The Metroid Prime Trilogy is a series of genre-defining games for a series that defined a genre. Weird sentence is weird, I know, but Metroid Prime 3: Corruption was the game that made me feel okay with Nintendo’s motion controls on the Wii. So much so, in fact, that I found it difficult to go back and play the first two games without a Wiimote.
Nintendo eventually answered my prayers, releasing Metroid Prime Trilogy for the Wii and fixing what I had now deemed broken. Here we are in 2015 though, and if you’re interested in picking up a copy of the game, you can expect to pay around $86. That is, until today.
The Big N has been releasing Wii titles as digital downloads through the Wii U’s Virtual Console for just $19.99. What’s more, if you pick up a newly released game during its first week, you get a 50% discount.
Metroid Prime Trilogy is available now for a fraction of what you’d pay for a physical copy. $10 is an absolute steal for three of the best Metroid games in existence, and you can snag the discount any time between now and February 5th. Your body is, indeed, ready.
