Metroid Prime Trilogy Coming to Wii in August
Samus is making a return to the Wii. Nintendo announced today the Metroid Prime Trilogy, a new three-game collection for the Wii that bundles all three Metroid Prime games on a single disc. 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. The Metroid Prime Trilogy will be available exclusively for Wii on August 24, 2009 for $49.99.
“Metroid Prime Trilogy puts the best first-person adventures all in one place, with a host of new additions that make these three timeless titles more engaging than ever,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales and Marketing. “A great deal of care and detail has gone into Metroid Prime Trilogy, providing longtime fans with new ways to experience the games they love.”
All three games now reside on a single disc. Players can access the game they want from a unified main menu that ties together all three adventures. Through a new unlockables system, players can gain access to in-game rewards such as music and artwork by accomplishing objectives across all three games. Metroid Prime Trilogy is developed by Retro Studios and Nintendo, the same developers that created the original games for the Nintendo GameCube and Wii systems. Game Freaks 365 gave Metroid Prime 2: Echoes a 9.2 out of 10 and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption a 9.7.
