Right now Nintendo is building the hype for Metroid: Samus Returns, but it's not been that long since our last game from the IP graced the 3DS. Metroid Prime: Federation Force was divisive (to put it mildly), and is now one year old. Amusingly, our editor Tom Whitehead and reviewer extraordinaire Conor McMahon only recently finished a...
Primarily fixes issues with Blast Ball
Metroid Prime: Federation Force has been out for a few weeks now, offering fans a unique – albeit divisive – take on the world of Metroid Prime. Considering the online-centric gameplay – both in the main game and its extra mode, Blast Ball – one would think that it would be updated fairly regularly, yet...
A long way off the top 40
Recently we reported on Metroid Prime: Federation Force enduring a poor launch in Japan, missing the country's top 20. Unfortunately, today's Chart-Track UK charts don't bring any better news. The Next Level Games-developed title is absent from the all- and single-format top 40 charts for the country, and the picture is...
A force to be reckoned with?
Ever since Metroid Prime: Federation Force was first unveiled at E3 2015 it's proved to be somewhat of a controversial entry into the Metroid franchise - even more so than Other M if that were possible. Some bemoaned the lack of Samus, others weren't a fan of the chibi-style characters, yet some were cautiously...
Game over man
Those poor Federation Force troopers, all they want to do is save the galaxy and be honoured for the effort, showing that on-the-ground grunts are valuable in the fight against Space Pirates, and probably cheaper than the fees for highly skilled Bounty Hunters like you-know-who. Yet they're doomed to be criticised forever more because...
Free mousepad with the game... why not?
Nintendo's Official UK Store is back in the game with another set of pre-orders, offering up a semi-controversial 3DS release and some lovely but pricey figurines. First of all there's the Metroid Prime: Federation Force pre-order which comes with a mousepad. A slightly odd extra, but it's available for...
Including a section outside the suit
Metroid Prime: Federation Force isn't far away, with its blend of co-op shooting on the 3DS set to be quite a diversion for the series. The free release of Metroid Prime: Blast Ball recently may have helped win over a few naysayers, and now there's some interesting footage kicking around that 's from the official...
Insane in the Mother Brain
It's safe to say the general - or at least loudest - response from Metroid fans upon the reveal of Metroid Prime: Federation Force was one of disappointment. One year on and things have calmed down a little bit, but is there enough in this game to sway those who spoke so strongly against it at E3 2015? First and foremost...
So, it's got that going for it
The highly divisive Metroid Prime: Federation Force is due to come out in just a few short months, yet there's still a lot we don't know about the game. It was disappointingly absent from E3's showing, and it would've been nice to see how the game is shaping up after last year's middling reception. Still, it hopefully...
Game will also feature RPG elements
There has been much scepticism about Metroid Prime: Federation Force, which series producer Kensuke Tanabe addressed head on in today's Nintendo Direct broadcast. He also showed how Samus Aran will make a cameo appearance in the game, although she will not be a playable character, and we learned that this one is...
Super deformed Samus
It's no secret that the reaction to the reveal of Metroid Prime: Federation Force during E3 this year was somewhat negative. We even ran a talking point about the self-entitled fury which led to a petition demanding the cancellation of the game. As the petition now has over 22,000 supporters, it can safely be sa
A "Nintendo game", not just an FPS
We all know about the continued damage control around Metroid Prime: Federation Force, so how about we think about the actual game instead? Thankfully producer Kensuke Tanabe is happy to do that, and he's shared some interesting thoughts on the game with Wired. For starters, we have Blast Ball. Unveiled at the...
