Just saw this is being released in the US as an all in one disc - is it coming to the UK?
ps - what are you must play games in May / June that would stop you buying this if it came out?? I can't see any released recently that even get me excited at all.....
None of the wii games really excite me tbh. I thought the tennis one looked good but I (stupidly) assumed the game would let you control the movement of your player with a nunchuck and then swing with the wiimote to play your shot. I then realised it is like wii sports tennis where the com moves your player for you. Not quite the same. Tbh I have not played a tennis game that is more fun than super tennis way back on the snes. Now there is a wii make I would love to see
Ah well....fingers crossed for Metroid trilogy
Metroid Prime is one of those games that I'd really love to love...but I just could never take to the first one on the GC so consequently never followed up with either of the sequels. For me, the first one, after being touted as Nintendo's answer to Halo, really never came close to that landmark game. And there seemed an awful lot of backtracking, too - something which I've never enjoyed in a game. But, I still can't resist this urge to try and bring myself to like it. I wish someone could convince me it's worth the effort.
For a bargain price, you will receive 80-plus hours of the best adventuring found on any home consoles in a decade. And the craziest part is that Retro's artists are so good that the Prime titles they released back in 2002 still look better than the majority of Wii efforts. Yeah, these games are still at the cutting-edge on Nintendo consoles.
And for once, Nintendo has paid a little service to the fans because all of these improvements come to you in a collector's edition package -- a gorgeous metal case, translucent slip cover, art booklet and biography on the series -- and for just $49.99, the same price as any old Wii game.
Still no word on a UK release, although I notice it's confirmed to be released in Australia, being PAL territory I guess you could always import if impatient.
A release date of 4th September has been known for a while and online retailers (well Play and Amazon anyway) are still advertising release on this date.
Hopefully you've just missed this or has it been delayed indefinitely?
Ah, hopefully that's a solid date then, rather than the old retailer guess work. I just noticed there being no mention of a PAL release in the IGN game info box.
I have a US console myself so don't really take much notice of UK preorder dates for Wii games.
I'm not sure how reliable that retailer date is though as to my knowledge no release date has been announced for the UK.
Sorry guys didn't think about UK/US release dates.
I got an email from Nintendo on 13th August which has the 4th September as the release date. The first 5000 people who have previously registered a Metroid game can get the NES version for free if they register the trilogy on 4th September.
