A new story trailer for this month’s Nintendo 3DS title Metroid Prime: Federation Force dropped today, showing off gameplay mechanics, enemy types and more.
The campaign set in the Metroid Prime universe sees players take control of a Galactic Federation Force soldier. The player will be sent to various planets to team up with three other Galactic Marines to take on space pirates and other alien creatures.
Metroid Prime: Federation Force, and its companion title Metroid Prime Blast Ball, will be available for purchase and digital download in the U.S. on August 19, in Japan on August 25 and finally in Europe on September 2. Blast Ball is currently available in the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
Nintendo’s tag for the game references Samus’ previous time in the Bermuda Galaxy. “Samus may have won the battle, but the Federation Force‘s war on the Space Pirates is far from over. Enlist with the Federation Force now to join a four–player local or online squad in this co–op sci–fi shooter. Fight alongside teammates in your specialized Mech to eliminate the Space Pirate menace and any threat that stands in your way.”
Also, select GameStop retailers are hosting an event on August 12th from 4:00pm – 7:00pm local time, where attendees can try out a demo of Metroid Prime: Federation Force. According to GameStop, “at the demo event you can play with up to 4 players to take on a variety of co-op missions in this first-person, sci-fi shooter set in the Metroid universe”. The demos will be on the New Nintendo 3DS XL system.
