Metroid Prime: Federation Force Has Been Delayed
Depending on your feelings about the game, this could be a good or a bad thing.
Whether you're for or against it, Metroid Prime: Federation Force is still coming, although now it's been delayed to August 19 in North America and September 2 in Europe, as Nintendo just announced today. It won't be releasing in Japan on June 25 as previously announced either, as Nintendo of Japan has announced that the game needs "balance adjustments."
The co-op shooter will be on display and playable at PAX East in Boston this weekend, so if you're on the fence about how you should feel about the non-essential Metroid installment, you might get a chance to feel it out for yourself. If you're in the dark about the whole situation, there's been a huge uproar with fans about the game's mere existence, with a petition on Change.org asking Nintendo to cancel the game. It's absolutely ridiculous, but that's how gaming culture is these days.
In any case, now we've got a concrete release date for the game and it's coming, whether you like it or not. Personally I'm interested in giving it a try, especially with the co-op opportunities.
