Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Should Give Metroid Prime Federation Force Another Go

Imagine if Triforce Heroes was announced when we hadn't got A Link Between Worlds or any 2D Zelda games since Spirit Tracks. People would've gone balistic too.

You're right, they would've. But even as things stand, no one cares about Tri Force Heroes.

Just no point wasting time making spin-offs like these.

Maybe but man oh man... Did they screw up big with that one.

Gonna guess the game bombed.

That's putting it lightly.

Federation Farce should stay dead, and Next Level Games needs to focus on making good games like Luigi's Mansion 3 and Punch-Out.

But Zelda games get spin-offs too. Just look at Hyrulr Warriors. Mario is Nintendo A rated biggest franchise and has been able to branch out to things like Mario General nis and Paper Mario which have grown their own canvases. Hyrulr Warriors seems to be doing the same with the Zelda IP. 

This is true, but I think that part of the problem here is that it has been almost 15 years since we were given a proper 3D Metroid.  There have also been numerous subpar efforts since then such as Other M and Federation Force (even if it wasn't a terrible game, it was not well-received).  Imagine if this was the case with Zelda?  There comes a point where, as a fan, you wonder if Nintendo is even capable of supporting the franchise the way that they did in the generations past.  Putting out B-rated spinoffs during such a drought only reaffirms these doubts and creates frustration for us fans.

Triforce Heroes isn't even a spinoff.



If they ever make another Metroid like that, I'd rather see a new one.

Decent game had bad timing to be announced when the series had nothing to go for it in almost a decade back then.

More like if we hadn't gotten any 2D Zelda games since Minish Cap.

Also, let's not forget that the very first footage we saw of Fed Force was of a Rocket League-like mini-game. People's first impression of FF very much appeared to be Metroid Soccer. I can't even remember if they showed footage of what the main crux of gameplay would be like in the reveal, but that should say something about how much they screwed that thing up from the get-go.

I think were at a point now that it should be safe for Nintendo to try another multiplayer Metroid spin off now. There is a traditional 3D Metroid in development and a 2D one is launching this October.
