This game was literally announced today. It was this morning that Nintendo held it's digital conference when they showed it off. Suddenly, with just the little bit of footage shown, this pops up. If you don't want to click the link, I will post what is said here:
Metroid Prime: Federation Force was announced at the Nintendo digital event on June 16, 2015. For almost a decade, long time Nintendo fans have been waiting for a true Metroid game. Metroid is one of Nintendo's most beloved and respected franchises spanning almost 30 years of legacy. The foundations of isolation, atmosphere and exploration in unknown planets are what made Metroid great. With the release of the Wii U and its greater technological capabilities thousands of fans were expecting a new and improved Metroid game.
What we got however is a disgrace of a game with the name "Metroid" slapped on the title. It has no elements at all of what Metroid is about and its a disrespectful manner to old and new fans of the series of showing them that the Metroid franchise is not dead afterall. This is not the Metroid we asked Nintendo to make. We should let Nintendo know what we really think of the game and make them actually LISTEN to their fans for once. Help us stop this atrocity of a game from bearing the beloved Metroid franchise name and make Nintendo halt production on it.
On the one hand, I get it. There is no Samus and the last Metroid game we got was Other M. But, I feel like the idea of boycotting this game so suddenly is asinine. Instead of boycotting the game, then let them release it and protest with your wallets. It's pretty simple. For all we know this'll be a fantastic game. It wont be because Nintendo is spending more time doing Mario things, but still. Could be good.
