Through this E3’s Nintendo Direct, a new Metroid game was finally unveiled. Five years have passed since the last 3D iteration in the series with Metroid: Other M, and a whopping eleven years before the latest foray into 2D with Metroid: Zero Mission. Fans have been clamoring for anything Metroid related, and with Retro dropping hints for this E3, excitement was unsurprisingly high. What we got however, was Metroid Prime: Federation Force. I can’t help but wonder, what is Nintendo thinking?
