Rumortoid: Metroid Prime trilogy coming to Wii? Nintendo says ‘no’

I go to bed for eight hours, and what happens? A rumor of a Metroid Prime Trilogy for the Wii pops up. According to GoNintendo’s source, a SKU for the title had appeared in the computer system of a “certain retailer.” 

Could it be? All three Metroid Prime games in one convenient package? In a statement to CVG, Nintendo has shot down the idea saying its “Purely rumor and speculation.” In other words, “Pictures or it didn’t happen.”

Some people have speculated that this SKU could be the original two titles revamped for the Wii, and repackaged with the Wii game Metroid Prime 3 on one disc. To that, I say “No way, buster.” For one, I can’t imagine that all three games would fit on one disc, and to go back and force Wii remote controls into GameCube titles is really not Nintendo’s style. They’re not Capcom, after all.

If this does exists, it’s more likely a discounted packaging of the three separate SKUs in an attempt to clear out some inventory that’s been collecting dust.
