Metroid Prime: Trilogy is a Wii compilation of the three entries in the Metroid Prime subset of Metroid games: Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. For the original two games, the trilogy uses the New Play Control! ports previously released in Japan, rather than using the original Nintendo GameCube versions.

First print copies of the game were released as Metroid Prime: Trilogy: Collector's Edition, which came in a metal case with a slipcover and also contained an additional art book.

Nintendo website (Wii)

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption set a new standard for first-person motion controls in video games. Now it's bringing those controls to the rest of the celebrated series, allowing players to experience the entire Metroid Prime story arc with the peerless precision of the Wii Remote. Nintendo announces Metroid Prime Trilogy, a new premium three-game collection for the Wii console that bundles all three landmark Metroid Prime games onto one disc and revamps the first two installments with intuitive Wii Remote controls, wide-screen presentation and other enhancements.

Each game maintains its original storyline and settings, but now Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes let players use their Wii Remote to aim with precision as heroine Samus Aran. Based on the breakthrough control system that debuted in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, these new Wii controls bring an entirely new level of immersion and freedom to these milestone games.

Gameplay[edit]

The three games included in Metroid Prime: Trilogy play similarly to how they do normally; the controls for the original two games, however, are different due to using the altered New Play Control! versions of the games, incorporating motion-based features from Metroid Prime 3 such as the Spring Ball and Free Aim.

In addition to the games, a number of extra features are included, such as a music gallery, concept art gallery, and various other extras (such as the Fusion Suit in the original Metroid Prime). These can be unlocked by spending credits, which have been incorporated into the previous two games like with Metroid Prime 3. The multiplayer features of Metroid Prime 2 have also been retained for this release. A "Friend Credits" system has also been included, that allows players to send credits to players on their Friend Lists with a copy of the game.
