The Metroid Prime 2 Echoes T-Shirt was an order bonus with Nintendo Power. Promoting both the magazine and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, the shirt was given free to individuals who purchased a one-year subscription to Nintendo Power for $19.95 U.S. or $27.95 Cdn. In an advertisement at the back of the player's guide for Echoes, the shirt was said to be guaranteed to protect the wearer from the environment of "Dark Earth". A disclaimer in the fine print states that this is not an actual guarantee, while adding that Dark Earth does not exist.
