In an interview with Engadget, Metroid Prime producer Kensuke Tanabe said that the Blast Ball mini-game in Metroid Prime: Federation Force is designed as a crash course in first-person shooter gameplay for beginners. Tanabe sites that in Japan, the FPS genre isn’t as popular, and so a barrier is created in which Japanese gamers don’t feel as comfortable with the Metroid Prime series. He promises that the main campaign will offer difficulty, however. Tanabe sees Blast Ball as a fun alternative to gameplay tutorials.

Hi, I'm Alex. I'm a lifelong Nintendo fan and PC gamer. A few of my all-time favourite video games include The Legend of Zeldas: Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, Mass Effect 2, Rayman 2, and most importantly, Xenoblade. If I ever catch you making a "really feeling it" joke in our comments, you can bet your ass I'll hide it, you casual scum. Feel free to send me a private message if you have something you'd like to discuss... or if you just want to say hi!
