Today, Metroid Prime: Federation Force released for Nintendo 3DS. The game was revealed with the 'Blast Ball' gamemode during the Nintendo World Championships 2015, and officially announced during the Nintendo E3 2015 Digital Event on June 16, 2015. Still not sure if you'll want to buy it? Look no further! Keep reading on for a full guide on what is in store for the game.

About the game: The game focuses on the Federation Force, a group of Federation Marines who fight in war against the Space Pirates. The Federation Marines mech was created through a project in the Galactic Federation known as "Operation Golem". The Federation Force must now defeat the Space Pirates in the Bermuda System.

Singleplayer: The singleplayer mode involves missions on the planets Excelcion, Bion, and Talvania in the Bermuda System, in which you must advance to the end and defeat the boss at the end of the mission. There are about 22 missions to play through, each varied and unique from the others.

Co-Op Mode: The co-op mode lets you play through different missions in the game with up to 3 other players via local play, for a maximum of 4 players. Each player must own a copy of the game and their own system in order to use this functionality. You can tackle through the missions, defeating enemies and bosses just like in singleplayer mode, but with your friends helping you out along the way, as well as increased firepower and deeper strategies.

Multiplayer: This multiplayer mode for the game, 'Blast Ball', is what was originally shown at the Nintendo World Championships 2015 back in June 2015, being shown as the world premiere of the game. The objective is to score goals in the soccer-like game, while controlling your own Mech suit. Each match is a 3 vs. 3 to see who will get the most points at the end of the game. There is currently a free demo for Blast Ball available on the Nintendo eShop for a limited time, which only takes up 1,563 blocks on system storage.

amiibo: Yes, the game does have amiibo support in it! If you own the Samus or Zero Suit Samus amiibo, you can tap either amiibo in the game to get more auxiliary ammo in the missions. You can also tap in other amiibo such as Mario, Bowser, Luigi, Peach, and Rosalina to get special paint designs for your Mech, being a design similar to that character of which you used.
