Metroid Prime 3 video appears on WiiWare

Nintendo looks to have finally gotten into gear with WiiWare and more specifically trailers for its upcoming titles.

A video demonstration of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption has appeared on download on the service as a little treat for Wii owners. (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Wii)

Here's what you get.
Corruption trailer gives your story and overview
Bridge Fight trailer gives you a combat overview.
You also get a new screen shot samus, if you hit the blinking button on the main screen.

On Aug 13th two more trailer's release:
Aurdra and Spider Ball

DLC for MP3 C???
I hope so.

This kicks off a "Month of Metroid" for Nintendo with Metroid (available for 400 points) and Super Metroid (800 points) getting Virtual Console releases on August 13 and August 20th respectively. MP3: Corruption drops August 27th.

Deliberately done!
Yes a good move with bringing in the classic Metroid games, not to mention my all time favorite, Super Metroid! Can't wait to get these games! A very smart marketing move by Nintendo indeed!

What a clever way to bring in more hype with this wii-ware preview! Very cool. Too bad its morning and I'm at work, cause I want to go home and check out this preview!

There have been articles/postings on the internet about how Nintendo is basically botching the advertising and hype-generation for MP3 and I was inclined to agree until this came about. So it seems Nintendo is using MP3 to introduce something new on the Wii (downloadable trailers) while simultaneously building up the game's hype-machine in preparation for launch. Very smart in my opinion.

Damnit...I wanted to pass over this game, but it looks very fun ;_; *loses 50 bucks* Nintendo is so sneaky, after people start complaining about it not having hype.

EEEK!!!!!!!!!!
I started to watch it then I got a gut feeling that I should stop and wait til I get home. So I closed the window asap! Can't spoil the fun when I have a Wii at home. But thanks for the link. XD
