How do I play against a friend online?
To play against friends, you must first exchange Friend Codes. Please see the information in the section below for help on how to do this.

Once you have Friends Codes entered, select "Multiplayer," from the main menu, and then "Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection."

Select the "Friends and Rivals " option, and then "connect to NWFC" forward arrow and the green check mark to connect to the NWFC.

  • If you wish to "host" the game, select "create game." Choose the game mode, the hunter you wish to use, and any other options to change. Once the game is created, those waiting in the "search for game" will see your created game appear.
  • To join a created game, "search for game" screen while the DS searches for other players from your Friend Roster who have hosted a game. Once you have connected, you will be able to choose your hunter. Once the all players have chosen their hunter, the battle will begin.

Need help with Voice Chat?
If you have questions about, or are expierencing problems with Voice Chat in Metroid Prime Hunters, please read the following:

  • Voice Chat is available before and after matches. There is no chat during the game. (You will see Voice Chat is available when a small microphone icon is displayed along the bottom of the lower screen.)
  • In order to use Voice Chat, hold down the X Button when Voice Chat is available. Please note that only one person can talk at a time (similar to walkie talkies).
  • You may only chat with those players you have exchanged Friend Codes with. For more information on Friend Codes and Metroid Prime Hunters, please click here.
  • If you are playing a Friends and Rivals match, you will be able to chat with those on your "Friends List" only. You will be unable to chat with those designated as Rivals. Nor will your Rivals be able to hear what you are saying.
  • Make sure the volume on your Nintendo DS is turned up to hear those friends you are chatting with; remember to speak clearly, with your mouth near the microphone (MIC) input.
  • You can adjust your mic's sensitivity by going to the Options screen from the Main menu. Select "Audio." Increase the number in the "mic" section to increase its sensitivity.
  • If you are having difficulty hearing other players, you may want to try lowering the game's sound effects and music in the "Audio" portion of the Options screen, found on the Main menu. Lowering your game's sound effects and music may make other players' more audible.

'You cannot use this nickname' Error Message in Metroid
If you are receiving a "You cannot use this nickname on Nintendo WFC. Please change it and reconnect" message when connecting to Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, then one of two things is likely occurring:

  • You are attempting to use a word that our profanity filters will not accept, or
  • You are attempting to use a name that has a percent sign ("%") in it. This symbol cannot be used in a nickname.

To avoid this problem, enter a different nickname and try connecting again.
