How is this topic not made yet?

I'll just drop this here for all of those that have never experienced this series of games before. To me this is the greatest trilogy of any kind gaming movies or whatever else you can think of. I envy those experiencing this game for the first time!

I really hope this is a sign that someone is working on a Prime style Metroid game for the Wii U! I can dream can't I?

Even if you own the original games like I do, this download is highly recommended. You get the best version of three amazing games for €10. Hopefully, Nintendo does this kind of things more often from now on.

And yes, it's very probable that we get a new Metroid game soon, although I really hope it's like Prime and not like Other M.

This is just the best value you can get on any Nintendo console for that amount of money.

As someone who tends to loathe first-person games, I've had the line "but at least try Metroid Prime!" thrown at me quite often. I'd like to do it, and it seems now is as good a time as there'll ever be... and yet there's the wiimote requirement. Yuck.

I can overlook one huge turn-off in order to enjoy a critically acclaimed game, but that makes it two for me.

Should I buy this or Meme Run?

Meme Run, this is just another Nintendo re-re-release with no additional upgrades. Meme Run is a new experience and has tons of replayability.

It shouldn't be played any other way. Wiimote controls are excellent for this game.

Agreed, these games have the greatest FPS controls of all time and that's that bottom line because Ryno said so!

I bought Metroid Prime Trilogy in 2011. I thought I would never find it since it became rare so fast and was very surprised when I saw a brand new copy of it for 30€. I'll get the digital version just to support Wii games on eShop and to be able to play Prime without a disc

@ricklongo: Wiimote + Nunchuk combo is the best setup for FPS games. I hate dual analog and while I like keyboard + mouse combo, Wiimote (in my opinion) is just so much faster and precise. It feels very natural.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

Can someone point me to info on the filesize of this?

I don't usually like motion controls but controlling Metroid Prime with a Wii Remote and a nunchuk is wonderful. Even for other shooters like Goldeneye Wii if you set it up properly, it's a much better way to play them. Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition was also great because of the Wii Remote.

@Spoony_Tech @Late @Ryno Well, I do hate motion controls, but the wiimotes have the additional burden of not being rechargeable. I hate having to charge separate batteries all the time, especially because electrical sockets are kind of an in-demand commodity at my apartment. I feel that if Nintendo released a wiimote that was rechargeable via USB, like the Pro Controller is, I'd be much more willing to use them to clear my Wii backlog a bit.

Either way, reading all this makes me a bit more interested in taking advantage of the ridiculously low release price. 10 bucks seems like a steal for three full-lenght, critically-acclaimed games. I'm starting to feel like I won't be able to resist the urge.

FWIW, I have one rechargeable original Nintendo Wiimote. Charges very fast.

Is it only motion controls or can I use the Classic Controller on these?
