Metroid: Other M was just reveled this morning at e3 2009, and it is back with a vengeance! The suit Samus uses in this game is the nearly the same that was used in SSB: Brawl and the 2D Metroid sidescrollers! The character design/artwork and theming has been updated to an almost anime feeling, mixed with SSB: Brawl, Final Fantasy, Halo 3, WALL-E, and of course, Metroid, all put together, art style. This game looks fantastic! The game is (most likely) played in both first and third person.
Adam has been reveled, and plays a role in this game, possibly a major role. Also, Mother Brain is back to its form from Super Metroid, sparking some rumours that this game nay be a 3D prequel, or possibly a remake telling the whole story behind, Super Metroid.
This game is being developed right now by Team Ninja, which, according to Tom Magrino, GameSpot, "Team Ninja is known for delivering intense gameplay, and that reputation was on full display with the brief Metroid: Other M trailer that was shown. After a cutscene shows a young woman later identified to be Samus in a sci-fi military base, the trailer shifted to in-game action of Samus in her iconic armor battling a variety of enemies both with ranged and melee combat."
There may be new villains, possibly even Weavel from Metroid Prime: Hunters, as it vaguely appears. And, is DARK SAMUS shown in the trailer??!!
This looks like someplace familiar. Zebes, perhaps?
Planet SR388? Sure looks like it.
Overall, this game looks kick-@ss with tons of action, still being true to the Metroid mythology. Metroid: Other M is set to be released for Wii sometime next year, 2010.
Lets all wait and see and hope for the best!
You don't think I'd leave you without the official trailer, would you?!
Your video may have problems with the audio. It is a CNet server glitch. I cannot fix it. It should be fixed shortly, if not yet.
