Nintendo No Longer Shipping Metroid Prime: Trilogy

Nintendo No Longer Shipping Metroid Prime: Trilogy

Nintendo has said that the limited run of its Metroid Prime: Trilogy on Wii has come to an end and it will no longer be shipping the title.

Answering questions about the availability of the title online, a Nintendo rep told Coffee With Games, “Unfortunately, Metroid Prime Trilogy is no longer being shipped. Having said that, you may be able to find what you seek through the secondhand video game market.”

When asked about the reasons behind the decision to stop production of the title, the rep added, “When first introduced, it was announced that there would be limited availability. However, a reason for this was not announced. That being said, you may still be able to locate a copy via stores that specialize in previously played or used games.”

Of the game’s announcement, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of sales and marketing Cammie Dunaway said, “Metroid Prime Trilogy puts the best first-person adventures all in one place, with a host of new additions that make these three timeless titles more engaging than ever. A great deal of care and detail has gone into Metroid Prime Trilogy, providing longtime fans with new ways to experience the games they love.” There was no mention of the game having a limited run in our original story.
