Metroid Prime Federation Force release date announced, launches this Summer

Kind of a "late spring"

Metroid Prime Federation Force has finally received its official release date. The title will be released this Summer for the US on August 19 and September 2 for Europe, missing its expected Spring release.
 
The European release date was confirmed via the official European Nintendo Twitter account, which you can see down below. While the US version was announced via a PAX East press release which also notes that the game will be available for hands-on impressions this weekend.
 

"Also playable at the Nintendo booth is the Metroid Prime: Federation Force game," it reads. "The sci-fi shooter that finds a squad of up to four players working together to combat space pirates launches exclusively for Nintendo 3DS on Aug. 19."

Metroid Prime Federation force was originally announced back at E3 2015. Despite severe backlash from Nintendo fans, particularly over the Blast Ball game mode, the company is going forward with the much-maligned game, confident that it will be "fresh and appealing" in the end.

The outcry became so severe after the game's announcement, that a petition was started in an effort to get the company to cancel the game.
