"Since the Nintendo DS™ first launched with demo versions of Metroid® 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® 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® and an Animal Crossing® 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 videos of the bounty hunters in action, visit www.metroidhunters.com."

Although I loathe FPS type games - the first decent one with deathmatches (local wireless) will make a killing.  It's something the PSP can't really compete with.    A proper, free online service is even better of course.

It's a shame that the bastard things don't work with regular access points.

I don't get it. Surely out of all Nintendo's franchises, Metroid is the one that needs an online mode least. People only asked for multiplayer Metroid when they realised MP was done from the first person viewpoint. MP2 proved that multiplayer Metroid didn't really work. They should concentrate more on the single player.

This is all IMO, btw.

Hunters isn't a normal Metroid game though, more a FPS with added Metroidy stuff. The control system alone makes the gameplay completely different, as you're no longer able to just lock on to someone and blast away.
