Metroid: Zero Mission arrives this week on Wii U

Good news for Virtual Console fans - Metroid: Zero Mission arrives this week in Europe and Australia on the Wii U's eShop!

Japan has had the game available on their local eShop since June last year, and hopefully North America will follow suit soon. With the GBA titles now covered, we may yet see Metroid: Other M and the Nintendo DS duo Metroid Prime Hunters and Metroid Prime Pinball on the eShop someday - that would make every Metroid game (except Metroid II) playable on the Wii U, not bad!

  1. Why has this not been released in North America yet? If this was a brand new game, I would get that Europe would get it first, due to localization times. But for a virtual console re-release, I see no reason to not bring it to America at the same time as Europe.

  2. The people who want all the Metroid games should have a 3DS and a Wii U, Metroid II and Metroid are in 3DS while Metroid, Super Metroid, Metroid Zero Mission, and Metroid Prime Trilogy. I wish they release Metroid Prime Hunters, and Metroid Prime Pinball for 3DS; and Metroid Other M for Wii U. Then in 2016 two new game of Metroid games for Wii U and 3DS much like Prime and Fusion they almost release at the same time. Metroid for 3DS should be called Metroid Dread and the Metroid for Wii U should be called Metroid Prime: Revelations they should be sequels to Corruption and Fusion

  3. Thanks for the great site. Just played Zero Mission Fusion for the first time and had a great time!

    Just two notes to add.

    1 - Metroid Fusion is currently in the Club Nintendo stars catalogue (I guess ZM is too much of a recent release)

    2 - I looked through the boss guide after I played Fusion. I realised that I think I've found a much simpler way to dispatch the Security Robot with the X parasite. Simply grab onto the railing and head to the far right. If you don't move from the spot, you'll be able to take down the missiles and diagonally attack the bot with rockets while always being out of harm's way.

    I'd have kept that last comment for the Fusion post but can't seem to post comments there.

    Thanks for the great site!
