Federation Force was basically that. Someone thought it was a good idea to attach that game to Metroid though which meant it got bashed heavily. It would probably have been better off if it didn’t mention Metroid, or was it’s own thing.
FF was originally a DS game that was shelved until Tanabe decided to dredge it up again for the 3DS due to the New 3DS' control enhancements and more powerful hardware. It was always intended to be a Metroid game.
