Metroid Prime Federation Force

 

Nintendo has released a new story trailer for Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Though they call it a story trailer, its more just a 30-second montage of game footage showing a few monsters, battles, and ships crashing. It does look cool, and with the game coming out very soon, we’ll find out how good it is soon enough.

The galactic war between the Federation and the Space Pirates is still raging. I doubt anyone is surprised to hear that. Either way, Metroid Prime: Federation Force lets you enlist with the Federation to fight for what’s right. You can team up in 4-player squads in both online and local multiplayer, or go it alone. Check out the trailer for yourself:

 

Hop into your specialized Mech and customize it for the coming battle. In each mission, you get to choose your role in the squad by choosing different MODs and subweapons. You can setup your Mech more for healing and play as a support unit for the rest of your squad. Or on the other hand, you can go for maximum fire power and unleash your wrath upon the Space Pirates. Your setup could bolster your chances of surviving to win the day, or potentially contribute to your agonizing defeat.

Many players have been displeased by the fact that you cannot play as Samus in Metroid Prime: Federation Force. It has been hinted that we will see her in the game, though. I do agree that this is not the best, and a very unusual turn for the Metroid series. However, I can live with this as long as the game is good. The last DS Metroid game, Metroid Prime: Hunters, was not so good though. Hopefully Metroid Prime: Federation Force will be much better. Either way, we’ll find out soon enough since the game is launching in just 10 days on August 19th. Let’s hope they make a new proper Metroid Prime game for the NX!

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.

    For something called a “Story Trailer” there isn’t much of a story in it.

    Seems like a kind of game you play through with friends to have the most fun. We’ll see if the single player is any good.

    Honestly, if there is ever a metroid prime announcement for the NX that will get people like me really excited.
