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.

Update: It appears that severs for this “special demo” will only be up for a certain period. However, online functions will still be available in the full Metroid Prime: Federation Force game.

Here’s a big surprise. Metroid Prime: Blast Ball is out on the 3DS eShop, and it’s completely free. The last we heard, this was to be a mode included in Federation Force, but it looks like Nintendo had a change of plans!

Blast Ball supports up to six players. Online play, local play, and Download Play are all supported. It’s 1,563 blocks / 195.375MB.

New gameplay of Metroid Prime: Federation Force is starting to emerge. We’re rounding up all of the footage below.
