Metroid Is Coming To Nintendo 3DS – Metroid Prime: Federation Force Announced – E3 2015

Metroid Is Coming To Nintendo 3DS – Metroid Prime: Federation Force Announced – E3 2015

Oh how sneaky can you be Nintendo. During the Nintendo World Championships which were held this past Sunday, Nintendo had competitors square-off in what they claimed was a brand-new futuristic sports game called Blast Ball. The game could best be described as a futuristic version of soccer, however we noticed that it bore a strong resemblance to Nintendo’s space-faring franchise, Metroid.

metroid prime federation force 3Well it turns out that Blast Ball is not a game by itself, but a mode in a brand new game announced today during today’s E3 2015 Nintendo Direct. Metroid Prime: Federation Force is a four-player co-operative experience for the Nintendo 3DS set in the Metroid Prime universe.

Players will have to work together to take down the various monsters that will confront them during the game. Nintendo has not released any details on the story or setting behind Metroid Prime: Federation Force, nor have they revealed if there are any single-player modes available, or if players will be matched up with team members online.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force is scheduled to release on the Nintendo 3DS sometime in 2016.

    I’ll be completely honest here – I haven’t played Metroid since one of the really old ones on the Gameboy. I’d love to try so many of Nintendo’s series (Metroid, Star Fox, Zelda, etc) but the older games are so expensive and I dislike emulators. This looks really cool, and I am definitely gonna get around to buying some old Nintendo titles so I can play the newer ones (or else my gaming-OCD will eat me alive :(.. )
