Metroid Prime man behind this week's WiiWare download

530 Eco Shooter coming this Friday

Kensuke Tanabe of Metroid Prime fame is behind 530 Eco Shooter, Nintendo's new WiiWare game that will be available for download this Friday.

Tanabe, who watched over the Prime series, is performing a similar role with Intelligent Systems (Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door, Advance Wars, Super Metroid) for 530 Eco Shooter.

It's an on-rails blaster starring Mac, a recyclist from Plant 530. Playing as Mac, you ride through levels on your hover platform shooting aliens called Cannoids with your recycle cannon.

Here's a trailer...
