Nintendo has released a short new trailer for Metroid Prime: Federation Force introducing the game’s story.
Here’s an overview of the game, via its official website:
The war between the Galactic Federation and the Space Pirates is far from over. Enlist with the Federation Force to join a four-player local or online squad in this co-op sci-fi shooter. Fight alongside teammates in your specialized Mech to eliminate the Space Pirate menace and any threat that stands in your way.
Make it a solitary mission or join 3 friends for increased firepower and deeper strategies. In each mission, you’ll choose your role on the team by selecting from different subweapons and MODs to customize your Mech and maximize your chance of survival. Whether you focus on healing allies or increasing your arsenal, your greatest asset is teamwork. Work together, tackle missions, take down bosses, and defeat hostile creatures as one powerful unit. The dangerous Metroid Prime universe is now at your mercy. Honor your vow to protect it and fight back…before there’s nothing left to fight for. The next chapter in the Metroid Prime saga is here.
Metroid Prime: Federation Force is due out for 3DS on August 19 in North America, August 25 in Japan, and September 2 in Europe.
