The folks over at GameXplain managed to get 20 minutes of gameplay from the upcoming and controversial title Metroid Prime: Federation Force from the PAX East show floor. Along with a look at the action the game offers, it also gives us a first look at how players will communicate with one another without the use of voice chat.

Much like The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, which gave players access to several emoticons as a means of communication, players will be given access to pre-recorded soundbites like “Over here” and “Good job” as a substitution for good, old-fashioned voice chat.

What do you think? Is Metroid Prime: Federation Force gearing up to be the disappointment that many have already made it out to be? Do you think it could be better than expected? Let us know in the comments below!

Metroid Prime: Federation Force launches on the 3DS on August 19th.
