Trivia: Metroid Prime
Triva for Metroid Prime:
- Breakthrough Hit: This game solidified Retro Studios as Nintendo's biggest western subsidiary.
- Killer App: Prime was one of the reasons to own a GameCube.
- What Could Have Been:
- Kraid was going to be a boss in the Phazon Mines. He got far enough in development that he was modeled and textured◊, but was cut for time. According to the modeller, Gene Kohler, he was not replaced by the Omega Pirate and presumably both bosses were to be fought there.
- The Screw Attack and Speed Boost power-ups were going to be obtainable, but were scrapped. The Screw Attack was later added to Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.
