Graphical Effects Missing on Wii Metroid Prime

Eagle-eyed fans have notice that there are certain graphical effects are missing from the Metroid Prime bundle recently released for the Wii.

The video above, created by YouTube member PiccoloCube, shows a comparison between the two, with the Wii version appearing at around the three minute mark. From watching the video, it’s clear that certain water and particle effects are missing. The differences between the two versions are subtle, but quite noticeable once they’ve been pointed out.

The graphics aren’t the only change either, as the first two games can only be played with the Wiimote and nunchuck and not the Game Cube controller. What is confusing is why these changes have been made, as the three games, even with the new controls and the other, nebulous , improvements that have been added, should all fit nicely on a single dual layer disc.

Nintendo isn’t going to have made these changes arbitrarily, so they question remains as to why it did make them. I’m not a game developer though, so I can’t even begin to imagine what the reason is. If you fine folks have any suggestions, we’d love to hear them.
