We mentioned quite some time ago there were rumours Nintendo and Retro Studios would be releasing an updated Metroid package containing all three games (Metroid Prime
, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
), but the official line from Nintendo has finally come through.
"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," says Nintendo of America executive VP of sales and marketing, Cammie Dunaway. "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."
There's no word on an Aussie release date just yet, but it will hit the US this August, so we shouldn't be too far behind. The trilogy will release on one disc with a single menu system tying all three games together. The Achievement system that was introduced to the Wii entrant, Corruption, has also been applied to the first two games along with widescreen support.
As a massive fan of all three games, I'm really looking forward to this Wii release - finally something hardcore from Nintendo, Now all we need is that Kid Icarus announcement...
