Metroid Prime: Blast Ball – eShop version’s servers going offline in early September
Towards the end of last week, Metroid Prime: Blast Ball was added to the 3DS eShop for free. It’s basically the entire game that will be included in Federation Force. However, the severs will be going offline at some point. The eShop didn’t specify when, but now we have a better idea. Nintendo’s website mentions: “In early September, the multiplayer servers will switch over to support the full game only.”
So you have until then to play Federation Force online with others. But even after September passes, you can continue to play single-player as well as locally with others.
