In perhaps the most shocking turn of events since Jon Snow died on Game of Thrones, whoops spoiler! Nintendo just announced two new Metroid games for the 3DS, one of which is a soccer game. No I’m not running some ill advised bit, Metroid Prime Blast Ball has officially been announced and I do not know why.
But it isn’t all bad, Metroid Prime Federation Force was also announced. Federation Force is your more typical Metroid title however with a focus on multiplayer albeit with more chibi characters and a cutesy look that is completely estranged from the known style of Metroid.
You can check out both games in the video below. But I really must beg the question, who thought that Metroid would make a good soccer game? Was it you Reggie? Or was it you Iwata? Whoever it was, heed the words of the weird nun from the Game of Thrones finale, SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! Yeah what a bloody right old shame. Also I really am not sure what gutted me more, this announcement or Jon Snow dying on Game of Thrones. Pretty even split on the whole emotion front for me.
