Wii gets Metroid ad channel
To sell you on Metroid Prime Corruption, that blue flash on your Wii is to remind you that this is the “Month of Metroid” with the Metroid Prime 3 Preview. Upon downloading the feature-packed distraction, you get two entire low-res videos of gameplay/cutscene footage, two locked promise vids for next week, and 2 pieces of Samus art. I almost spent 10 minutes experiencing all of it. Also planned in the run-up to the first legitimate Wii game all year are retro Metroid releases for the Virtual Console. NES Metroid hits on the 13th, while Super Metroid comes one week later. One week after that we get the big one, so it’s all a carefully planned sequential rollout to get you pumped.
