Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Metroid Prime: Federation Force will launch for 3DS in North America on August 19 and in Europe on September 2, Nintendo announced.

Additionally, Nintendo of Japan has delayed the game from its previously announced June 25 Japanese release to August 25, citing necessary balance adjustments.

The sci-fi shooter, which sees a squad of up to four players working together to combat space pirates, will be playable at PAX East in Boston this weekend.

    I can’t imagine how bad this game will sell.

  • Cael

    I’ve watched the trailers, watched the longer play sessions and I’ve read what people have to say about the game. But no matter how much I want or try, I just can’t like this game.

    Actual Metroid game when?

  • James Reilly

    lol when was the last good Metroid game? Are they the next Sonic?

    The blastball thing seemed like it would be a cool eshop game.

    • Yolkghost

      At first I thought it was an eshop game (thought it was a new IP when they showed it at the Nintendo tournament thing actually). I almost keep forgetting blastball is apart of the game, they don’t advertise that part as much as they used to.

    I was totally uninterested, but after seeing recent gameplay videos I have changed my opinion. Maybe it isn’t a Metroid game at all, but still looks fun, the gameplay looks very polished.

    Yes I’ll buy it.

      enjoy your poop :p

      • Asma Asma

        I will, don’t worry. You keep on trashing games, you’re an ace at it.

        • Budgiecat

          trashing trash is easy when its trash :p

    • Yolkghost

      I hope you enjoy it, i feel the same way about it – I just see so many other games I want a lot more right now.

      As they say to each their own , but the game doesnt have any kind of edge nor does anything to set itself apart , while using the name at the expense of the franchise . If it flops (i feel like i should say “When”) , it will deserves it . Honestly it does look like crap to me

  • ayanami-chan

    No one should buy this.

  • Darak

    ….

    • SuperLuigi

      haha awesome

  • Budgiecat

    why does the JPN version need an extra 6 days for ‘balance adjustments’?
    Is that for gameplay or for text localization? Cause if its the former, thats fucked up they’re releasing a botched version for U.S. first lol

    anyways this a piece a poop so whatever…
