The Metroid Pocket Puzzle is a Japan-exclusive sliding puzzle game released alongside the original Metroid in 1986. Who manufactured it, whether it was Nintendo or another company, is unknown. Today, it is an extremely rare collector's item. The puzzle comes in a resealable box inside a bag, and features 20 pieces, with the puzzle's design image being based on the game's European boxart. It is only one of two Metroid puzzles, preceding by more than thirty years a licensed jigsaw puzzle based on Metroid: Samus Returns.
