Speaking to Mashable, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Amie had this to say about the new Metroid backlash:

What the fan at home saw was something in the Metroid Prime universe that they weren't expecting. The reaction has been negative. There's no sugar coating it. This is an example where fans who aren't able to get their hands on the game may be at a bit of a competitive disadvantage. Everyone who has played what we are showing regarding Metroid Prime, they've come across really pleased. My ask is that fans trust us.


I only have so much trust to give, Reggie.  He goes on to discuss Nintendo's approach to creating new games in a franchise, saying "We believe that in order to propel the franchises forward, we have to be the ones to constantly challenge the paradigms, challenge the conventional wisdom, challenge what we thought was the essence of the particular franchise, and a particular form of gameplay."

Will you give Metroid Prime: Federation Force a chance? Are you willing to believe Nintendo nailed the "essence" of the franchise with this entry?

Many Nintendo fans were disappointed by the company's showing at E3 this year.  Most notably, the upcoming Legend of Zelda game for Wii U was totally absent from their digital presentation.  We heard exactly zero peeps about it.  Some worried that this meant the title was being canceled, especially since Nintendo recently announced that they're working on a new console.  Does that mean they're giving up on Zelda for the Wii U?  Not at all, says Shigeru Miyamoto: 

"We're here to talk about Star Fox but Zelda is still coming to Wii U, so don't worry about that.  My thing with E3 is that we always focus on what's coming out in the immediate future. We have some really great Zelda footage and, at some point we will be showing that off, but not today."

Miyamoto's statement may also shed a little light on why Nintendo's E3 presentation was so underwhelming: the company chose to focus on highlighting the short term.  The presentation showed us titles that are coming in the near future, rather than teasing projects that are years away.  And though it made for a lackluster performance, I can respect that.  They didn't give us any new titles to be pissed about being delayed.
