Metroid Prime Trilogy releases in Australia on October 15. Back in July, Nintendo told us we'd be getting something "special" with it. Looks like those plans have been shelved.
That pic up there is of the North American packaging, complete with snazzy metal case. Inside it also comes with a Metroid art book.
When I spoke to Nintendo Australia boss Rose Lappin in July, she said, "it’s got a little…special item in the book. That’s definitely coming."
She didn't elaborate on what this special item might be, but we figured—quite reasonably—we'd be getting the same collectible edition releasing overseas.
IGN AU just got their hands on a local copy and the results are...less than special. There's a cardboard sleeve housing a standard white plastic game case. Inside, there's a manual, Club Nintendo card and some sort of fold-out pamphlet. Check the link below for pics.
I feel so special right now.
