Metroid Prime: Trilogy is an action-adventure video game compilation developed by Retro Studios and published by Nintendo for the Wii video game console. It features Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption on a single dual-layer disc. The former two, which were originally released for the Nintendo GameCube, have been updated with many of the features that were first implemented in the latter. It was released in North America on August 24, 2009, Europe on September 4, 2009, and in Australia on October 15, 2009. It comes packaged in a Steelbook case (only available in the North America release), contains an art booklet, and includes other features; it is one of three Wii games to come in a non-white keep case (the others being New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Zangeki no Reginleiv).

Problems

Crashes

The game crashes when launching any of the games. This happens because Dolphin doesn't support soft-resets/multiple dol files yet. See issue 233

The problem can be worked around by replacing "main.dol" file in DATA-partition of ISO image to either rs5mp1_p, rs5mp2_p or rs5mp3_p.dol depending on which game the person wants to play. All games except Metroid Prime 3: Corruption can be booted using this method.[1]

Not working

The HLE sound plug-in appears to not work.

Performance issues

Performance in general seems reduced compared to its purer Gamecube counterparts. The alternative to the not working HLE sound plug-in, the LLE plug-in, as usual is very slow.

Configuration

See Gamecube counterparts for Metroid Prime 1/2 configuration -> Metroid Prime GC. Metroid Prime 2 GC.

No configuration changes are known to affect compatibility for this title.
