Fans of the Metroid Prime games rejoice! Instead of releasing the remade GameCube Metroid Prime games as New Play Control! games, Nintendo has chosen to release a Metroid Prime Trilogy with Retro Studios’  three famous Metroid Prime games for Wii.

The new versions of Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2 will support full widescreen, 480p support and will use the controls that many critics praised in Metroid Prime 3.

The Metroid Prime Trilogy will be sold at the price of a single Wii game, $49,99, and is expected to be released in the United States on August 24th.

    have prime 1, but I can't beat it. No really, I literally can't beat Metroid Prime, the giant bug thing, not, not the game. well I can't beat the game either but that's because I can't beat Metriod Prime, the character. Ive beaten all of the other Metroid Prime, the game, but I can't beat Metroid Prime the Creature. I stuck In Metoid Prime at Metroid Prime. God this is SO CONFUSEING!

      whats the issue?;
      his colors correspond to the weapon to use
      and switch visors when fighting him without the shell to see where he is at, then get in the phazon pool to charge when it appears…

  • veeronic

    hm…. I have all 3… well I could sell them, and bye those, lol

  • No suprise there. The only reason why I refuse to play Metroid Prime 1 and 2 is because of some of the control choices that had me fustrated, like shooting while your stationary and sometimes slow responses when you wanted to move around unlike Metroid Prime 3.

    Woot! Graphically charged fights w spacy pirate dudes and a big ol bug at the end. Let's not forget the Original Dark Samus! I actually have a wide screen tv and the whole trilogy, but whatevs I think I'll take em all to Gamestop and use tha money to buy the whole series in one disk ^_^

      I don't know if they are still buying them where you live but the Game Stop by me doesn't buy or sell GameCube games anymore. :/

    Here's an idea. How about, instead of remaking old games, we make new ones!
    *sigh* It's hopeless.
