The newly announced Metroid title, Metroid Prime: Federation Force, is unique for the fact that Samus is not the main character. In an interview with Engadget, the head of development for the Metroid Prime series, Kensuke Tanabe, spoke out about why that is the case.
Here’s a direct quote form Tanabe:
“In Metroid Prime 2, we included multiplayer, but here we wanted to focus on the co-op aspect. But then, if we have four “Samuses,” that would be odd. And that’s where the Galactic Federation came in. Controlling the game, and in terms of how it feels, it feels like a Metroid Prime game.” — Kensuke Tanabe
