Metroid Prime Trilogy Compiles Three Classics for the Price of One


Coming up on August 24th, Nintendo will release Metroid Prime Trilogy for Wii, an all-in-one compilation of GameCube classics Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and the Wii’s own Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.

Metroid Prime Trilogy isn’t just a straight compilation though. Both the original Metroid Prime and Echoes have been enhanced with the new Wii features Corruption brought to the series, including the smooth, point-and-shoot motion control scheme, wide-screen presentation and an in-game rewards system for unlocking bonus content like concept art and music by completing goals in all three games.

“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 & 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.”

Again, Metroid Prime Trilogy will ship in North America on August 24th, and it’ll only cost $49.99. Can’t beat that value.
