Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (Wiiであそぶ メトロイドプライム2 ダークエコーズ) is the highly anticipated sequel to Metroid Prime, become the bounty hunter behind the visor once more and travel to a planet torn into light and darkness. Hunted by a mysterious entity and a warring race called the Ing, Samus Aran must explore the light and dark worlds of this doomed planet to discover secrets and augment her suit's weapons and abilities. And now, for the first time in the history of the celebrated Metroid franchise, up to four players can battle each other as they search for weapons, grapple across ceilings, and turn into Morph Balls to make their escapes.

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes was re-released in Japan in 2009 for Wii as part of the New Play Control series. It has revamped controls that use the Wii Remote's pointing functionality, similar to those of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. The credit system from Prime 3 is also included to unlock the original bonus content, as well as the ability to take snapshots of gameplay. Metroid Prime, Prime 2, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption were bundled together on a single disc as Metroid Prime: Trilogy, released in North America on August 24, 2009. In Metroid Prime: Trilogy, both Prime and Prime 2 contain all of the enhancements found in their Japanese New Play Control! counterparts.
