Metroid Prime: Federation Force & Blast Ball
06.16.2015 - Apothem

Earlier today during their E3 Direct presentation, Nintendo announced two new Metroid spinoff titles: Metroid Prime: Federation Force and Metroid Prime: Blast Ball, bundled together as one co-operative multiplayer focused first-person shooter 3DS experience, developed by Next Level Games and due tentatively in 2016.

This particular title shifts focus from series' heroine Samus Aran to a band of Galactic Federation troopers as they fight the various threats of the Metroid franchise, or engage in a friendly competitive game of mecha-soccer. It looks very much like an up-scaled Metroid Prime: Hunters, and would seem to play similarly as well.

Federation Force focuses on 4 player co-op objective-based missions, and promises a variety of weapons on offer to topple foes with gyroscopic assisted aiming. Blast Ball shifts that focus to 3v3 team matches, literally blasting a giant soccer ball with weapons and power-ups into an opposing goal to score, with the first team to reach 3 points victorious. Blast Ball can even be sent free of charge to friends via Nintendo 3DS Download Play.

Not much else is known at present, but as news breaks you can best your blasters we'll report on it. Hopefully this is a precursor to a proper, full-fledged Metroid experience on either Wii U or 3DS, but if not we're certain it'll be fun all the same. Until then, keep it locked here at the MDb for any and all future Metroid related updates!

We've also created some custom wallpaper so you can customize your desktops!

And that's not all! We also learned that Amiibos will be used in Super Mario Maker so you can play as Samus (not shown in the video, but other cameos were), and also in Yoshi's Wooly World! Isn't Samus Yoshi cute!


Metroid Extreme: Chivalry isn't dead...or is it?
Metroid EX ch 7

Samus and the crew land on a spooky graveyard planet, but little do they know what lurks in the shadows... Is it a zombie? Is it an illusion? And what became of the Deadly Six stars? The one who dares to challenge Samus to a duel is none other than Knight, Greed's general. This chapter is the beginning of an awesomely intense battle so get your read on in our latest scanlation of Metroid Extreme: Duel with Knight!

Metroid Extreme Goes to the Beach
06.09.2015 - CapCom
Metroid Extreme

The latest chapter of Metroid EX is up, and just in time for summer! This time around, Samus and Joey head for an ocean planet. This seaside paradise is complete with tourist shops, friendly locals who most certainly will NOT try to mug you (usually), submersibles in (somewhat) perfect working order, beautiful beaches, and glittering ocean waves that will boil the flesh off your bones. Yes, there's something fishy here, and it's up to Samus to solve this mystery! Along the way, she'll find the last of the Deadly Six Stars, who holds her Varia Suit data capsule...and one big fish!

Until next time...

Poll #7: What do you think of the frequency of our Social Media posts?

Another poll has ended. Lucky #7.

Poll 7

While most of you are disappointed with the lack of posting, you do realize Metroid news comes few and far between these days. We thank you for your patience, but we're also very honored for sticking with us all this time.

We're also very saddened by Nintendo's current Metroid drought, but think of the positives - we received 8 Metroid games (9 counting Trilogy) over the course of eight years (2002-2010), so it was a great run while it lasted. And it successfully spawned an entire generation of new Metroid fans.

Feel free to vote in our latest poll, "Why do you visit the MDb?" Keep in mind you can vote for multiple answers!
