It's all three Metroid Prime titles in one amazing collection!

Metroid™ Prime 3: Corruption set a new standard for first-person motion controls in video games. Now it's bringing those controls to the rest of the celebrated series, allowing players to experience the entire Metroid Prime story arc with the peerless precision of the Wii Remote. Nintendo announces Metroid Prime Trilogy, a new premium three-game collection for the Wii console that bundles all three landmark Metroid Prime games onto one disc and revamps the first two installments with intuitive Wii Remote controls, wide-screen presentation and other enhancements. Metroid Prime Trilogy will be available exclusively for Wii on Aug. 24 at a suggested retail price of $49.99.

Each game maintains its original storyline and settings, but now Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes let players use their Wii Remote to aim with precision as heroine Samus Aran. Based on the breakthrough control system that debuted in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, these new Wii controls bring an entirely new level of immersion and freedom to these milestone games.

A must-play anthology

It took eight years, a group of Texans and a whole new perspective for Samus Aran, space bounty hunter extraordinaire, to return to consoles after Super Metroid. Seven years and three acclaimed games later, Metroid Prime Trilogy puts Samus' Phazon...

Pretty much the best deal since "Super Mario Allstars". You get the full price game Corruption plus two "New Play Control!"-games for the price of a single game. Also, two of the very best GameCube games combined with the awesome controls of Corruption alone is a very good reason to get this. And the multiplayer mode is still there. I'm really looking forward to this, it's an instant must-buy.

So, I hope, this will be released in Europe, too. But since they haven't announced both Metroid Prime games for the European NPC series, I think the chances are good.

I'll be happy to see this Trilogy, I still don't have Prime 3 yet, so its a good way to get it and as well as get updated versions of two of my favorite games of all time. Funny thing that Japan got screwed with two NPC games instead of the trilogy.



iSonic said:

I don't really need this considering I own all three of them already. I'll pass.



Modern_Legend said:

i only want this to play the multplayer in 2, i dont think thats enuf tho since i have 2 already for gamecube and dont like how gc did it



colmtheperson said:

Must get into this game series... Ders only so long you can play legend of zelda for.... Though it is a long long time!



Pawtrick said:

Still says amount of players "yet to be determined" on Nintendo.com... could either mean no multiplayer, or online multiplayer? (I can dream).



Pawtrick said:

**Update** So I traded in my old Prime games and bought the Trilogy, and yes it has the multiplayer from Prime 2. Still weird that on the box it says number of players "1"...



Iapetus said:

Best value in video game history. Prime 1 and Echoes feel like completely new games; you can't go back to gamecube pad. This is definitely the new killer app for Wii.



ToneDeath said:

Just got mine, but it's in a standard plastic case with a card slipcase. Is the tin cased version not coming to Europe or did I not look hard enough?



Klapaucius said:

I've got Prime and Echoes on GCN, and already got Corruption on Wii, so as awesome as this is, I'm in no hurry to get it. I'll wait until the price is down.
Still, for anyone who doesn't own or has never played Prime and Echoes, this is an amazing set and an utter bargain.



nice_shirt said:

I have these games already and was going to pass but I'm so glad that I didn't. The new play controls makes it feel like playing these games for the first time again. I will be playing this collection for years.



JeffFury said:

I always liked Metroid for its fantasy aspect. Everyone knows girls cant fight aliens/monsters. Also, they take waay too much time doing thier makeup and hair before they even go to the damn grocery store.



Varia01 said:

Aw come on! This game is expensive, and I'm jealous of all you other gamers! Even this didn't show Call of Duty fans, Halo fans, Lost Planet Fans, etc. that Wii is the best system to play first-person games on?!? And when is Retro gonna create a Metroid Wii U game??? jealous... jealous... I'm gonna go steal from Gamestop, just kidding. Well, good thing I have Metroid Prime 3 and its aliean controls! NO game series is more awesome than Metroid Prime!!!

Just picked this up at a local GameStop over the weekend. It's taking me back to when I played it originally on the GameCube with a VGA adapter. A lot of fun but I found the aiming to be more difficult even when you lock on. I still like it and will most likely just have to get used to it. (it's hard to hit small targets from far away)
