Metroid Prime: Federation Force is a multiplayer, Metroid spin-off title that was announced yesterday. However, it turns out that it is not the first attempt at a multiplayer Metroid game. In an interview with Engadget, Kensuke Tanabe, the head of Metroid Prime Development shed some light on the cancelled DSi game.
Here’s what he had to say:
Engadget: Why hasn’t there been a co-op mode until now?
Kensuke Tanabe: We tried to fit a multiplayer Metroid game into the DSi, but the power of the system was lacking — it didn’t quite work as expected. But with the 3DS we had the power to make that capable.
