    Metroid Prime Trilogy coming to NA on August 24!

    [​IMG]

    Unlike in Japan, the American Wii owners won't be getting New Play Control Metroid Prime games, instead they'll be getting the METROID PRIME TRILOGY pack, with the 3 Metroid Prime games in a single disc!

    Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime Echoes and Metroid Prime Corruption can all be accessed from the same hub, from outside the games, you can also access control and saving options common to the 3 games and the Echoes local multiplayer mode.

    Aside from 480p wide-screen mode and Wii controls, the first 2 games have nothing new.

    The Trilogy will be available in North America on August 24th, for $49,99.

    Well, that Sounds good...and the price is realy nice [​IMG]. Sadly I guess this will be a DL-DVD (Metroid Prime 3 is alone a Disc, and the others are probably around 1GB), with which I have problems [​IMG]...well, let's wait and see [​IMG].

    There was a rumour last year that this was gonna happen, and I'm amazed that it was actually true. Ok for me this is a pirate seeing that I paid full price for each of the three (download for the Wiimakes) but its one hell of a bargain for those who may even only have one of the games. I'm sure people will still bitch that Echoes isn't online but seriously, the multiplayer on that wasn't good anyway.

    This is really unlike modern Nintendo.

    Whoa, that's awesome. But seriously, I had to start playing the patched Japanese version of New Play Control! Metroid Prime 2 days before this is announced :\. Maybe I'll wait to play Metroid Prime 2 on this and see what it's like.

    It's meant to be on one disc dude, plus it's far too cool to be made by Nintendo XD. It's probably a mock-up by someone, either that or it's a fake.

    How would we know, if it hasn't been released yet? If it's just a normal MP3, like the one you'd buy on a store until now, then it will probably work with existing save files.

    Anyway, this is great news. Can hardly wait. I've been waiting to play MP2 and MP3 for years now. Never had the opportunity to play them after beating MP1.

    Not really, thats practically a totally different game. The Prime series is pretty much a first person space Zelda game.

    It does not... Play Super and we`ll talk [​IMG]

    I love the idea of having these games on one disc. I really hope that they integrate something like a seamless transition between the games, so it feels like one big game on many planets [​IMG]
