Posted on June 21, 2016 by Jason Nason

With the release of Nintendo’s Metroid Prime: Federation Force set for just under two months away, the Japanese website has launched. Included is a lengthy gameplay promo video for the game.

The video showcases a lot of the in game look to the game, as well as detailing a lot of how the game will look once it launches. Blast Ball is also Blast Ball.

The video also briefly mentions some of the amiibo functionality, with Samus and Zero Suit Samus amiibo shown.

Nintendo teases amiibo functionality in Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Posted on June 20, 2016 by Jason Nason

Nintendo shared some information on their social media channels this evening, sharing some information about amiibo compatibility with upcoming Metroid Prime: Federation Force.

While tackling missions in Metroid Prime: Federation Force, tapping one of the two Samus amiibo (Samus or Zero Suit Samus) provides upgrades like additional missiles and ammo for the Slow Beam. Additionally you can add some bling to your Blast Ball matches in Metroid Prime: Federation Force by scanning amiibo. Doing so allows you to add a custom paint job to your Mech.

No word on just what amiibo will be compatable, with only Mario and Bowser confirmed. Neither Metroid.com nor amiibo.com have any updated information regarding which amiibo will work with Metroid Prime: Federation Force.

Metroid Prime Federation Force looks like a fun game

But perhaps I’m in the minority here, but I think the game looks pretty fun.

Sure there are some changes to the look of the game, which is what people are likely upset about. The game’s look and art style is a departure from the METROID PRIME games for the Nintendo GameCube, as well as METROID PRIME: HUNTERS for the Nintendo DS, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I personally think that the look of this game feels like a hybrid between the PRIME games and the METROID games of the Game Boy Advance days, specifically METROID FUSION.

One commenter online even pointed out that some of the people hating on the game might relent if the “PRIME” part of the name was removed. But let’s face it; this isn’t exactly the first time Nintendo’s made a multiplayer adventure game based off of one of their piller properties.
