Metroid, Super Metroid Dated for VC!
It’s been almost three years since the release of Metroid(r) Prime 2: Echoes on the Nintendo Gamecube(tm) and a year and a half since Metroid(r) Prime: Hunters put you Nintendo DS(tm) stylus into overdrive. Now the Wii Shop Channel is here to help get you “primed” for the upcoming release of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption on Wii(tm)!
It all starts with the Metroid Prime 3: Preview. This new channel, available in the WiiWare(tm) section of the Wii Shop Channel, is dedicated solely to Metroid(r) Prime 3: Corruption. From the unique cursor and layout to the movies giving you a preview of the game’s story line and game play. There’s no denying you’ve entered the realm of Metroid.
Next up is the game that started it all–Metroid on the NES(r). Bring on the nostalgia and fond memories as you explore Planet Zebes and get reintroduced to Samus and classic enemies like Ridley and Mother Brain! Metroid is rated E with Mild Fantasy Voilence by the ESRB. Available to download for 500 Wii Points(tm) on August 13 from the Virtual Console section of the Wii Shop Channel.
What better way to follow that than with the Super NES(r) classes: Super Metroid(r). Arguably one of the greatest games ever.

Available to download for 800 Wii Points on August 20 from the Virtual Console section of the Wii Shop Channel.
