The New Play Control! range.

The New Play Control! series (known in Japan as "Play on Wii Selection") is a selection of Nintendo GameCube games ported and upgraded for play on the Wii by Nintendo. The releases include graphical enhancement and motion sensing controls for the Wii Remote and Nunchuck, among other additional bonuses. There are two games from the Prime Trilogy now re-released for Wii, Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. Both feature a similar control scheme to the one used in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. In the U.S., Europe, and Austrailia, the three were released together as the Metroid Prime Trilogy.

New Play Control! Metroid PrimeEdit

Metroid Prime was released in its Wii form in Japan on the 19th February 2009. The Menu is largely the same but with Wii changes, the small message boxes from Corruption make a return, like the one saying "Nunchuk is required" at the game's start up Menu.

New Play Control! Metroid Prime 2: Dark EchoesEdit

Metroid Prime 2 Echoes was released on June 11 2009, the multiplayer function is also present. The Menu that was present in the Gamecube version has been removed, now a new menu screen with the background that was shown at the start screen is in its place.


  • Super Smash Bros. Melee would have been ported to Wii, possibly under the New Play Control! banner, had Masahiro Sakurai not agreed to develop Super Smash Bros. Brawl after Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata, had announced a Wii installment of the series.
