdit
In Samus Returns, Map Pins can be placed over rooms in the map. These appear as upside down triangles. Up to ten different pins (colored red, yellow, green, blue and purple) can be set on the map at once. Pressing on a set pin, and dragging it to the bottom of the screen, or over the trash bin button will remove it from the map and allow it to be used elsewhere later, if desired.
