Did The Announement of Metroid Prime Federation Force Deserve The Backlash It Received?

FGE - Since the release of Metroid Other M in 2010 the series, which helped form one half of the genre ‘metroidvania’, has laid dormant.

I have seen at least three articles trying to defend this game. Metroid fans have been begging for a new Metroid game, especially another Prime game, and this is what Nintendo chooses to give

It's an insult and trying to justify this game is only saying to Nintendo "Hey you can do this with all your other series too, we'll give you our money either way"

The problem is that it's been years since Metroid Prime and Nintendo didn't really announce anything else to make up for it.

Some of my most anticipated Nintendo games had already been announced before.

The backlash wouldnt be so strong if there was an actual Metroid game on the horizon. Right now gamers would rather wait for another full-on Metroid rather than these spin-offs. I would anyways.
