MPFF Amiibo Support

Another announcement Nintendo made was how MPFF interacts with Amiibo. The Samus and Zero Suit Samus Amiibos will give your Federation soldiers an appropriately-themed skin in the game as well as upgrades your character. If you use any other Amiibo, it will give the Blast Ball mechs a custom paint job.

MPFF Launches Japanese Website, Gameplay Trailer

Nintendo of Japan released a whole slew of new marketing content for Metroid Prime Federation Force. Their official website is far more complete and detailed than anything we've seen on the game thus far. Check out the trailer below (warning: Japanese dialogue and text):

We may be able to provide you with a brief translated summary of what goes on in the trailer at some point in the near future, but we do not have plans to subtitle the entire video.

Archie Comics pitched Metroid comic to Nintendo

In 2009, Archie Comics (gamers should know them for publishing the Sonic the Hedgehog and Megaman comics) tried pitching a Metroid comic to Nintendo. All we know about the pitch was from the brief description:

Archie Comics about around 2009 tried to pitch an idea to Nintendo to have the rights to publish comics based on the Story from the Metroid games. Unfortunately, Nintendo turned it down. I for one wished they didn't. I think a Metroid comic would be great.

This pencil sketches were been released by Tracy Yardley, who drew some panel and concept sketches for the pitch. We don't know much more about it beyond the obvious outcome, which was Nintendo turning down the pitch. Check out the artwork, which has been somewhat light-corrected in Photoshop for better visibility.

I for one would welcome a new Metroid comic series. If done properly, of course, it could be a very awesome thing. Without proper budget, a passionate, competent team, or time, however, we're left with stuff seen in the Nintendo Power comics. As far as I can tell, fans of the Sonic and Megaman comics have been very satisfied overall with the way they have turned out so I truly believe they would have been capable of handling the IP properly.

Thanks to Assad for the tip on Facebook!

Metroid Prime Hunters released on Wii U Virtual Console
MPH

NST's hand cramp inducing, wannabe Prime game is now out on Wii U. Multiplayer is of course, absent from this version due to Nintendo not wanting to re-develop the game to run on custom servers. Who can blame them? If you want a fun shooter multiplayer experience on Wii U, go play Splatoon.

Hunters was released on June 2nd and goes for $9.99. Better late than never, eh? (It came out on Japanese Wii U's last September.)
