Nintendo trolled its fans so hard with the announcement of a new Metroid Prime, that turns out to be nothing like the previous games. Instead, it’s a budget-looking 4 player mech-shooter that craps all over the franchise’s legacy. Naturally, fans are unhappy about it all, and that’s ok. Not so ok? Petitioning for the thing to be cancelled.
Yes, there’s a new petition to have development on Metroid Prime Federation Force cancelled, which just proves what a bunch of whiny babies many gamers are. I’d certainly be happier with a proper Metroid game, and I have zero intention of ever playing this abomination unless its forced on me, but petition to get it canned is just petulant cry baby stuff.
The petition as it stands has nearly 4000 signees, which is nearly 4000 whiny children too many.
Metroid Prime: Federation Force was announced at the Nintendo digital event on June 16, 2015. For almost a decade, long time Nintendo fans have been waiting for a true Metroid game. Metroid is one of Nintendo’s most beloved and respected franchises spanning almost 30 years of legacy. The foundations of isolation, atmosphere and exploration in unknown planets are what made Metroid great. With the release of the Wii U and its greater technological capabilities thousands of fans were expecting a new and improved Metroid game.
What we got however is a disgrace of a game with the name “Metroid” slapped on the title. It has no elements at all of what Metroid is about and its a disrespectful manner to old and new fans of the series of showing them that the Metroid franchise is not dead afterall. This is not the Metroid we asked Nintendo to make. We should let Nintendo know what we really think of the game and make them actually LISTEN to their fans for once. Help us stop this atrocity of a game from bearing the beloved Metroid franchise name and make Nintendo halt production on it.
Yes, the game looks terrible. Here’s a look.
