The stars of Metroid Prime: Federation Force aren’t familiar faces. They’re blank slates, each one a nameless and faceless member of the Galactic Federation marines. However, Samus Aran cameos have been teased and a new video of the Nintendo 3DS game’s twelfth mission shows her showing up to aid a player’s party. (Thanks, Game Xplain!)
In the Metroid Prime: Federation Force video, Samus shows up briefly after the 3:25 mark. In this mission, players are attempting to protect a probe from a Rohkor Beetle. Someone swoops in when the fight appears to be at its end.
Metroid Prime: Federation Force will come to the Nintendo 3DS in North America on August 19, 2016. It will come to Japan on August 25, 2016, then Europe on September 2, 2016.
