Best Wii U Virtual Console Games

Metroid Prime Trilogy

11 of 11

Original release date: 2009
Price: £17.99

This isn’t a single game, but three – Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption – the first two lovingly updated with Wii Remote controls.

The Prime trilogy was created by North American studio Retro and shocked everyone with its depth, challenge and innovative first-person gameplay.

All three games have stood the test of time better than you might expect, with graphics that wouldn’t look out of place in a “true” Wii U release. Each of these games is worth the asking price – getting all three feels like daylight robbery on the player’s part.
