During the "month of Metroid" in August 2007, Nintendo released ten previews of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption through the Metroid Prime 3: Corruption Preview, a channel that was available to download for free from the WiiWare section of the Wii Shop Channel. Two trailers were released about every three days, with the first two released on August 10. When the two previews were released, one featured gameplay while the other revealed a bit of Corruption's plot, occasionally including footage that was not included in the final product in these videos. The channel also included a screen with an image of Samus underneath that could be "cleared away" with the Wii Remote. Two such images could be seen. The Metroid Prime 3 Preview Channel is no longer fully operable or available for download, and can not be placed on a console that has not previously downloaded it while it was available.
Metroid® (NES®, 1 player, rated E for Everyone - Mild Fantasy Violence, 500 Wii Points): The first installment of the immensely successful Metroid series introduces us to the hideous title creatures and the slick, cybernetic bounty hunter Samus Aran. As Samus, your mission is to penetrate the space pirates' home planet, Zebes, and keep them from destroying the galaxy with the dangerous life forms known as Metroids. Metroid has all the high-tech weaponry, creepy tunnels and crawly alien creatures that anyone could ask for. With its deep and complex game play, excellent music and a rare sense of setting, it establishes a frightening ambience that will haunt and entertain you for a very long time. 2b1af7f3a8
