Have you played it? Didn’t think so
Fans of the Metroid series have taken to Change.org to petition that Nintendo cancel the just-announced Metroid Prime: Federation Force for 3DS stating:
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.
The petition also notes the number of dislikes on the official trailer for the game stating, “Please notice the 90% dislike ratio. NO ONE wants this game.” As it sits 25,575 people have given the video a thumbs down while 2,567 people have given it a thumbs up. So it sounds like 2,567 people do want the game, and you can add me to that list as well because of this. I have a feeling Dtoid’s own Zack Furniss is going to sign this.
