Metroid Prime: Federation Force was mainly designed as a single-player experience. But you can acquire a helpful mod along the way, making play easier.

Only in single-player, it’s possible to obtain the Lone Wolf “mod”. This not only doubles the damage dealt, though also halves the damage from enemies. Metroid Prime: Federation Force also lets you fill out your party with flying attack drones. Three can be brought along when playing alone.

Kotaku has also given us a look at two different control configurations in Metroid Prime: Federation Force. The first can only be used by those with a regular 3DS, while the second is another option for New 3DS owners.



GameXplain has just released the opening story cutscene for Metroid Prime: Federation Force on their YouTube channel. You can check it out below.

Nintendo has prepared a short trailer to highlight the story in Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Watch it below.

This coming Friday (August 12), select GameStop locations will be hosting a Metroid Prime: Federation Force demo event. Fans can stop by stores between 4 PM and 7 PM local time to try out the game before launch. Nintendo says you’ll be able to play with up to four others in various co-op missions.

Head past the break for the lineup of participating GameStops. Metroid Prime: Federation Force arrives on August 19.

With Metroid Prime: Federation Force launching in two weeks, the full North American website is now online. You can visit it here.

The Metroid Prime: Federation Force site has the usual suspects of content. Visitors will come across game information, footage, and screenshots. The game launches on August 19.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force and Style Savvy: Fashion Forward are heading to North America on August 19. Those who plan on purchasing these titles digitally can now pre-load them from the eShop. That means you can download most of the data ahead of time, with only a small update needed at launch.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force is 10,241 blocks / 1,280.125MB. Style Savvy: Fashion Forward takes up 6,767 blocks / 845.875MB.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force can now be pre-ordered from the Nintendo UK store. If you do so, you’ll receive the mousepad pictured above. Orders can be placed here.

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.


We have another round of media for Metroid Prime: Federation Force. This time, we have a look at some art, including a bunch of enemies. Check out the full set below.

Metroid Prime: Blast Ball made its way to the 3DS eShop earlier today. Check out 23 minutes of footage from the download below.
