Rumor: Metroid Prime: Federation Force Release date

When Nintendo had their latest Nintendo Direct in March this year, Metroid Prime: Federation Force was one of their main attractions! Lead Producer, Kensuke Tanabe, expressed his keen desire to explore the Galactic Federation’s hostile encounters and war with the Space Pirates in this side-story title!

Soon after, many previews for Federation Force were published from outlets’ playtime with a demo version, but no release date for the title was announced; only Spring 2016 was offered as a pending launch window.

No official release date has been stated by Nintendo, but has recently posted May 27th, 2016 as the launch date for Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Although it’s a rumored date, everything seems to be in order for the possible date.

What makes this rumor more credible is that May 27th is a Friday, which is a day Nintendo normally releases their titles. That date also fits within Spring of this year, while also giving plenty of time for Nintendo to fully market Star Fox Zero and much lead time to give attention to Metroid Prime: Federation Force!

Furthermore, under’s listing for Federation Force, a complete game overview for the title is posted:

The galaxy is not at peace. Samus™ may have won the battle, but the war on the Space Pirates is far from over. Enlist with the Federation Force to join a four-player local or online squad in this co-op sci-fi shooter. Fight alongside teammates in your specialized Mech to eliminate the Space Pirate menace and any threat that stands in your way.

Make it a solitary mission or join 3 friends for increased firepower and deeper strategies. In each mission, you’ll choose your role on the team by selecting from different subweapons and MODs to customize your Mech and maximize your chance of survival. Whether you focus on healing allies or increasing your arsenal, your greatest asset is teamwork. Work together, tackle missions, take down bosses, and defeat hostile creatures as one powerful unit. The dangerous Metroid™ universe is now at your mercy. Honor your vow to protect it and fight back…before there’s nothing left to fight for. The next chapter in the Metroid Prime™ saga is here.
