Players Can Battle Wirelessly and Talk Smack With Metroid Prime Hunters
The new Metroid(R) Prime Hunters launches March 20 and is an action-packed first-person adventure game for Nintendo DS(TM). Up to four players can play wireless matches locally or using Nintendo(R) Wi-Fi Connection, Nintendo's wireless gaming network, which lets them hook up with friends or battle strangers. Each gamer also gets a Hunters License, which keeps track of key game-play stats and lets opponents size up one another before a match. Nintendo DS owners also will soon let their voices be heard as the title features wireless voice chat technology that lets players talk to one another before and after they face off.
Ever since the demo version of Metroid Prime Hunters came bundled with the first Nintendo DS systems, gamers have been eager to get their hands on the full game. Their patience has paid off. With new bounty hunters, precision touch-screen controls, wireless Wi-Fi battles and voice chat, Nintendo introduces a new level of creativity and fun to this storied franchise.
