Nintendo's Epic Trilogy Concludes With Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

Nintendo has launched METROID PRIME 3: CORRUPTION for Wii, marking the end of a trilogy. With the motion-sensitive Wii Remote, you become one with heroine Samus Aran's powerful arm cannon, while the Nunchuk can literally yank armor off enemies.

"METROID PRIME 3 has a revolutionary control style that makes it easy for anyone to immediately jump into the action," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's SVP of marketing and corporate communications. "Now, an entirely new audience can experience this amazing first-person adventure."

The story requires players to use their heads as much as their hands. Complex puzzles, tough enemies and new challenges put players inside the visor of the story's heroine. As deadly Phazon threatens to corrupt Samus, she harnesses its power and attacks her enemies with superpowered weapons. METROID PRIME 3: CORRUPTION features voice acting, new bounty hunters and three adjustable control settings for players of all skill levels.

The game, rated T for Teen, launches exclusively for Wii. The game's launch represents the culmination of Nintendo's "Month of Metroid," which has featured free METROID PRIME 3: CORRUPTION videos available for download in the Wii Shop Channel and the release of the classic METROID and SUPER METROID for the Virtual Console.
