Metroid Prime Hunters Will Be Wi-Fi Ready

Nintendo News: Metroid Prime
Hunters Will Be Wi-Fi Ready

Since the Nintendo DS(TM) first
launched with demo versions of Metroid(R) Prime Hunters, fans have been
clamoring for the completed version of the game. Their patience has paid off.
Metroid Prime Hunters will launch in the first quarter of 2006, complete with
access to Nintendo(R) Wi-Fi Connection, Nintendo’s upcoming online gaming
service. Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection will debut before the end of the year with a
Mario Kart(R) and an Animal Crossing(R) game, and will let players connect
wirelessly with one another as easily as if they were sitting in the same room.

For the first time, fans can get
their hands on a trial version of the new single-player mission of Metroid Prime
Hunters this weekend at the Penny Arcade Expo in Bellevue, Wash. Attendees also
can see three previously unreleased bounty hunter characters in the game. These
include Sylux, a ruthless sharpshooter who harbors an intense hatred for Metroid
heroine Samus Aran; Trace, a young outcast who seeks power and a planet to
invade; and Weavel, a cyborg Space Pirate assassin. For more information and
