Get on board Metroid Prime: Federation Force with a pre-release preview event THIS THURSDAY at EB Games Swanston Street!


Date: Thursday, 1st September, 2016
Location: The Nintendo Experience – EB Games Swanston Street, 67 Swanston Street, Melbourne
Time: 3:00pm - 7:00pm


Be among the first in Australia and New Zealand to experience the co-op action of Metroid Prime: Federation Force!


You are invited to enlist in the Federation Force before the official release date, at the exclusive Metroid Prime: Federation Force Preview Event, organised by EB Games Swanston Street in Melbourne!

Set in the perilous Metroid universe, this sci-fi shooter really packs a punch in multiplayer co-op mode, so bring your mates and play as a strategic squad to unleash your combined Mech powers against the Space Pirate menace!

Please note, there will be limited copies of the game available to play, so you and your squad may need to temporarily enter standby mode before beginning your mission.


Each teammate plays a key role in your mission…

Who will be the heavy gunner, armed to the teeth and ready to take out the toughest enemies?

Who is your keenest marksman, focused on taking out hordes of assailants while others focus on the main mission objectives?

Who will equip themselves with healing capsules to provide key support in the heat of battle to keep your squad in the game?

The choice is yours!


To learn a bit more about some strategies you can put in place in Metroid Prime: Federation Force, watch the Mission Briefing video...

Do you have what it takes to join the Federation Force?

For eager players outside of Victoria (or New Zealand fans across the sea), your chance to experience the newest Metroid universe adventure will be upon you shortly, with the 3rd of September release date fast approaching!

“While it may not be a classic Metroid, it proves to be the kind of strategic shooter not seen from Nintendo before. Its designers enter such uncharted territory with aplomb, and the resulting game is one of the most pleasant surprises of the season.”

“Having four human brains cooperating to tackle the various mission challenges the game throws at you is what Federation Force is truly all about… There's a lot to enjoy with this game by oneself, but in order to fully appreciate it - and vastly improve those high scores - you have to become a part of a squad.”
