Metroid Prime 3 Delayed, Screens Released

Retro Studio's highly anticipated first person shooter adventure for Wii has received a slight delay--but we've got new screenshots!

With Retro Studios' anticipated Wii shooter Metroid Prime 3 originally slated for an August 20 launch, Nintendo today moved the release of the game to August 27. The news was included at the end of an announcement detailing the October 1 launch date for The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (NDS).

Perhaps to atone for the minor delay, Nintendo also released a slew of screenshots and character art for the game.

      Metroid Prime 3 is getting a little too close to Halo 3. I would hate for it to get crushed by the overwhelming might of Halo 3 in Sept.

        I don't really think it'll affect it that much. Seems to me the core audience for Metroid isn't the same core audience for Halo at all.
