Hello, this is Iwata from Nintendo.
A president has to take things really seriously, even if it doesn't seem like it.
It's understandable if you lose weight from stress...but I get fatter instead.
Nobody thinks I'm taking it seriously.

Hello everybody, this is Tanabe from the Prime Series! So, although this time we’ve made the final episode of the Metroid Prime series, have you been enjoying it? So...I have been working together with the Metroid team for five years and, well, I think we are able to make pretty good things together. So...although work on the Metroid Prime series has finished for the moment, well...I think we’ll be making more after the Prime Series. Please, enjoy.

All of you playing Metroid, can you hear me?

Make sure to play it all the way to the end.
See you!

Well, hello all players of the Metroid Prime series! So, this is Kenji Yamamoto, the composer. Well, the Metroid series development began more than 20 years ago, and...well, if you listen well to Metroid Prime 1, Prime 2, and now Metroid Prime 3, and if you listen well, you might say, “Hey! This song is from back then!” And so, you might discover the nostalgic Metroid music that I included. So, listening to classic Metroid music might be one of the ways to enjoy playing the game. Anyway, please enjoy Metroid Prime 3!

Hello everyone, this is Sakamoto from Nintendo. Have you been enjoying Metroid Prime 3 Corruption, the final episode of the Metroid Prime trilogy? You have been enjoying it, I hope? Samus’ missions will still continue outside of this series. Please keep waiting for them. So, please look forward to the next Metroid. METOROIDO...OMOROIDO. [Metroid is fun!]
