New Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Images

Hot off the news of yesterday’s Metroid Prime 3: Corruption release date reveal, Nintendo has released some juicy screenshots of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption in action.

As you’ll see in the gameplay screenshots, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption looks very similar to the Gamecube Metroid Prime games. There really seems to be no huge graphical update. The Wii specific controls are going to be the main focus with this game it seems, so I really didn’t expect much in graphical upgrades.

Come back after the break for the screenshots as well as information on the upcoming Metroid Prime 3: Corruption

If you think you knew what it felt like to be the bounty hunter behind the visor, think again. Take aim at evil with Nintendo’s revolutionary controller.
* Players control Samus by moving with the Nunchuk controller and aiming with the pointer, allowing for a level of immersion unlike anything they have ever experienced. Through the eyes of Samus, players experience a quantum leap in first-person control as they wield the Wii Remote controller, the ultimate device for the first-person shooter genre.

* Samus will employ well-known power-ups like the Grapple Beam and Morph Ball, as well as a bunch of new surprises, to help her survive her coming trials.

Game storyline: Six months have passed since the events on the planet Aether. The Galactic Federation’s network computer, Aurora Unit, is suddenly and completely corrupted with something like a virus. The Federation believes Space Pirates may be behind the problem and, beginning with Samus, starts to contact bounty hunters. As they explain the situation to the assembled hunters, the Federation is attacked by the pirates. Samus and the other hunters leap to the defense of the Federation capital, only to find that the enemy the hunters face is the presumed-dead Dark Samus. Dark Samus is armed with immense power that no one can withstand. It soon becomes obvious that the forces controlling Dark Samus and the terror of the contaminated Phazon are a dire threat that could corrupt the entire universe.

Characters: Samus, Dark Samus, the Galactic Federation and new bounty hunters.

How to progress through the game: The war initiated by Dark Samus and the Space Pirates rages across many planets as they attempt to corrupt each with Phazon seeds. Players use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers to explore alien landscapes, hunt for weapons and information, and destroy the seeds. Saving the planets from corruption isn’t enough, though. Eventually, players must take down Samus’ mortal enemy, Dark Samus.

Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers, players will be able to grasp and pull things by using actual arm movements, as well as execute amazing feats like aiming and blasting in midair or at a full run. The game also incorporates a new system involving Phazon. If you fill Samus’ Phazon supply to a certain level, Samus will temporarily go into hyper mode, a state in which she can pull off incredible feats; on the flip side, if she exceeds the maximum Phazon level, she’ll perish. Also, for the first time in the Metroid series, Samus’ ship will be used in active game play.

This game may be good but give people what they want and add in metroids again. There is a reason number 2 didnt sell over 1 million copies. The game is called metroid so add them in.

Those new Wii controlls better be pretty great because those graphics look like crap :\

These screens really don’t do the game justice. Watch the videos on IGN and see what I mean about the graphics. They look a little better than MP1&2.

Wow! It looks exactly like the last two, Nintendo is dead to me.

No, the game is called Metroid Prime… and so it is based, on Metroid Prime, however it does fall in to the Metroid series

What, where did you get these? This is old footage from E3, it’s just unreleased footage that was not shown. Anyway, they final product is said to surpass halo 2 by a very large portion. Dont believe me google it up. The wii is far more powerful then you think it is. Just take a looks at super mario galaxy, the graphics are the best thats been out. So dont believe everything that you see.

I know this game is gonna be awesome. And I actually liked MP2 more than the first. Who needs graphics that bad anyway. The best games are still the ones that came out 12 years ago. …by the way, Nintendo will never die, believe me. Starting in august, both Wii and DS will destroy their rivals.

Im getting this game soon and i have a wii already. I have to say that the nintendo has a good and fun game system with the wii… but for one important reason, the REMOTE! The graphic for the game metroid prime dont matter as much as the playing but the graphics are an importan concept. This game has exceded what many thought the wii couldnt. I have checked many websites about this game the graphics for this game are much better than the gamecube series. Here check this site…
Look at the comparison at the top. see the difference?
