Why is Jennifer Hale not credited as Samus for the Metroid Prime games?

@TechnoSyndrome It's disputed that she ever voiced her to begin with. I have a very solid hunch on who the real VA is and I've been spending the past few months trying to find a decent lead for someone I can contact to confirm it. I've made some pretty good progress in that regard.

@NCZ Didn't she do an interview with Nintendo Power though?

@TechnoSyndrome Yeah, I have the issue, and while I took it at face value at first, a more critical evaluation made me notice the problem. She never says anything related to Samus specifically beyond vague statements that can apply to any character, whereas she DOES go in-depth when talking about her other characters. There's more information on this in a forum thread I made about this a few months back:

The other big thing is that the narrator in a prototype version of the opening sequence is seemingly the same voice actress as Samus, and she sounds nothing like Hale.

Lastly, an "Audrey Peterson" is credited under the game's "Additional Contributors". Audrey Peterson is the name for one of the voice actresses in Ultima IX - a game that was made and recorded in Austin Texas, the same place Metroid Prime was made. Her character sounds a lot like Samus's grunts and this narrator. I'm very sure she is the correct voice actress but as I said, I'm working to find an avenue that will bump this up to 100%. I have found a couple of potential sources over the past few weeks, so I ask to please be patient while I get the situation sorted out.

Al├Ęsia Glidewell should return as Zero Suit Samus (Or a common fan name: Zamus) and Krystal in SSB4.
