Metroid Prime Trilogy is a Wii video game released in America and Europe in 2009. It consists of all three Metroid Prime games including Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. All three games are contained on one disc and can all be accessed through a hub. The two former games are ports of the New Play Control! versions which were released exclusively in Japan. The game comes with a small art booklet. People who reserved the game at GameStop received a free Samus Aran t-shirt and poster depicting three different variations of Samus' suit and enemies and locations from the series. For a limited time, players in the United Kingdom who purchased this game could receive Metroid for free through Virtual Console.
Some of the Chozo Lore entries and Space Pirate logs from Metroid Prime were removed due to inconsistencies with the plot. The removed Chozo Lore entries explained how they raised Samus Aran despite the fact that the Chozo from Tallon IV hadn't encountered her. The removed Space Pirate logs involved Metroid Prime, though it wouldn't make since how they knew of its existence since it was sealed off by the Chozo, and could only be opened by collecting various keys which the Space Pirates were looking for at the time1.
When an Ice Trooper is frozen, they won't shatter when the player shoots them with a missile.
Various effects from the original have oddly been removed including vapor from your cannon, lava particles from the Plasma Beam, and various water effects.
Various scenes from the PAL version were put in the NSTC version 1.
After getting his wings burnt off, Ridley will have more attacks.
Thardus has melee based attacks when the player approaches him.
Space Jump glitch has been removed from the game, which allowed the player to get the Space Jump very early on in the game.
