Metroid Prime drops Wii multiplayer

Retro Studios' boss says it's all about the single-player experience

Michael Kelbaugh, president and CEO of Retro Studios, has been speaking about the hotly anticipated Wii title Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. When we say talking we mean crushing the hopes and dreams any of you may have about playing the game online with your mates.

In an interview with GamePro, Kelbaugh was asked if the game would have any online modes. The reply wasn't what we were expecting: "No. It's something we talked about early on, but we only have so many resources. We opted to devote those resources to making a better single-player experience," he said.


Whether that includes any form of online co-op mode remains to be seen. But it looks like those recent claims that Metroid Prime 3: Corruption will be the "biggest revolution in FPS since Halo" have just gone out the window.

Single player only? In this day and age? Let 'em have it below in the comments field.

On the bright side, we've got 15 new screens of that single-player quest, boasting what are easily the best visuals we've seen on Wii so far. Click the thumbs below and take a look.
