Transmission Console

Samus operates her transmission console.

The Transmission console is an interface within Samus Aran's Gunship in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption that allows her to communicate with others. It is required to use in the beginning of the game to board the G.F.S. Olympus when a squadron of Stiletto-class fighters request Samus' security code. A number of notable brodcasts can be found that are actually from Japanese Nintendo developers. Several other frequencies can be listened to, although the voices are distorted and appear to be in an alien language. The transmission console is similar to radio due to these functions.

In Metroid Prime Trilogy Data Storage B, a room on Norion has all the codes contained on a terminal it.


"Transmission console is used to send data and connect to active radio frequencies."

Hello. This is Iwata from Nintendo. President is, though I don't know how I appear to others, in fact a fairly tough job. If you lose more and more weight when you're busy and tough, then they show sympathy, but I get heavier instead. So when I put on more and more weight, people seem to misunderstand that I'm not feeling anything. That's not what I expect.

Er, all players of Metroid Prime 3, hello. Er this is Kenji Yamamoto, the composer. Er the Metroid series development began more than 20 years ago, and er if you listen well to Metroid Prime 1, Prime 2, and now Metroid Prime 3, "hey, this is that piece from back then!", or uh, you can feel that way, er, nostalgic Metroid music, so that you can discover, er we've developed it. Er playing while enjoying the sound with the memory of past Metroid games, er is maybe a way to enjoy Corruption. Now, have fun with Metroid Prime 3.
