Metroid Prime 2 Echoes has been released a long time ago on Nintendo GameCube, and the game has only been ported to the Wii consoles as part of the Metroid Prime Trilogy. Both consoles are not particularly powerful, so the game doesn't look the best, but today we can check out how gorgeous it can look thanks to a new video.
The new video shared by Robert Dykes shows Metroid Prime 2 Echoes running at 4K resolution using an AI enhanced texture pack released a couple of weeks ago. Needless to say, the game looks stunning.

The next entry in the series, Metroid Prime 4, is currently in development for Nintendo Switch, but it will be a while before we see anything new of the game. The game was initially developed by multiple studios, but Nintendo eventually decided to reset development and let series' creator Retro Studios handle development by themselves.
