metroidSamus Aran will soon return to planet Tallon IV to battle the Space Pirates, as Nintendo plans to bring the successful GameCube title Metroid Prime to the Wii consoles. And it’s 100% official information, since the game has been listed in Nintendo’s release calendar for this year. Even better, Metroid Prime already has a release date set: February 19!

Still, you should not get over excited since this date is for the Japanese version of the game, but a Western version will certainly be released in the near future. So, yes: Samus Aran is returning this year to the Wii with Metroid Prime! And since I keep talking about this return, maybe a Metroid II: Return of Samus, Nintendo?
