A new Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3 demonstration featuring Metroid Prime producer Kensuke Tanabe showed a mission from Metroid Prime: Federation Force that had players battling space pirates. It was revealed that each mech in the game has a loadout weight limit, keeping players from entering a mission overpowered. Unlockable mech mods include shields, armor buffs, weapon buffs, and more. It was confirmed that the game will be playable on the regular Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL using the gyroscope. Tanabe says the game was first conceptualized ten years ago. You can watch the footage above.

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!
