It looks like the orginal Metroid might be on Metroid Prime. Planet GameCube has the scoop. I can't wait for this game.

So, basically you get a free copy of the original Metroid with your copy of Metroid Prime? That's cool. But it ain't really Metroid without that old NES controller in my hands. It just doesn't feel quite the same.

Nonetheless, this will give younger gamers a chance to see what all the fuss is about. I wonder if the game will still hold its charms over the younger crowd or if they'll scoff at the graphics and simpler gameplay mechanics. Let's hope not, because they'd be missing out on one important game.

It's funny how I used to be worried about this game. I think it was around a year ago when Nintendo scrapped everything else Retro was working on, and the speculation was that Prime was not going as well as hoped.

Now it's looking like Metroid Prime will be the game of the year. Posted Image

That would be really cool if they include it on prime. I loved that game so much as a kid.

I do have agree with you Jeffery. I have to pop in Metroid into the old NES from time to time.

Don't tell me this is a 1st person shooter. It might be interesting if it was the same side-scrolling 2D type we all loved from the old days of NES, but if it is a 3D/1st person game I'm gonna have to pass it up.

Clinton,

You'll have to check out Metroid Fusion for the Game Boy Advance. I don't play much of my GBA, but Fusion will be getting some of my play time in the near future.

Ravensblade, and by all accounts, Prime wasn't going as well as hoped at that point.

Retro has got a great story, hopefully someday it will fully come out.

Indeed, Kelley.

Ever see the website of the ex-owner? Of his "party house"?

Is this what the "awsome" secret bonus with the link up cable is? I was hoping for something more but I wouldn't mind playing the original Metroid again.

Maybe they're including Metroid in the GBA game and the GCN game and you have to collect it in the GCN game to unlock it in the GBA game? Or maybe you unlock Super Metroid in the GBA game?

Playing PS2 games and living in between work and my HT. :wink: In all honsety, this was the first news I've heard of a new Metriod game, but I've been pretty much out of the loop on anything Nintendo since I was so disappointed with the N64.

It's too bad it is a 1st person. I absolutely hate the 1st person feel of games. It's not like they are poorly designed or anything, but something just doesn't feel quite right in the controls of any FPS I've ever played. Maybe it's because you're trying to create a 3-D environment with no peripheral vision and you seem to be looking through a pipe, I dunno.

Going on a bit of what Morgan said, I think I may have an idea how it may work. In the recent EGM, they quote a Nintendo employee as saying that the result of the Metroid GC-GBA connection will be "amazing". EGM didn't examine it much, saying only that it may be an extra suit. If this story is indeed true, I'm going to guess that in order to unlock the 8-bit Metroid, you'll NEED the GBA Metroid game in conjunction with the GC game. Whether it's on the GBA game or the GC game, I dunno Posted Image

We'll see Posted Image
