Nintendo Wii owners who have their console internet-enabled will notice the blue flashing light of their disk drive today, signaling the arrival of the Metroid Prime 3 Corruption Preview Channel.
The Preview Channel is the first of its kind for the Wii, featuring streamed videos of Corruption in action. The channel is free, using up 100 blocks of memory and, in contrast to the US release, comes with six preview videos immediately available. The videos are entitled 'Corruption', 'Aurora', 'Ped Suit', 'Valhalla', 'Dark Samus', 'Meta Ridley' and a seventh, unreleased section displaying the date, '17.10.2007' when highlighted.
The Australian release of the channel arrives over two months after the US version, though it shares a similar time-frame with the release of the complete game. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is scheduled for an Australian release on November 8th.
