Though Retro Studios has unfortunately said that they are not working on a multiplayer mode for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, instead choosing to focus on the single player aspect, it seems a multiplayer mode could still be in the game's future. According to Ngamer magazine, the function could be added later using the Nintendo’s planned WiiConnect24 feature.

“Corruption’s coders at Retro Studios are determined to take advantage of Wii’s ‘always-on’ broadband concept, but they haven’t exactly worked out how yet. If Xbox Live 360’s downloadable updates are anything to go by, you can count on getting at least one bonus level out of it – and Retro is hinting that a multiplayer mode might be a downloadable extra for later.

While this is certainly good news for those of you disappointed by the lack of support for multiplayer in MP3: Corruption – and, I might add, it even holds hope for a variety of other games that may ship without it – I am a little bit worried. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I don’t like the idea of possibly paying for something that should just come with the game to begin with.  But, that is just my opinion on micro-transactions as a whole.

Whether this will pan out at all we don’t yet know (and Retro probably doesn't either), but when we do you’ll see it right here. Check back at VGGEN often!
