1001 Video Games
The GameCube version of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die
by General Editor Tony Mott.
While the Metroid
series was over fifteen years old when Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
came out, this was the first game in the franchise's history to have any kind of voice-acting and multiplayer.
Tallon IV, the planet from the first Metroid Prime
, makes a cameo appearance as a part of the background in the Space Station arena.
