«©NCSX» NCS recalls the overbearing negativity surrounding Metroid Prime when it was first disclosed that the game would be a 3D first-person shooter. Fevered Metroid devotees cursed the House of Nintendo and vowed revenge for ruining the franchise. Remember, this was way before the game was even released and yet revenge was being plotted.

  When Metroid Prime finally launched stateside in late 2002, NCS was prepared for the consumer backlash and the vitriol since there was no way the game could possibly be good. We waited. One day passed and then another. The backlash never came. Metroid Prime silenced the naysayers by being a worthy successor to its forebears and the gaming world was better for it.

   Nintendo has already released three Gamecube remakes on the Wii and they've all been fine revamps. The Metroid Prime upgrade features Nunchuk and Wii Remote control where the nunchuk is used for Samus' movement and the remote manipulates an onscreen targeting cursor. Similar to all previous Wii de Asobu releases, the game is a complete revamp with updated graphics and sound.

Region Lock-out

   Please note Japanese Wii games will not boot on USA or European Wii consoles due to the inherent region-lockout on Japanese Wii game discs. A Freeloader (and a Wii with 3.2U firmware) is required to play Japanese Wii games.
