Metroid Month at Nintendo World Store in NYC

By François Chang

August 9, 2010

With Metroid: Other M arriving on store shelves later this month on August 31, Nintendo World has named the month of August 2010 as Metroid month. What does this mean for the Nintendo World Store in NYC? It means you can stop by to play both classic Metroid and some of the newly released Metroid titles.

It would have been pretty cool to see some NES and SNES action, but Metroid and Super Metroid will be running on the Wii via Wii Shop Channel downloads throughout the store. Along with those, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime: Echoes and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption will also be playable. I’m assuming the Metroid Prime titles will be played via the Wii version, but it also would have been cool to see some GameCube action, as well.

We will keep you posted on Nintendo World and Metroid as the release date for Metroid: Other M draws nearer.
