Metroid Prime Federation Force coming to 3DS in 2016

Nintendo has announced that a new Metroid Prime is on its way to the 3DS

It’s been more than five years since we last saw a Metroid game, so Nintendo thought it was time to bring back the iconic franchise.

Announced at its E3 2015 Digital event, Metroid Prime Federation Force is all about multiplayer action offering up to four-player co-op in the Metroid Prime Universe.

Additionally, Nintendo also introduced a new Metroid Blast Ball game mode, which was actually announced at the Nintendo World Championships and offers a 3 vs 3 game mode to mix things up.

Metroid Prime Federation Force is launching on the 3DS some time this year. For the sake of Metroid Prime fans, we hope it’s sooner rather than later.
