Metroid Prime Trilogy Download
if you’ve been following closely, you’ve noticed a few warnings that appear when you load up the game. this is actually a very important topic, and the warnings are there for a reason. metroid prime trilogy uses the dolphin name, and is one of the most demanding games ever developed for the wii u. the reason it was released with so few options is because the gamepad can only handle a few select resolutions.
i know there are some people on here who have already played the game, and see a download as a great reason to waste money on something you already own. they can’t understand why anyone would buy a game for twice as much as they already own and spend money on the download.
gta iv is the biggest example i can think of. currently the basic version is around $30, both ps3 and xbox versions are just $20, but it’s not uncommon to find a ps3 for $100-125. the download is just as expensive as the physical version, but there is a huge difference. no one who downloaded the game is going to play it, but there is no doubt this copies will be sold plenty at gamestop and ebay. no sense in them just waiting around and hoping to find the game at a cheaper price. if people buy it for the download they are going to sell, if people buy it for the physical they are going to sell.
games developed by retro studios are just some of the best looking on the wii u eshop. trilogy, however, stands out from the crowd as it has the highest resolution graphics, we can say that with great certainty due to the fact the other two games have been developed by other teams.
all said and done, i feel it’s worth it to buy a copy of each and every game in the metroid prime trilogy set, as they all have their individual and unique merits. the greatest part is that every game in the metroid prime trilogy is included on the rom download page, for easier access. as of right now, the most recent (biggest) rom file for trilogy is the version 1.4 update , which includes support for the (awesome) dolphin virtual keyboard. to ensure that the download will run faster, i have also included tri’n’r, the third game, but the game plays perfectly fine without it. so, if you want to download the full update, you will need to add tri’n’r, all by itself, to your download list, but it isn’t included on the download page itself.
the metroid prime trilogy download contains the appropriate emulator files, roms, images and music files for each game. it also contains the “superplay” script file, which is an emulation of the dsi format, and is the method that allows a nes game to be played on the touchscreen, using only one analog stick (aka, using the left stick for movement, and the right stick for the analog directions). it can also be used to emulate a game boy. it also includes a dual core script file for an emulator running on dual core pcs.
the full device that plays metroid prime trilogy was released for the us. the canadian release is much smaller (1gb) and only includes gamecube emulation, as nintendo of canada has stopped releasing gamecube hardware since 2009. this guide was originally made for the us release of the full device.
