Darker, more mature style with a more colorful, vibrant pallete? As a Metriod fan, I'm worried. The trailer looked so... awkward to me, and with a strange mix of gameplay mechanics. Third person free roaming! Third person side scrolling! Third person not-side-scrolling-but-with-a-fixed-path! First person! Throw in some CG cutscenes that looked like another title with Samus intravenously injected and Samus having voiced lines, I can't help but be worried. I just hope they can pull it off.Jordan Deam said:Reggie Fils-Aime announced another Mature title to add to the Wii's line-up: Metroid: Other M. Co-developed by Nintendo and Team Ninja (of Ninja Gaiden fame) under the moniker "Project M," the game appears to feature a slightly darker, more violent tone than previous Metroid outings, along with a new third-person perspective.
Well, the first hint to it being before Fusion was the fact that Samus isn't in the Fusion Suit (like in my Avatar) but the classic Power Suit. The second would be that she was fighting Ridley, who is DEAD dead (seriously, dead) after Fusion.gmer412 said:Hmm....why did they have to give her a voice? Also, I think this'll be set before Fusion, and I think Adam Malkovich(her CO that she references in fusion) is in it.
it think they will do the targeting in more of a Gears of War style. You will still see the cross hair regardless, but you will be able to see something sneak up on you.fix-the-spade said:Third person?
I realise it's dumb to judge a game that no-one has seen based purely on a camera perspective, but the first person nature of Prime was one of my favourite things about it, it was a first person adventure that worked.
Sad, sad day.
Edit# Watched the trailer, she spoke, which freaking idiot gave samus a voice? Ninja Gaiden clone incoming...
super_smash_jesus said:I would have rather they started a new trilogy with the same developers. This looks alright, but it doesn't look metroid to me, rather a ninja gaiden with a shiny suit. I would like to see a lot more in game footage before I could ever get excited for this.
blackcherry said:I'm very conflicted about this. The metroid prime formula was only established after the origional idea was scrapped for being rubbish and rebuilt. I'm afraid that team ninja, due to their pedigree, may be given more of a leash to mess with things.
Honestly, any new metroid is a good thing. But HtH combat? Switching from first to third person rapidly? Giving Samus a voice? Could be a very mixed blessing.
Through the general tone of this thread, it seems like people are worried about how this game will turn out. First of all, remember that people were freaking out when the Prime series was given to Retro Studiios, so a simple studio switch is not something to worry too much about.PedroSteckecilo said:*groan* Goodness Gracious, an M-Rated Metroid with Team Ninja working on it...
Samas + Zero Suit + Third Person + Massive Jiggle Physics...
This is not a good thing in my mind.

Indigo_Dingo said:Everybody just chill with the jiggle physics. If you watch the video it looks like she boots up her varia suit early in the game and then never takes it off again. Jiggle Physics do not mix with full body armor.Keane Ng said:Oh go, this could be truly awful. Samus Aran with jiggle physics....
