Everyone wanted a new Metroid at this year's E3, and Nintendo has delivered one - but not in the form you might have wanted.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force is a 3DS multiplayer title coded by Next Level Games which features four-player co-op missions - online or local - set in the Metroid Prime universe. Remember Blast Ball, the mystery game which was shown off during the Nintendo World Championships? That's actually part of this package.

Federation Force is coming next year. How do you feel about this one? Were you expecting something grander? Let us know by posting a comment.
