Metroid‘s producer, Kensuke Tanabe, recently spoke about Metroid Prime: Federation Force and the goal behind the new multiplayer focus in the franchise. He says that the aim in Federation Force is to tie together the stories of several different hunters, directly comparing it to Marvel’s Avengers. This is one of the subjects we discuss on this week’s episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. You can check out the discussion video above to hear our thoughts on the idea behind the game, the story, whether we like the idea of expanding the Metroid universe in this particular way, and what it means for the future of the Metroid series.
