Acclaimed First-Person Adventure Series Gets Updated Wii Remote Controls and Enhanced Presentation

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Your local movie theater is no longer the only place to find a blockbuster trilogy. With today’s release of Metroid™ Prime: Trilogy for the Wii™ video game console, Nintendo is offering a spectacular, all-in-one action saga, combining all three critically acclaimed Metroid Prime games on one special-edition disk with updated Wii motion controls and wide-screen presentation. Delivering an unforgettable experience to series newcomers and veterans alike, Metroid Prime: Trilogy carries a suggested retail price of $49.99.

Each copy of Metroid Prime: Trilogy contains three games: Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2 Echoes and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. The first two games, originally released for Nintendo GameCube™, have been updated for play using the innovative Wii motion-control system that debuted with Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. These controls bring a new level of immersion and freedom to these award-winning games. Also, for the first time ever, all three games are rendered in a vivid 16:9 wide-screen presentation. Players can now select the game they want to play through a unified main menu that ties together all three adventures, and gain access to bonus materials through a new in-game unlockables system.

Jedi Battles, Marvelous Bubbles and Frantic Underground Action

Faraway galaxies and otherworldly fun are within easy reach, thanks to the latest downloadable game offerings from Nintendo. If the recent Virtual Console™ debut of Super Star Wars™ had you cheering, you’ll be doubly pleased to see its action-packed sequel in this week’s lineup. Speaking of sequels, you’ll also find a new WiiWare™ title that puts a fresh spin on an “underground” favorite. Meanwhile, Nintendo DSiWare™ fans will discover a puzzle game that truly pops.

“Varia Suite contains a collection of MM tunes rerecorded and “redone a bit” by the members of MM live. At over 50 minutes, It marks the first official release by Metroid Metal, has fresh production with a new take on some songs, and will be released under Silent Uproar Records”

Thanks to Scott for the news tip!

A second Assassin’s Creed was rumored to be in development for DS after the title showed up on a retailer listing, but Ubisoft denied its existence a number of months ago. Yet even though the company still has yet to make an official announcement, the ESRB has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery is heading to the handheld. The rating description for the game also has the first details for Discovery, which we’ve posted below.

“This is a side-scrolling action game, set during the Renaissance, in which players assume the role of an assassin fighting against an enemy group known as the Templars. Players traverse rooftops and alleyways, employ stealth attacks to kill targets, and engage in combat by using swords and throwing daggers. The stealth attacks represent the most intense instances of violence and usually require players to sneak up on targets unnoticed. When players stab enemies in the back or chest, a “blade unsheathing” noise can be heard as the target falls to the ground and disappears.”

Capcom not commenting on Okamiden

Posted on 8 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii | 2 Comments | 0 Likes

Yesterday, Siliconera found a trademark for Okamiden, something which seems like some sort of sequel to Okami. However, all that can really be done with the name is pretty much guesswork. Capcom isn’t being too helpful either, as you can see by the statement below.

“Nothing I can say here. Sorry.” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

On the bright side, there is something you can take away from Mr. Svensson’s words. If Okamiden was nothing more than a random trademark, I don’t understand why he would be shying away from commenting on it. Also, you may remember that Capcom teased a mind-blowing sequel a few weeks back. Could Okamiden be that game? Like I said earlier, all we can do is speculate at this point, but hopefully Okamiden will turn out to be something that will please fans if it turns out to be a new title.
