Metroid Prime Trilogy is $10 on the Wii U right now, go buy it

If you buy something from a Polygon link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Metroid Prime Trilogy, which includes the acclaimed GameCube originals Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, as well as Wii classic Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, is currently 50 percent off. The offer is good today until Feb. 5 at 8:59 a.m. PT, so if you're craving spacey first-person action, get on this now.

The compilation was originally released on the Wii in 2009, but it was discontinued less than six months after release, so the game has always been in short supply. It added Wii Remote controls to the original GameCube games, as well as 16:9 support.

One caveat, if you can call it that — you'll need a Wii Remote and Nunchuck to play the game. Sadly, there's no Wii U GamePad support.
