Metroid Prime: Federation Force was not exactly the game everyone had hoped for when it was first announced last year. It saw a massive backlash, including a fan petition for Nintendo to completely cancel the game. While Federation Force ultimately released to a generally mixed reaction here in the West, it seems like it saw a less welcoming story over in Japan. The game debuted at #20 according to Famitsu’s sales charts, selling only 4,286 copies. Compared to other games that launched in the same week, like King of Fighter XIV, which sold a little over 23,000 copies, it is an abysmally low number.
